As the Brazilian ethanol industry plans to boost ethanol demand abroad and expand markets, industry participants Cosan, SA (CSAN3.SA) (CZZ), Industrial Biotechnology Corporation (OTCPK: IBOT), the EPA, Tom McCain and The Brazilian Sugarcane Industry Association comment on the benefits of sugarcane ethanol.

Brazil is expanding its production and will harvest 12% more cane than last year, with plans to increase ethanol exports 25%. Brazil is currently the second largest producer of ethanol in the world, after the US. According to the Brazilian Sugarcane Industry Association, in 2007 Brazil produced an estimated 487 million metric tons of sugarcane, which yielded 30.6 million tons of sugar and 22 billion liters of ethanol.

Louis Dreyfus Commodities, one of the top three sugar merchandisers and traders in the world, managing more than 2.5 million tons of sugar annually recently announced it $433 million investment to open a new mill in Brazil's Mato Grosso do Sul state.

In a recent Green Investor Podcast, Industrial Biotechnology Corporation (OTCPK: IBOT) CEO Mr. Badolato, discusses plans for its operating subsidiary, Renewable Fuels of America Inc., to import and distribute Brazilian sugarcane ethanol into US and coastal markets.

Mr. Badolato reports, “We are maximizing and leveraging the existing distributors in US and coastal areas that are logistically and economically favorable for a port entry supply. He also comments on the environmental benefits and cost efficiencies related to sugarcane ethanol.”

He also goes on to say, “We are serving the niche of the independent providers with the targeted coastal and port areas and storage facilities.”

Industrial Biotechnology Corporation currently has a joint ventures project and ethanol supply agreement and relationship in place with Cosan, SA.

According to Antonio Henrique Prado, manager for International Business Development of Cosan (CSAN3.SA), a Brazil-based company active in the production of sugar and ethanol, “Currently 10% of Cosan’s revenues are related to ethanol exports. Even though exports are growing, the robust domestic demand for hydrous ethanol (due to the increasing Brazilian flex-fuel fleet) will likely keep exports importance within COSAN’s revenues mix stable in the near term. Over the medium and long-term, exports importance tends to increase.“

He notes Sugarcane ethanol provides several advantages over other feedstocks.

He also goes on to say, “The challenge for the Brazilian ethanol industry is to boost ethanol demand abroad, which can be achieved by clarifying the benefits related to sugarcane ethanol adoption and developing alternative suppliers.

“It is our opinion that the current US import tariff on Brazilian ethanol exports compromises the country’s capacity to diversify its fuels supplier base and ultimately drains resources from American taxpayers.”

Presidential candidate John McCain recently quoted in an interview with a Brazilian newspaper stated, “We made a series of mistakes by not adopting a sustainable energy policy, one of which is the subsidies for corn ethanol, which I warned in Iowa were going to destroy the market, and contribute to inflation. Besides, it is wrong, to tax Brazilian-made sugarcane ethanol, “which is much more efficient than corn ethanol.”

EPA Administrator Stephen L. Johnson recently announced the decision to deny a request submitted by the State of Texas to reduce the nationwide Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS). As a result, the required total volume of renewable fuels, such as ethanol and biodiesel, mandated by law to be blended into the fuel supply will remain at 9 billion gallons in 2008 and 11.1 billion gallons in 2009.

“After reviewing the facts, it was clear this request did not meet the criteria in the law,” said Stephen L. Johnson. “The RFS remains an important tool in our ongoing efforts to reduce America’s greenhouse gas emissions and lessen our dependence on foreign oil, in aggressive yet practical ways.”

Following EPA news, The Brazilian Sugarcane Industry Association representative in Washington, Joel Velasco, recently commented, "The next step -- and one that Congress has yet to take -- is to reduce the distortive tariff on imported ethanol. This one-of-a-kind tax on a clean energy alternative serves only to punish American drivers by artificially inflating the price of gasoline at the pump.”
