Acelen Renewables in the spotlight in the VISION 2045 documentary series


Acelen Renewables is thrilled to announce its participation in the Reuters VISION 2045 Campaign. VISION 2045 brings together stories from various organizations that drive systemic change through their services and expertise by implementing principles of sustainable action and social impact at the core of their operations.

Acelen Renewables is positioning itself at the forefront of the global energy transition by harnessing the potential of the native Brazilian seed, Macauba. This small but mighty seed is set to revolutionize the biofuels market with its high energy yield, producing up to seven times more oil than soybeans, and its low water and input requirements.


Key Highlights

* Sustainable Fuel Production: Starting in 2026, Acelen Renewables aims to produce over 1 billion liters of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) and Renewable Diesel (HVO) annually, reducing CO2 emissions by 80% throughout the production chain.

* Global Presentation at COP28: Introduced to the world stage at COP28, Acelen Renewables is part of Mubadala Capital, a global asset management company based in Abu Dhabi, UAE, dedicated to the global energy transition.


Economic and Social Impact

With an initial investment of 12 billion reais, Acelen Renewables expects a positive economic impact of 85 billion reais by 2035, the creation of 90,000 new jobs, and the strengthening of family farming. The project envisions the cultivation of Macauba on 200,000 hectares of degraded land in Brazil, specifically in the states of Bahia and Minas Gerais.


CEO Statement

“We are going to produce the fuel of the future in Brazil, in a fully sustainable project: economically, socially, and environmentally. I am very happy to say that Acelen Renewables has a project with the potential to lead the global energy transition,” says Luiz de Mendonça, CEO of Acelen Renewables.


Innovation and Technology

Acelen Renewables will establish an **Agroindustrial Innovation and Technology Center (CITA)** in Minas Gerais to produce high-quality seeds and seedlings. Refining will take place at a new biorefinery in Bahia, which will also host an innovation hub.


Strategic Partnerships

“We work in an integrative way, leading and opening new paths to bring a sustainable and viable energy alternative to the world. We are creating an ecosystem with agricultural solutions involving research institutions, universities, and innovation hubs, both national and international, to advance agribusiness,” says Marcelo Cordaro, COO of Acelen Renewables.



This pioneering project is set to make Acelen Renewables one of the world’s leading biofuel producers, driving the energy transition and generating significant economic, social, and environmental benefits.
