WE ARE ALWAYS COMMITTED TO SAFETY, ETHICS, AND SUSTAINABILITY
At our industrial plants, we produce renewable energy, such as ethanol and bioelectricity, which are fundamental for a more sustainable future.
Ethanol and bioelectricity emit less Greenhouse Gases (GHG), which creates opportunities for active participation in the low-carbon economy. This is an important move for the climate change scenario.
Ethanol produced from sugarcane leads to, on average, 90% less greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions compared to Brazilian gasoline. It is one of the great alternatives for the biofuel industry. This product also shows the versatility of sugarcane.
It is possible to create different types of ethanol from the same raw material: both for fuel (anhydrous ethanol mixed with gasoline and hydrated ethanol, fueled directly in vehicle tanks) and for other purposes, such as conversion into green plastic, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and beverages.
We rely on a broad structure logistics to store and transport the ethanol, that we sell to many different regions of the country.
Tank storage on the plants add up to 700,000 cubic meters of fuel capacity, 120,000 cubic meters in the Opla terminal, in Paulínia (SP), and another 15,000 cubic meters at the Port of Santos.
Our capacity to produce 1.7 million m³ of ethanol per year, could fill the tanks of all cars in Brazil (37 million vehicles) at once.
With the cogeneration of energy, we supply our 11 agro-industrial units and still sell the surplus energy to the Brazilian National Interconnected System network, complementing the hydroelectric system. The peak of our generation happens during the low rain season, increasing the country’s energy security.
The bioelectricity generated from sugarcane is the fourth most important source of energy of the Brazilian electricity matrix.
We can export up to 1,4 thousand GWh of energy, which could provide electricity to a city with 530,000 inhabitants.
