Sugarcane has emerged as an important alternative for meeting those needs. This powerful plant is grown in more than 100 countries and holds the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, diversify energy supplies and create jobs.

and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil) developed this web site to serve as a global informati on hub on sugarcane products and their economic, environmental and social benefits around the world.
