Malaysia aims to fully implement B20 biodiesel mandate by year-end

  • Malaysia plans to implement its nationwide adoption of the B20 palm oil biofuel programme by the end of 2022, the country’s palm oil board said.
  • The mandate to manufacture biofuel with a 20% palm oil component –known as B20– for the transport sector was first rolled out in Jan 20 but faced delays due to movement curbs imposed to contain coronavirus outbreaks.
  • “We will do it stage-by-stage basis depending on the government’s financial capabilities,” Ravi Muthayah, the commodities ministry’s secretary-general said during a seminar.
