Embraer Raizen LoI SAF

Razen, a prominent bioenergy firm, and Embraer have signed a Letter of Intent to foster sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production ecosystem.

Embraer will likely become the first aircraft manufacturer to utilise SAF provided by Razen.

Carlos Alberto Griner, Vice President of People, ESG and Communications at Embraer, said: 

"SAF plays a key role in reducing aviation emissions in the short and medium term. Therefore, this agreement aims to stimulate the growth and sustainability of the value chain as a whole. ESG is one of the pillars of our strategic plan, and we are looking at every opportunity to accelerate the reduction of our carbon emissions.”

The movement also reinforces Raízen's commitment to the development and research of sustainable fuels for sectors that are mobilising to seek solutions to their carbon footprint reduction challenges.

Razen is anticipated to assist Embraer in achieving its objective of consuming 100 per cent of its fuel in Brazil from SAF mixes by 2030.

Antonio Cardoso, Vice President of Marketing and Services at Raízen, said: 

"As an integrated energy company, Raízen has challenging goals as we intend to expand the offer of 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. 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.”
