EPE Launches the Fact Sheet on Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF)

​The Fact Sheet onSustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) has as its main aim to provide relevant information on this subject, with an overview and fundamental concepts, in a visual and synthetic way. According to the international agreements signed by Brazil, from 2027 onwards, the country should use alternatives to reduce carbon emission levels in the aviation sector. This document indicates the importance of sustainable aviation fuels, which are taking more importance around the world, so that this sector can achieve, in the future, the established targets. Here are presented the characterization of SAFs, the authorized production routes in Brazil, the produced volumes worldwide of this fuel up to now, as well as a timeline that demonstrates the most important actions related to the theme.
