Among biofuels, sugarcane ethanol has the world’s lowest carbon footprint.
In Brazil, the mixture of ethanol in gasoline is mandated by law and, since 2015, stands at 27% (E27).
Ethanol is a national pride for its energy efficiency, its production chain sustainability and job and income generation.
Since flex vehicle technology was launched, ethanol use has prevented the emission of 515 million tons of CO2eq into the atmosphere.

To achieve a similar CO2 savings, you would need to plant almost
4 billion trees
over 20 years.
In line with commitments made at the UN Climate Conference (COP21), Brazil launched a public policy focusing on the decarbonisation of the transport matrix, named RenovaBio.
By 2030 RenovaBio will lead to a reduction of over 10% of greenhouse gas (GHG) emission within the Brazilian transport energy matrix, contributing significantly to the NDC total reduction of 43% of GHG emissions.
