Workers in biofuels field

We are building our capacity in today’s biofuels and working to make them more sustainable. We have moved into the large-scale production of biofuels through Raízen, a joint venture to produce biofuels from sugar cane in Brazil. With annual production capacity of over 2 billion litres – expected to double by 2015 – Raízen is one of the world’s largest biofuels producers. We are also developing advanced biofuels from non-food sources and using new conversion process: these have the potential to offer fewer CO2 emissions and can be blended in higher proportions with petrol and diesel than today’s biofuels.
