The Expansion of Bioenergy in Malaysia
Bioenergy is poised to increase the current 10% and provide around 25% of the world’s energy supplies by the year 2050. However, there are major considerations than need to be taken when the topic of bioenergy is presented. The first and foremost is the environmental impact, specifically when discussing palm oil. Deforestation is a major concern and can often result in undermining the entire sustainable energy process. For Malaysia to accomplish their goal of sustainable energy through the use of palm oil bioenergy, serious policies and procedures will need to be set in place. Certification and best practices are a priority to ensure that there is a positive impact on both environmental and social situations so that they can establish themselves as a sustainable biofuel marketplace.

Never knew there was that much palm oil produced and used around the world, but good to know that in a country that is responsible for all of this production, they are thinking along with correct environmental lines when talking about energy choices. Communities around the world are starting to realize that they need to take mother nature into consideration, before they proceed down a path to bring low carbon footprints.August 11th, 2013 at 11:08 am
Just watched a program last night about a company that is cutting down all of the old trees in Louisiana for biomass production and leaving the area sparse and deforested. They are proclaiming that their product brings lower carbon emissions, while they deplete nature. Sometimes, there is a wrong way to do things, but companies are using ecology as a front, just to make money.August 10th, 2013 at 1:24 pm
If anyone has read about the deforestation around the world, it is becoming more and more of a serious problem. We are cutting down not only tropical forests but plant life in general, for the purpose of growing food and crops that are not offering any sustainability. Malaysia is making a smart decision towards their energy options and keeping the environment as a priority.August 9th, 2013 at 9:36 am
