ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Philippines has introduced its biofuels law, but questions how the government will implement the policy. The first part of the program is the mandatory use of a 1% biodiesel blend using coconut as a feedstock, while a 5% ethanol blend will be introduced by 2009. However, motorists are confused about whether they will have to modify car engines, causing them to pay more for the clearer-burning fuel.
