Brazil is one of the world's leadinh ethanol producer, primarly from sugarcane, and was responsable for almost half of the world's sugarcane production in 2012 (Brazil 2013). The sygar-energy sector in Brazil accounts for approximately 2% of the country's Gross Domestic Produc (Neves, Trombin, Consoli, 2011).
