Jean Paul Prates, the president of Petrobras, took part in the opening of the seminar “Neo-industrialization and the Brazilian Energy Transition”, this Wednesday morning (11/22), in Rio de Janeiro. Aloizio Mercadante, the President of BNDES, and Eduardo Bartolomeo, the President of Vale, were also present to open the event.
 
In his speech, Jean Paul Prates highlighted the current challenges involved in ensuring Petrobras and the country could lead the global energy transition. He referenced projects, such as the co-processing of biofuels at the company's refineries, offshore wind farms and green hydrogen.
 
“The energy transition is not about making a clean break; it is a process over several decades that will transform, not just Petrobras, but society as a whole. Therefore, we need to remain focused on our business and work towards this ecological transition. We have achieved several records in the last seven months, but we are fully immersed already in the decarbonization of our processes and changing the energy matrix. Petrobras has the potential to show Brazil how to lead on this transformation”, added Prates.
 
The Seminar was attended by officials, experts and industry representatives, who discussed topics that are fundamental to the country's development, such as the role of green hydrogen in the decarbonization of industry, and the challenges and opportunities of neo-industrialization.
