Biofuel is an alternative energy that is considered equivalent to natural fossil fuel. It has been existed and commercialized since decades. However, the implementation of biofuel policy in a country or organization required massive input from various stakeholders. The most important aspect that needs to be considered includes the impact on the environment, ecosystem, economy and biodiversity. Thus, this work presents a review on the major factor of biofuel regulations worldwide, current legislation and target for biofuel production and consumption and finally impact assessment on the biofuel policy on biodiversity specifically on the land requirement. The information and data were collected based on official academic published materials, government official website, relevant publication by the trusted news portals and conference or proceeding materials.
