Brazil Biofuels Market Trends

  • Investments in the commercialization of second-generation ethanol production from biomass: Companies in Brazil are increasingly investing in developing and scaling up production capacities for advanced cellulosic ethanol using waste sugarcane bagasse and straw. For instance, in 2021 GranBio started the first commercial scale second-gen ethanol facility. Raízen also announced investment plans for a cellulosic ethanol plant. The commercialization of cost-effective second-gen technologies can promote transition.
  • Development and adoption of biofuels for aviation and marine transport: Various industry participants in Brazil are working on sustainable biojet fuel and biodiesel production to cater to the growing focus on reducing emissions in the aviation and marine sectors. In 2021, companies like GranBio and Raízen introduced biojet fuel produced from sugarcane. Rising R&D and private investments in producing biokerosene and biodiesel for ships can drive adoption.
  • Focus on enhancing sustainability through improving biofuel feedstock yields: Players are utilizing advanced agricultural technologies like precision farming, biotech seeds, mechanization, and data analytics to improve sugarcane yields and optimize land usage. Sustaining feedstock supply through sustainable farming practices while avoiding ecological impacts is a key focus area. This can enhance productivity and position Brazil as a sustainable biofuels producer.
  • Consolidation activities by major players to enhance scale and operational efficiencies: The Brazil biofuels market has witnessed increasing consolidation, with acquisitions and partnerships between domestic and global energy companies to leverage synergies and integrated supply chains. The Raízen-Biosev acquisition made Raízen the largest bioenergy producer in Brazil. Such consolidation activities help companies enhance economies of scale and efficiency.
