The federal government has formed a special joint committee to ensure that crude palm oil (CPO) prices will remain stable when Malaysia introduces B20 biodiesel fuel next year.

The joint committee is headed by the primary industries ministry and consists of the finance and international trade and industry ministries and the Prime Minister’s Department.

Malaysia should leverage on its strong biodiesel exports and be more aggressive in the implementation of its B10 biodiesel mandate, according to Sathia Varqa, owner and co-founder of Singapore-based Palm Oil Analytics (POA).

“Malaysia is not only late, but is missing the window of opportunity since April when crude palm oil (CPO) started to become cheaper than gas oil (diesel),” Varqa told theedgemarkets.com.
