Keywords: Brazilian National Program of Biodiesel

ABSTRACT
In a legal framework that must respect the ecologic balance, the economic viability, social inclusion and culture preservation, this study focuses on the efficiency of the Brazilian National Program of Biodiesel. The context shown below is the program´s capability of developing isolated regions of the country characterized by lack of conventional energy policies, rich culture aspects, poverty and the possibility of producing energy by its natural resources and species. The results demonstrate a large legal framework already constructed and quantifiable evolution in regional fuel production, although the confusing legal system and the still poor economic incentives diminish the efficiency of the program.
