The RSB welcomed Brazilian Biodiesel and Biojetfuel Union (Ubrabio), as a member in July 2016.The RSB and Ubrabio have a joint membership agreement in order to work together towards the same goal of sustainable biomaterials. Ubrabio is based in Brazil and will be part of the RSB’s Chamber 5: Intergovernmental Organisations (IGOs), governments, and research/academic institutions. “For Ubrabio, certification is an important issue and should match Brazil’s reality. This partnership with the RSB reinforces our commitment to advances in social, environmental and economic aspects and Brazil’s biodiesel quality, whose usage is consolidated for the excellence of quality parameters that are more restrictive than even in the US and European Union,” said Juan Diego Ferrés, Ubrabio’s President.
