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.
