This report examines the history and status of the biofuel industry in Malaysia, focusing on government support policies. It forms part of a multi-country effort by the Global Subsidies Initiative (GSI) to characterize and quantify (to the extent possible)government subsidies and other support for biofuel production, distribution and consumption, including support provided for the production of key inputs. The environmental and social impacts of biofuel production are also reviewed.
