This research paper investigates available options for implementing clean development mechanism (CDM) project inSarawak state, Malaysia. To investigate economic feasibility, data was collected using survey and field research methods.Also, economic analysis was estimated using net present value (NPV), internal rate of return (IRR) and payback period(PBP) during the 30 years CDM: afforestation and reforestation periods. The result of economic analysis indicated that,the payback period was estimated at 9 years with 18 percent of internal rate of return (IRR). This study also highlightedthat CDM biomass supply project have a lot of challenges due to the reduction and exclusion of bio-Solid RecoveredFuel (SRF), supply and demand scenario, and impact of restriction of illegal logging in Malaysia. This study resultsdemonstrate the methodology and guideline for future CDM investment and projects.
