Abstract: A comparative analysis of the laws and regulations pertaining to the production and consumption of biofuels in Latin America is presented. The study involved field visits to biofuel farms in the region, interviews with key actors, both in the public and the private sector, in Honduras and El Salvador, and conferences and workshops, both at national and international level. Important aspects dealt with by most legislative regimes include tax incentives for the promotion of biofuel production and biofuel mix targets. Some take into account the involvement of small and medium enterprises and farms.
