For Sale - Refinery Sugar and Ethanol + Electricity Co-Generation and complex (including land) – Sao Paulo – Brazil


Refinery Alcohol and Sugar - Brazil


The agri-industry complex that today includes the group of the sugar and ethanol in the west of Sao Paulo.

This is the initial sign of an economic project that has not stopped growing. In 1990 begins in a promising

market for ethanol and the production of ethanol and hydrated to supply the national fleet of vehicles and industries.

The plant has always followed the developments and trends in the industry, with modern equipment, always scaled

to increase production.


Strategy and future plans (new projects)

The approved plan for the unit four years ago by the Director of the company, was to achieve a level of 2.5 million tonne,

which could be consolidated by the end of 2010, but there is a possibility of expansion, with sufficient areas to rise

to 4.0 and to 5.0 million tonne.

There is a Greenfield plant, which has the best location of the state, being near the capital and also the interconnection

of cogeneration. In Terminal Railroad, and land completely flat, predominantly pasture.

There area of 80 hectares acquired for deployment of the industry were planted 1099 hectares of cane for use as seedlings.


In a privileged area of mixed land plans, excellent rain and warm climate, ideal for sugar cane growing is devoted primarily to production of this raw material, manufacturing sugar VHP (Very High Polarizated - Crystal sugar) and refined grain (high purity), Anhydrous Ethanol Fuel, Hydrated, Neutral, Bagasse, Syrups, Filter Cake, Dry Yeast, Concentrated Vinasse and Molasses. The refinery aims to continuously improve its production processes and products through the aggregation of social and environmental values, using the most modern practices of soil conservation and modern equipment in all operations, both in safe and how much others, respecting the regais reserves and permanent preservation areas, making their production processes economically efficient, environmentally sound and socially just..
