Brazilian Energy production statistics
Ethanol is produced from sugarcane and as such classifies as a biofuel. Ethanol can power cars with up to 100% less harmful emissions, which at a time when we are working on solutions for a healthier planet is hugely advantageous.
We rely on electricity for almost everything we do in modern society. Green energy sources are rapidly replacing fossil fuels, and in Brazil there is a growing market for electricity created as a by-product of sugar and ethanol. Using bagasse, which is created by cane crushing, electricity can be created in a way that promotes a circular economy.
Biomass is a renewable energy source on the rise partly because the organic materials that it is derived from can be easily replaced. We procure biomass from a range of plants including cassava, sugar cane and wood pellets. Our experience in Southeast Asia and Brazil, two regions with rich supplies of biomass, put us in a strategic position to facilitate biomass trades.
