Brazil: Implementation of RenovaBio - Brazil's National Biofuels Policy

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

On January 20, 2021, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro sent newly inaugurated President Biden a letter noting that Brazil has demonstrated its commitment to the Paris Agreement. One example of this commitment is Brazil’s recently implemented National Biofuels Policy, known as RenovaBio. The program is designed to support the country’s commitments formulated at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP21). The USDA Mission in Brazil has made steady efforts to ensure the program’s regulations provide fair treatment for corn-based ethanol, which is often imported from the United States.
