Malaysia has approved licences for 86 biodiesel plants but the bulk of that
may not even start because of rising feedstock prices and an easing crude oil
market, the country's commodities minister said this
"All these approved plants have not started because they know that they will
have to take a very strong commercial decision on putting money into biodiesel
plants," Peter Chin told Reuters.
"Judging from what is now taking place,
a dozen plants will start, producing around 3 to 3.5 million tonnes in the next
two to three years," he added.
