ABSTRACT
The article discusses the move by the Malaysian government to impose a moratorium on new biodiesel plants in the country. Malaysia's government has received a rash of requests for permits to build plants to convert palm oil to biodiesel. However, the government is worried about three issues. It is worried about a potential shortage of palm oil, which could lead to speculation in the commodity and damage the business of palm oil farmers and help upset the rural economy.
