DC 2015-06-0005 Amending Department Circular No. 2011-02-0001 entitled “”Mandatory Use of Biofuel Blend”” (Amended Guidelines on E-10 Implementation)
Relevant provisions / summary
It was recognized that it was legally impossible to comply with the 2 requirements of the Biofuels Act, namely (1) the minimum of 10% bioethanol blend on gasoline products, and (2) the prohibition on the importation of bioethanol after 2013. A section on Temporary Relaxation of Gasoline Grade was introduced due to the insufficiency of locally-produced bioethanol and to reduce the level of bioethanol importation.
