The Biofuels Industrial Strategy, which falls under the Petroleum Products Act, mandates biofuel blending of 2%–10% for bioethanol and a minimum of 5% for biodiesel from 2015 onwards.

Biofuels Regulatory Framework (BRF) of February 2020 implements the Biofuels Industrial Strategy. Uncertainty remains on the socio-economic benefits to be achieved through the BRF, the carbon-intensity of South African biofuels, and the actual uptake of 1st and 2nd generation biofuels over time.
