A joint venture of Cosan and Shell, Raízen is Brazil’s fourth-largest company by revenue, Brazil’s second-largest fuel distribution company, a leading manufacturer of sugarcane ethanol in Brazil and the largest individual sugar exporter in the global market.

B2B: we serve companies in various segments – cargo and passenger transportation, agriculture, mining, railway and industrial – and we invest in tools and fleet control to ensure intelligent management and integrated solutions for our customers.
Aviation: we supply the main airlines in the country’s airports with the quality and excellence of Shell and Shell Aeroclass brands.

- Crushing capacity of 73 million tons of sugarcane in 26 mills
- Production exceeds 4.0 million tons of sugar and over 2.0 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.
