ABSTRACT
The article reports on the growing interest in biofuels in southeast Asia, as rising oil prices drive governments to cut dependence on fossil fuels. Thousands of petrol stations in Thailand already sell gasoline blended with ethanol. In March 2006, Malaysia launched Envo Diesel, a locally made branded blend comprising 5% palm oil and 95% diesel. In July 2006, the Indonesian government said it would invest $22bn over the next five years to promote the use of alternative fuels using crops.
