The National Energy Policy Council (CNPE) approved a resolution that maintains the mandatory content of biodiesel in diesel oil. The objective is to avoid the increase in the price of diesel for the final consumer, according to the Special Secretariat for Productivity and Competitiveness of the Ministry of Economy.

According to the ministry, the estimate is that maintaining the mandatory percentage of biodiesel addition of 10% (B10) to diesel oil in the period would avoid, on average, a price increase of R$ 0.12.

The proposal – sent through the technical note on November 17, 2021 – presents an analysis of the current situation, with the increase in commodity prices and the corresponding increase in the cost structure that has caused an increase in the price of automotive fuels.
