biofuel/biodiesel are amongst the ways suggested to reduce dependency on crude oils. example of biodiesel 'ingredients' would be sugar. i suspected the previous round of sugar shortage is due sugar being bought up by "industrial players" involved in biofuel/biodiesel industry. what would the effects be for malaysia? will there be a trade off for biofuel/biodiesel? or will there be a win-win situation? or will there be constant shortages of sugar or other 'ingredients' in the near future when biofuel/biodiesel takes off?
