Malaysia Postpones B20 Biodiesel Until December 2021

Oleochem Analytics — Malaysia will delay the implementation of the 20% biodiesel mandate (B20) into the transport sector by six months.

B20 will now likely be introduced in Sabah state in June and the rest of the country in December, according to Malaysian Palm Oil Board director-general Ahmad Parveez Ghulam Kadir speaking at the virtual Palm Oil Economic Review and Outlook Conference 2021.

This is the second postponement to Malaysia´s program to lift the mandate from B10 because of the pandemic having pushed back the implementation.

The B20 mandate is expected to double domestic biodiesel consumption to over 1m Mt/yr once fully rolled out.
