ABSTRACT
The article discusses the efforts of Malaysia to establish closer links with producers of vegetable oils used for biofuels in the European Union (EU) according to a spokesman for the Malaysian Palm Oil Council (MPOC). At the World Biofuels Market Congress, Tan Sri Yusof Basiron, chief executive officer (CEO) of the MPOC, said that standards and sustainability were important and that there was an unfounded fear that palm biodiesel demand in the EU would negatively affect Malaysian forests and ecosystems.
