Abstract: 

In 2007, the Philippines passed the Biofuels Act of 2006, which requires all gasoline sold in the country in 2008 to contain at least 5% ethanol by volume. The law's objectives are to reduce Philippine dependence on imported fuel, with its erratic price fluctuations, by providing a local supply of alternative and renewable energy. The success of the implementation of this law depends greatly on how well the country's agricultural sector will respond. Because of this, the Department of Agriculture is crafting a feedstock development strategy.
