Embraer and Raízen have signed a Letter of Intent with a commitment to stimulate the development of the sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production eco-system, reinforcing the sustainability agenda of both companies.
Among all intentions, Embraer will become the first aircraft manufacturer to use (SAF) that may be distributed by Raízen, a global leader in bio-energy. This initiative benefits the air transport industry worldwide and the use of this technology is a fundamental part of Embraer’s strategy to neutralize the carbon footprint of its operations by 2040 as more than 60% of emissions in the company’s operations (scope 1) arise from the use of aviation fuel in tests and production flights.
“As an integrated energy company, Raízen has challenging goals as we intend to expand the offer renewable energy and fuel sources to the market by 80% and make this increase as efficient as possible in our production process to help produce the impact on our customers,” said Antonio Cardoso, Vice President of Marketing and Services at Raízen. “As the largest sugarcane ethanol producer in the world, it is only natural that we are looking at a possible supply of SAF. This partnership with Embraer, a global reference, reinforces the sustainability agenda and expansion of the company’s portfolio.”
The expectation is that Raízen will help Embraer reach the goal of having SAF blends representing 100% of its fuel consumption in Brazil by 2030.Email Post to a Friend
