Brazil’s 2 percent biodiesel mandate is in effect

From 01 January 2008 all diesel sold in Brazil is a 2 percent biodiesel blend. In Brazil, the leading biodiesel feedstocks are sunflower, soya, jatropha, palm and castor oils. Brazil wants to have a mandatory 5 percent biodiesel blend in place by 2013.

Brazil has an interesting social fuel program that benefits an estimated 90,000 families. Read Brazil’s biodiesel mandate comes into effect – data show success of ‘Social Fuel Program’ for more information.
