Brazil and India launch Virtual Center of Excellence to support automotive sector

April 25, 2022 |

In India, bilateral cooperation between Brazil and India for the promotion of ethanol and its blends in the automotive sector will have a Virtual Center of Excellence (CoE). The initiative was launched through the Memorandum of Understanding signed last week in New Delhi by the Sugar Cane Industry Union (UNICA) and the Indian Automobile Manufacturers Association.

“The CoE will be a knowledge portal, a hub that will bring together important and updated information on technological advances, technical standards, regulations, public policies and sustainability related to biomass and bioenergy”, said the president of UNICA, Evandro Gussi .

The document foresees a series of initiatives focused on policies to reduce the levels of greenhouse gas emissions from the use of ethanol. For this, an assessment of the life cycle of the energy source will be used, from cultivation to the product that reaches the consumer. It also establishes the exchange of information on biomass for bioenergy and market access and sustainability of biofuels.
