South East Asian biodiesel producers have dampened down hopes of a rise in export sales despite having surplus product available.
Countries like Indonesia and Malaysia have seen consumption slashed as the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown measures have lessened demand for fuel.
Malaysia's lockdown is similar to many western countries with shops closed and streets deserted.
Malaysia has decided to put back the nationwide rollout of its 20% biodiesel mandate until the country lifts its lockdown.
Indonesian producers have been running at full capacity to meet the domestic mandate which was raised to 30% from 20% this year.
