yes it is still haram there are many hadiths that say it is haram to sell as well as consume

“May Allaah curse the Jews, for when Allaah forbade them animal fat, they melted it down and sold it, and consumed its price.” (Bukhari 3:34:438)

the prophet curses those who sold it since they were not allowed to consume it themselves and the prophet is saying this to the jews this isnt even adressing muslims and thats because he assumed we would know better than the jews when allah says we cannot consume it we shouldnt be incouraging others to do it too you get the same bad deeds as being the one who is actually eating it
