Description

​ABRABA was created as a forum to discuss the various aspects of developing sustainable aeronautical biofuels driven by the growing demand to meet the requirements for reducing greenhouse gas emissions in aviation as well as to provide support for Brazil's energy security.

The goal is to develop renewable fuels with equivalent levels of quality, safety of use, cost, and adequate production capacity compared to fossil fuels.

The objectives are made possible through partnerships with public policy makers and the participants involved in the aviation biofuels segment.
