The goal of the Sustainable Aviation Biofuels for Brazil (SABB) project was to carry out a comprehensive assessment of challenges and opportunities for implementing an aviation biofuels industry in Brazil, taking into account technological, economic and sustainability aspects.
The objective were:
The project relied on a consensus based approach to identify action plan priorities to promote the use of sustainable biofuels in aviation. The project methodology used a series of workshop to stimulate discussions and gather information that were analysed to develop scenario based on the likelihood of commercial feasibility in 2015-20122 while considering also the 2050 timeframe.
The project produced its final report in June 2013, including the outcomes of the workshops, the conclusion of the projects and an action plan with recommendations to develop an aviation biofuel industry in Brazil.
