For the RenovaBio, the strategic guidelines were approved and a Working Group was set up with the mission to evaluate and elaborate proposals for normative revisions necessary for the implementation of the Program. The Ethanol and Biodiesel Supply Monitoring Committees were also created to systematically monitor and evaluate the market for these biofuels.


The discussions also debated the possible anticipation for March 2018 of the blend of biodiesel and diesel (B10).

The Integrated Technical Committee for the Development of the Fuel Market, Other Petroleum Derivatives and Biofuels - CT-CB, will also be created, with the participation of various government entities, civil society and associations representing the sectors involved.


RenovaBio

The CNPE approved the strategic guidelines that will guide a new policy for the biofuels sector, as an integral part of the RenovaBio Program.
