South America: biodiesel blend rate 2020, by country

As of March 2020, the mandated biodiesel blend rate in Brazil amounted to 12 percent, an increase from 11 percent previously established.
In Colombia, the blend rate was 10 percent (with the exception of three departments, where the blend was two percent). That year, attempts to increase the mandated blend to twelve percent were met with strong opposition due to the abrupt character of implementation, which led to a reverse to the original limit.
In Peru, the mandated blend has remained stable at five percent since 2012, while in Paraguay, the rate was increased in January 2019 from one to two percent. The country expects to increase the blend rate step-wise, to reach five percent within the next five years.
