Reuse of waste as source energy remains sustainable energy source for humanity. The processing of waste provide fuels for electricity, heat generation, and transportation fuels environmental advantages in term of energy production that lead to vast reduction in the waste stream, production of valuable byproducts, wasteland reduction and the killing of the pathogens and bacteria that cause disease as well as provision of reliability for food safety and mitigation go Green House Gas release..

Recent global political will has provided spill in Malaysia policy to pursue production of renewable energy of modest percentage increase of 20 percent by 2020. This paper present the status of biomass, constrain and the way forward in Malaysia.
