The article discusses issues regarding the decision of Malaysia's Ministry of Plantations Industries and Commodities to enforce a blanket ban on issuing new biodiesel licenses until it can fathom out exactly how much the country can produce and if too much palm oil is being taken from citizens. While a blended fuel certainly cuts emissions, the country plans to introduce its own 5% blended biodiesel in 2007.
