Malaysian wood pellet producers see opportunity to serve emerging Asian demand for industrial fuel [From the web]

PUTRAJAYA, MALAYSIA, Oct. 9, 2013 (Local News) - Malaysia aims to capture a bigger slice of the growing demand for biomass pellets in Asia driven by renewable energy policies in South Korea, Japan and China.

Chief Executive Officer of Agensi Inovasi Malaysia, Mark Rozario, said the country has an advantage in terms of logistics and cost of transportation, which were usually dominated by pellet producers from US and Europe.

"We want to grab this opportunity and with the establishment of the Pellet Association of Malaysia (PAM) earlier, we have united the manufacturers on issues such as quality, pricing and volumes," he told reporters after the briefing on the progress of the National Biomass Strategy 2020 here today.
