Future Fuel Program will have to be approved by the National Congress to come into effect. Proposal integrates government energy transition actions. The federal government presented this Thursday (14) a series of measures to encourage the use of renewable fuels. To come into force, the proposals will have to be approved by the National Congress. ✅Click here to follow the new g1 channel on WhatsApp. ⚠️The old group will be deactivated.

President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT) held a ceremony at Palácio do Planalto to sign the bill that creates the Fuel of the Future program. The text of the proposal, which will begin to be processed by the Chamber of Deputies, was not disclosed during the event. The government wants to create the program as part of efforts to encourage the energy transition in the transport sector. The text will integrate the National Biofuels Policy (RenovaBio), the Rota 2030 Program –aimed at modernizing the automotive sector– and the Brazilian Vehicle Labeling Program (PBE Veicular). In addition to the integration of vehicle energy efficiency policies, the proposal was divided into five axes: National Sustainable Aviation Fuel Program; National Green Diesel Program; Regulation of synthetic fuels; Capture and geological storage of carbon dioxide (CO2); New limits on mixing anhydrous ethanol with gasoline. According to the government, the axis of the program focused on civil aviation encourages the mixture of biofuels with aviation kerosene so that airlines can reduce carbon dioxide emissions by between 1% and 10% between 2027 and 2037. The program intends to include in the mix from traditional petroleum-based diesel to a biofuel of plant origin (sugar cane, soybean oil, macaúba oil, etc.), called green diesel. It will be up to the National Energy Policy Council (CNPE) to define a mandatory percentage for adding green diesel to traditional diesel. The project also intends to increase the mixture of anhydrous ethanol with gasoline, with a minimum level of 22% and a maximum of 30%. Today, this content is between 18% and 27.5%. The government still wants to define two regulatory frameworks, one for synthetic fuels in Brazil, known as e-Fuel and used in combustion engines. The National Agency for Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels (ANP) will be responsible for the topic. Another regulatory framework deals with the capture and geological storage of carbon dioxide (CO2). The idea is to capture greenhouse gases from the atmosphere and inject them into underground reservoirs.
