En este documento de trabajo se realiza una síntesis de las características de los principales biocombustibles (biodiesel y etanol) y sus etapas de producción. Asimismo, se presenta un resumen del análisis del ciclo de vida que mide finalmente el balance energético de los biocombustibles realizado por Bruinsma (2009) para el caso de la palma y la jatropha. Se discuten posteriormente las principales características del mercado internacional de biocombustibles incluyendo los porcentajes mínimos en la participación de mercado, la evolución del consumo, la evolución de la oferta, los principales agentes en Europa y América Latina así como la evolución de los precios internacionales y las tendencias que organismos internacionales han identificado. Luego se analiza el mercado local de biocombustibles donde se realiza una síntesis del marco legal e institucional, la producción nacional, la demanda, comercio internacional, los costos de producción. Posteriormente, se analizan los riesgos y retos del mercado de biocombustibles incluyendo las barreras al comercio internacional, los problemas que se han identificado en el desarrollo de los biocombustibles y las disyuntivas implícitas en su promoción, todo ello bajo una mirada que enfatiza las lecciones de política para el Perú.
