C-c C-e l p     (org-latex-export-to-pdf)

The LaTeX export back-end can use any of these LaTeX engines: ‘pdflatex’, ‘xelatex’, and ‘lualatex’. These engines compile LaTeX files with different compilers, packages, and output options. The LaTeX export back-end finds the compiler version to use from org-latex-compiler variable or the #+LATEX_COMPILER keyword in the Org file. See the docstring for the org-latex-default-packages-alist for loading packages with certain compilers. Also see org-latex-bibtex-compiler to set the bibliography compiler132.



This does not allow setting different bibliography compilers for different files. However, “smart” LaTeX compilation systems, such as ‘latexmk’, can select the correct bibliography compiler.
