Mr. Clovis Lemes invited by the U.S. Air Reasearch
Lab to Speak on Biofuels Development

The U.S. Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio is an excellence institution conducting advanced studies in biofuels in the USA. The Wright-Patterson Base, through their own lab, and in partnership with the University of Dayton Research Institute conduct studies in ethanol, biodiesel, and biogas, among others.

We were invited and gave an overview in both locations of the status of this sector in Brazil. Read this interview


Ethanol
Brazil began in 1975 to install the first truly national energy program throughout the whole country, a first in the world, demonstrating the feasibility and advanteges of the alternative substitution of a fossil fuel for a renewable and ecological fuel source.

Brazil-Japan Deal
Petrobras started shipping on March 3, 2009 Brazilian alcohol mixed to gasoline for the Japanese market. The mixture has 3% etanol and 87% gasoline. In Brazil, gasoline has 25% alcohol misture, and 27% of the Brazilian cars are equipped with "flex" engines (capable of using both alcohol and gasoline in any ratio, or even solo - gasoline only or alcohol only). Currently, the manufacturers are talking about "tri-fuel", that mixes alcohol, gasoline and natural gas.


The United States
In the U.S., ethanol primary purpose is to serve as an octane extender for gasoline, a clean air additive in the form of an oxygenate, and as an aid in the reduction of America?s dependence on imported oil, thereby reducing our balance of trade. In order to accomplish these tasks in the face of resistance from the oil industry, Congress established an incentive in the form of a tax credit during the mid-1970s designed to encourage the oil industry to blend ethanol. The tax incentive continues today, and was recently extended to 2010.
