  1. 1. THE LARGEST BRAZILIAN BIODIESEL COMPANY
  2. 2. SUSTAINABILITY IN PRACTICEA company will only contribute to sustainable development if it is ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY RESPECT TO THE ENVIRONMENT AND SOCIAL RESPONSABILITY SHOULD BE AN ASSET AND NOT A LIABILITY SOCIALLY ECONOMICALLY RESPONSIBLE EFFICIENT 2
  3. 3. BIODIESEL AND THE ENVIRONMENT is renewable and a perfect sustainable in the substitute for mineral fuels long term is green when made from plants absorb carbon perennial oil-bearing plants dioxide while growing carbonBIODIESEL reduces greenhouse gas emissions of sulphur particulates less risk to the is biodegradable environment is more ecofriendly when the biomass is used in the replaces heating fuels production process 3
  4. 4. BIOFUELS AND THE ENVIRONMENTThe sustainability of different biofuels can only be evaluated by comparingtheir energy balances, that is, the relation between the renewable energy generated and the fossil materials used in the production process ENERGY BALANCE 8.3 8 6 3.2 4 3.0 1.3 1.9 1.9 2 0 Corn Beet Sugar Soybean Rapeseed Sunflower US EU Cane US EU EU Brazil Ethanol Biodiesel 4
  5. 5. BRASIL ECODIESEL AND THE ENVIRONMENT Brasil Ecodiesel hired EcoSecurities* to determine the energy balance of biodiesel made from castor oil in our plant in Iraquara, Bahia Major assumptions * Plantation by family farmers with manual sowing and harvesting * Average size of properties: 6 ha (14.8 acres) * Average production: 600 kg/ha per year (243 kg/acre ) * By-products (castor seed cake and glycerin) used to generate heat during the production process ENERGY BALANCE = 10.5 BRASIL ECODIESEL CAN PRODUCE THE “GREENEST” BIOFUEL IN THE WORLD*EcoSecurities is a leading company in the field of carbon credits, with headquarters in London. Thefigure for the energy balance is preliminary, pending final auditing by an independent expert. 5
  6. 6. BRASIL ECODIESEL AND THE ENVIRONMENTAdditional advantages * castor planted in semi-arid regions of poor soil and irregular rainfall, land improper for intensive agriculture, no forest cover * abundant availability of unemployed or underemployed work force * castor oil and cake being non edible by humans and animals, no competition between food and fuelFuture perspectives * if and when methanol is replaced by ethanol in the transesterification process, the energy balance of biodiesel made from castor oil should be above 40:1 * an even higher ratio will result from the use of jatropha (pinhão manso) because it is a perennial plant and shows a higher oil productivity per hectare than castor plants 6
  7. 7. BRASIL ECODIESEL AND ECONOMIC EFFICIENCY Vegetable oils diversification Sunflower Soy oil oil Oil industries Family farmers and intensive agriculture Jatropha Curcas Castor oil oil Diversified sourcing of vegetable oilsFamily farmers • mitigates risks and own land • benefits from Brazilian agricultural potential Family farmers 7
  8. 8. BRASIL ECODIESEL AND ECONOMIC EFFICIENCY Vegetable oils diversificationFocus on non edible and high-yield oil crops * better relation between oil and meal/cake * no competition between food and fuel * availability of land * labor intensive – positive social and human development impact SOYA 4,0 SUNFLOWER CASTOR JATROPHA CURCAS 1,51,0 1,0 1,0 1,0 1,0 1,0Oil Meal Oil Meal Oil Cake Oil CakeMarginal Use Production Expansion 8
  9. 9.

  10. 10. BRASIL ECODIESEL AND ECONOMIC EFFICIENCY Geographical diversificationMajor biodiesel producer inBrazil and the only one with a nationwide presence Biodiesel plants: 7 * 4 in operation * 2 pre-operational * 1 in planning Oil Extraction units: 6 * 2 in operation * 1 pre-operational * 3 under construction Farms: 6 (32,000 hectares / 79,000 acres) Storage facilities for vegetable oils and grains: 32 10
  11. 11. BRASIL ECODIESEL AND ECONOMIC EFFICIENCY Integrated Operating Process Oilseeds Vegetable Oil Oil Transesterification BiodieselAgriculture Extraction Oil Market Castor and Sunflower Glycerin Jatropha Cake Meal organic fertilizer animal final user heat generation feedstock heat generation Integrated production structure guarantees vegetable oil supply and mitigates commodity prices/currency fluctuations 11
  12. 12. THE BRAZILIAN BIODIESEL PROGRAM AND SOCIAL INCLUSION* In a pioneering move, the Brazilian Biodiesel Program offered a tax incentive to biodiesel producers using feedstocks planted by family farmers* The maximum rebate is given to biodiesel derived from castor plant (mamona) and palm (dendê) produced by family farmers in the North, Northeast or the semi-arid region* A “Social Fuel Stamp" identifies the biodiesel producers which employ family farmers and are thus eligible to enjoy the tax incentive* Brasil Ecodiesel was the first company to receive the “Social Fuel Stamp" 12
  13. 13. BRASIL ECODIESEL AND SOCIAL INCLUSIONBrasil Ecodiesel performs its social inclusion function in two ways: Establishment of Network of settlements in its contracts with own lands family farmers SOCIAL INCLUSION Brasil Ecodiesel cooperates closely with rural unions at the federal and state levels, cooperatives, NGOs 13
  14. 14. BRASIL ECODIESEL AND SOCIAL INCLUSION Focus on new crops intensive in labor * Assured supply – loyalty programs with feedstock suppliers * Institutional solidity – relationship with rural area organizations Integration Network of Agricultural Communal Production Nucleus Partners• Santa Clara Nucleus, established • ~ 100,000 by the end of 2007 in 2003 76 Regional Offices covering 1,200 Municipalities 76 14
