Fixing a distortion with yet another distortion

As reported by The Jakarta Post today, Indonesia's biofuel producers are urging the government to make the use of biofuel mandatory for factories and vehicles.

How can you expect a progress if this kind of thinking persists? I hope the government doesn't approve this silly idea. There is a better way to become more eco-friendly : remove the subsidy on the competing, fossil-based fuels. Biofuel is a good idea. But protection like that asked by the Biofuel Producers Association is not.
