About the event

A technical Seminar denominated “Sustainable Mobility: Ethanol Talks – India” is being jointly organized by ISMA (Indian Sugar Mills Association), UNICA (Brazilian Sugarcane Industry Association), APLA (Brazil´s Ethanol Cluster), The Brazilian Government Ministry of External Relations, Division for Energy Progress (MRE/DEN) and Apex-Brasil (Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency).

The goal of the seminar is to promote ethanol as a modern and sustainable option for mobility, capable of generating immediate positive impacts on energy security, health, reduction of local air pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions. With the Seminar, we hope to bridge possible knowledge gaps and offer cooperation, transferring the Brazilian experience on ethanol and working with counterparts in India to identify where and how this experience would be applicable, or adapted when necessary.

The Seminar is an opportunity to bring together all those who are concerned with energy security, health and environmental quality, and your presence will be a great contribution to this objective.
