Passed in 2000
The law introduces the framework for financial mechanisms to stimulate biofuels and other alternative fuels in order to save energy resources and reduce dependence on imports. It aims at reducing environmental impact by using various kinds of waste as raw material for the production of alternative fuels. The law foresees support to develop scientific and technical basis of production of alternative fuels, as well as support of entrepreneurship.

It establishes the amount of ethanol content in gasoline produced and sold: recommended content not less than 5% (by volume) in 2013; mandatory content not less than 5% (by volume) in 2014-2015; and mandatory content of not less than 7% (by volume) from 2016.
