This section presents a brief comparative analysis of the Mexican regulatory and policy framework in the context of the biofuel laws and regulations that have been approved and are being implemented in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Honduras, Paraguay and Peru. For a more complete discussion on this topic, see Masera et al. (2011).
The comparative analysis considers the following elements of the relevant laws:
purpose and objectives;
policy framework for promotion and development, and market promotion;
mandatory fuel requirements (blends and biofuel use); and
elaboration and enforcement of additional rules or standards to complement the regulation.
