Malaysia: Biofuels Annual

The planned rollout of 10 percent biodiesel blend (B10), initially scheduled on July 1, 2016, and deferred to January 1, 2017, has been postponed indefinitely. Post believes it could likely be implemented in 2019. Consumption of B7 in 2016 was at 279 million liters and forecast to increase to 300 million in 2017 and 400 million in 2018. A 15 percent blend is the goal for roll-out in 2020. Malaysia exports palm methyl ester biodiesel, but there are little to no imports. There is no significant production or use of fuel ethanol.
