Global leaders are searching for clean, renewable options to provide energy and reduce petroleum use.

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.


The brazilian sugarcane industry association (unica)

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.

This website is part of a larger partnership between UNICA and Apex-Brasil that aims to promote the benefits of Brazilian sugarcane ethanol in North America, Europe and Asia.

Activities covered by this agreement include participation in international conferences, economic and regulatory intelligence studies, marketing activities, and public relations strategies targeted at key stakeholders.



We must widely adopt every sustainable solution available to reduce emissions. Sustainable biofuels emit up to 90% less CO2 than fossil fuels. What are we waiting for? UNICA will discuss this issue at an event hosted by @BrazilEmbassyUK & @IrishBioenergy: https://t.co/Qu5gCMewOS
Did you know transport accounts for 24% of Europe’s direct CO2 emissions from fuel combustion? Today UNICA will explain how sustainable biofuels, such as #ethanol, could change this. Make sure to tune in! https://t.co/z8vctqyxED
A recent study by @EUEnvironment reveals air pollution in Europe still accounts for 307,000 premature deaths a year. Using ethanol in transport can help change this by reducing inhalable particles by 98%. https://t.co/FyB2cLIduM
