- Crushing capacity of 73 million tons of sugarcane in 26 mills
- Production of 3.8 million tons of sugar and over 2.5 billion liters of ethanol/year
- 1 GW of installed capacity of electricity produced from sugarcane bagasse
Sugar: we are the largest individual exporter of the product, and we have achieved a prominent position in the development of Very High Polarization (VHP) sugar and the production of organic and liquid sugar.
Ethanol: our product is generated from sugarcane, and is used in fuel, perfumes, beverages, paints, chemicals and plastics. We are also one of the first Brazilian companies to engage in commercial-scale production of ethanol using Second-Generation Ethanol (E2G), a competitive solution to meet a growing demand for biofuel in Brazil and worldwide.
Bioenergy: sugarcane byproducts are also the raw material for generating bioelectricity, an alternative for Brazil’s energy sector. The reuse of biomass (sugarcane bagasse and straw) for this purpose reduces fossil-fuel CO² emissions in Brazil.
