[KUALA LUMPUR] Malaysia will defer implementation of its higher biodiesel mandate to a later date, without specifying when, state news agency Bernama reported on Tuesday, citing Minister of Plantation Industries and Commodities Mah Siew Keong.

The programme would require a minimum bio content of 10 per cent in biodiesel for the transport sector, and 7 per cent for the industrial sector.

Malaysia has twice delayed the implementation of higher biodiesel mandates this year. An email seen by Reuters last mentioned the programme would be implemented on Dec 1.
