High oil prices fuel biodiesel switch

BIODIESEL is a worldwide phenomenon with multi-million dollar projects sprouting up in US, Europe and Asia.

Its advocates claim that biodiesel - a mixture of any vegetable oils (rapeseed, palm oil, soyabean and others) and petroleum diesel - is environmentally friendly and can be distributed using existing infrastructure.

As economies of scale improve, it could even replace fossil fuels as the world's primary transport energy source.

A Malaysian Palm Oil Board official said with the current biodiesel price of US$700 (RM2,576) a tonne, the industry gets a profit margin of US$200 (RM736).
