In the context of the national production of new sources of energy from biomass, it is important to study and discuss the process of implementation of the National Program for Production and Use of Biodiesel in Brazil (PNPB) and the social productive relationship of the land. Therefore we analyzed how the social fuel seal was formulated in the scope of the PNPB in becoming articulated to foster the creation of ties that brings formation to new affiliations in the production of capital agrochemical financial sectors, the state and the farmers. The Social Fuel Seal has been placed as an instrument of articulation in the process of building productive relationships between farmers and industries producing biodiesel, for example, agents historically antagonistic for land space. This tangled web of sociopolitical relation involves circumstances such as of subordination of income.
