Renewable Energy Description:

The Biofuel Industry Act of Malaysia followed shortly establishment of National Biofuel Policy of Malaysia in 2006. The Biofuel Industry Act was introduced to further regulate and facilitate sector development.

Production of biofuel:

  • Construction of any biofuel plant or biofuel blending plant;
  • Production of any biofuel;
  • Blending of any biofuel with any other fuel or biofuel;
