Contrarily to biodiesel, ethanol is being processed since 1975 which makes Brazil the second-largest producer of transport fuels over a 30-year period. The abundance of land and proper climate conditions for sugar cane production and the possibility of transport subsidies ensuring full ethanol distribution within the country are important factors for the evolution of such industry. Several reasons have been adopted in favour of governmental support for biofuels in Brazil. These vary from purely economic-profit oriented ones to those including environmental concerns, energy security and rural development.

The sugar market played a primary role in driving the ethanol growth within and outside the country. g. 20, Elobeid and Tokgoz, 2008) and the international volatility of sugar prices pushed Brazilian farmers toward ethanol production. Productivity of the ethanol sector also rose substantially to more than 100% (Moreira, 2006) during the 25 years period from 1975 to 2000. The electricity and heat production industry were also fundamental to boosting biofuels production as these served both the internal and foreign markets with using by-products from sugar cane.

5% of total fuel use in the transport sector from 2010. On average, tax rates on biodiesel and ethanol are currently 50% lower than those on diesel and gasoline. Likewise in the United States similar measures are used to support the biofuels chain (including consumption). These can be found in the form of tax incentives for fuel-switching engine cars or quality standards on fuels. g. biomass/cellulose-based biofuels), sustaining numerous projects. 264/l for biodiesel) and import tariffs are mainly used as instruments for biofuels support across states.
