Brazil Ethanol Summit 2011

Launched originally in 2007 by the Brazilian Sugarcane Industry Association (UNICA), the Ethanol Summit is now one of the world’s top events focused on renewable energies, particularly sugarcane ethanol and the expanding array of sugarcane-derived applications.

In 2011, for the third edition of the event, more than a thousand participants and 120 speakers from all continents will converge at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in São Paulo for 15 panels, four plenary sessions, two major ceremonies, plus a series of parallel events and meetings.

Solutions for the Low Carbon Economy will be the major overall theme of the event, which will lead the discussions well beyond the use of ethanol as a motor fuel to a variety of new trends and uses emerging around the world, for ethanol and sugarcane itself. From the growing use of bioelectricity generated from burning sugarcane bagasse in high efficiency boilers, to the increased use of ethanol in the production of bioplastics and progress in the development of so-called second generation ethanol, advances in flex-fuel technology for motor vehicles and in biotechnology, leading to the production of biohidrocarbonetos from sugarcane, including diesel, gasoline, jet fuel and fine chemicals.


All topics will be discussed and moderated by recognized experts, researchers, investors, leading business executives and government officials from around the world, gathered in the country where the world’s most successful project for the large-scale replacement of a fossil fuel with a renewable option is a reality.

Brazil and Anti-Corruption Legislation

Filed under: compliance programs,OECD — tfoxlaw @ 6:50 am
Tags: , , ,

As one of the world’s largest energy producing countries, many US companies have subsidiaries in Brazil, which are subject to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). Most of these companies have translated versions of the US FCPA compliance program. Such translations often disregard the size, nature, and particularities of Brazilian business, as well as the local risks and legal requirements pertaining to the Brazilian subsidiaries. Although these programs add value to companies, provide more security to investors and avoid reputational damage, aside from other benefits, they are mostly implemented by Brazilian subsidiaries of American companies subject to the FCPA. It is unusual to find a Brazilian company not subject to the FCPA that has a compliance program in place...
