Boeing, Embraer, and Sao Paulo Research Foundation to lead aviation biofuels program in Brazil

  • 07-Nov-2011 02:59 EST

Boeing, Embraer, and the Sao Paulo State Research Foundation (FAPESP) announced plans to collaborate on long-term aviation biofuels-related research and development. Boeing, Embraer, and FAPESP are leading the development of a detailed report outlining the opportunities and challenges of creating a cost-effective, bio-derived, and sustainable jet-fuel production and distribution industry in Brazil. When completed in late 2012, the report, which will include a technology and sustainability roadmap, will be made public. The study will be guided by a series of public workshops during 2012 with input from a range of stakeholders, as well as a strategic advisory board. Members will include airlines, fuel producers and suppliers, environmental experts, community groups, and government agencies. The study will frame the creation of a sustainable aviation biofuels research center in Brazil.
