KUALA LUMPUR: Next year’s implementation of B20 biodiesel for the transportation sector is timely at a time when the country’s palm oil industry is facing a tough time, in addition to the ongoing discrimination against the commodity by the European Union, said the Primary Industries Minister Teresa Kok (pix).
She said cooperation with petroleum companies in the country is crucial, for upgrading works at blending depots throughout the country.
“The quicker we implement the programme, the soonest it could help in reducing the country’s stock level (of palm oil),“ she told reporters after attending the Malaysian Rubber Board assembly here today.
The implementation of B20 biodiesel is expected to boost the demand for palm oil by 500,000 tonnes per annum. – Bernama
