The article focuses on the history of the biofuels program in Brazil and the basic laws enacted to put the program in place. The first biofuel program of Brazil, the National Alcohol Program in 1973, is discussed as well as the National Program on Biodiesel Production and Usage (PNPB) in 2005. It concludes that on the historical perspective, the Brazilian biodiesel programs are basically made in reaction to the global oil price increases.
