Malaysia considers expanding its B10 biodiesel programme
Malaysia, the world's second biggest producer of palm oil, currently implements the B10 programme only for the transportation sector.
Minister Fadillah Yusof did not say when a decision on the B10 mandate for industrial use would be finalised.
Malaysia has rolled out a B20 programme in phases, and the nationwide implementation of that would increase crude palm oil consumption to over 1 million tonnes per annum, Fadillah added.
A mandate to use biodiesel with 30% palm oil would be implemented by 2025, Fadillah said, reiterating Malaysia's earlier targets.
