The Law 11.097 (amending Law 9.478 of 1997) introduced biodiesel in transportation energy mix of Brazil. Under the law and subsequent resolutions by the National Council of Energy Policy (Conselho Nacional de Politica Energética, CNPE) implementing the requirements of the law, the mandated minimum increased from 2% biodiesel by 2008 and 5% by 2013, 5 to 6% in 2014, and then again from 6 to 7% in November 2015. In March 2016, Brazil's House of Representatives approved law 13.263 that plans an increase of the mandatory minimum of biodiesel in diesel fuel by 1 % annually, to reach 10 % by March 2019. On November 9, 2017, the CNPE decided to accelerate the increase to reach 10% by March 2018.
