Biofuel Trade Mission to Brazil Planned for End of September

Leading biofuels advocates from the U.S. and Brazil have announced a first-of-its-kind joint trade mission to improve and enhance biofuels trade. The mission is the product of a partnership between the Renewable Fuels Association, Brazilian Sugarcane Industry Association and the Advanced Biofuel Association. The trade mission - which will be held September 30th through October 2nd - will target the Brazilian cities of Sao Paulo and Recife. In an effort to enhance bilateral relationships and enhance trade opportunities - the mission will introduce importers and exporters of biofuel and biofuel technology. The Brazil-U.S. Business Council - which is part of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce - is helping to administer the matchmaking mission as part of its Export Green Initiative. The initiative was created to promote U.S. exports of renewable and green commodities and technologies. As world leaders in biofuel production and trade - RFA President and CEO Bob Dinneen says the U.S. and Brazil have a unique ability to promote and support biofuel demand around the globe. He says this trade mission is an important first step in developing a better trade relationship with Brazil, exploring new trade opportunities between our two nations and expanding ways to work to open new markets.

Approximately 15 companies will be selected for the mission. More information about the mission - and how to apply - is available online. Visit www dot brazilcouncil dot org slash events (www.brazilcouncil.org/events) and click on the link for the Export Green Trade Mission: Biofuels in Brazil.
