The article focuses on evolution of making use of ethanol as a substitute to gasoline for its utilization as a fuel for motor-vehicles in Brazil. It discusses the environmental issues concerning biofuels and its role in minimizing the effect of pollution. It explores the development of ethanol laws and regulation and analyzes its application to ethanol production in Brazil. It reflects the challenges faced by the U.S. in application of the Brazilian model of biofuel production.
