Abengoa to develop ethanol plant in Brazil

EBR Staff Writer Published 13 January 2012

Spain-based Abengoa has been selected by the Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES) and FINEP to develop a second generation ethanol plant in Brazil.

The plant will utilize ethanol technology to produce ethanol from sugar cane biomass.

The project will enable Abengoa to produce bioethanol and biobutanol from sugar cane straw and bagasse.

Abengoa will be responsible for implementing the technology required for the project.

In addition, it will also undertake the engineering work to develop a plant with the capacity to generate 100 million liters of ethanol per annum.

Abengoa applies innovative technology solutions for sustainable development in the energy and environment sectors.

The project is part of the Industrial Innovation Program for the Sugar Energy Sector (PAISS).

FINEP is the promotion and investment agency for studies and projects.
