Biodiesel production grew by almost 9% in the country in 2020

The sector’s revenues reached R$26.2 billion ($5 bn), an increase of almost 68% over the previous year. According to the Ministry, 98.4% of the volume sold had the Social Biofuel Seal, which requires the inclusion of family farmers in the production chain. In ethanol, there was a drop in the volume commercialised due to the pandemic. But corn ethanol production grew more than 84% in 2020, to 2.4 billion litres.
