Embraer, the world’s largest manufacturer of commercial jets up to 120 seats, has become the newest member of the Aircraft Fleet Recycling Association (AFRA). The announced was made, today, at AFRA’s Annual Meeting, in Washington, D.C., USA.

Embraer becomes the third leading aircraft manufacturers to link-up with AFRA.

Martin Fraissignes, Executive Director of AFRA, warmly welcomed Embraer into the AFRA fold. “We are delighted that such a prestigious company as Embraer has decided to join us on our journey to develop and promote environmental best practices throughout the field of aircraft dismantling and recycling. AFRA membership further confirms Embraer’s commitment to pushing for the best sustainable practices in our industry.”

For the past five years, AFRA has set industry standards for the safe and sustainable disassembly of end-of-service aircraft, which are of environmental and financial value to the industry. Now, Embraer joins AFRA to promote environmental excellence and sustainable solutions in the field of aircraft dismantling and recycling.

“Embraer’s membership in AFRA will intensify the exchange of experiences regarding recycling and/or the final disposal of aeronautical components, as well as the technical interchange between professionals, in order to incorporate new technologies with the integrated product development process,” said Guilherme de Almeida Freire, Embraer Director, Environmental Strategy and Technology.
