ABSTRACT
The article reports on the flow of investments for biodiesel production in Malaysia. Because of the rising global demand for biodiesel, companies including Sawit Biodiesel and Incoprime have revealed their plans to build biodiesel plants in the country. The plants will use refined, bleached and deodorized palm oil as feedstock. Recognizing the potential for export revenues, the Malaysian government is providing licenses and investment incentives to promote the building of new biodiesel capacity.
