Inpasa’s Invests R$2.2 BILLION in mega ethanol factory

Sidrolândia will gain a new corn ethanol factory from the Inpasa group, which should create 2,000 jobs and produce clean, renewable energy. The factory is the group’s second in the state and will have a total investment of R$2.2 billion. Sidrolândia, a city in Mato Grosso do Sul with around 47 thousand inhabitants, will gain a new corn ethanol factory from the Inpasa group, the largest corn-to-ethanol processor in Latin America. The new unit, which should be inaugurated by October this year, should generate 2,000 jobs in the region, in addition to producing clean and renewable fuel, electricity from biomass, and other products derived from corn.

The company also has plants in Mato Grosso (Sinop and Nova Mutum) and in Paraguay (Nova Esperança and San Pedro).

Inpasa is one of the first corn ethanol industries in Brazil, and its distinguishing feature is sustainability and the valorization of local raw materials.

The new factory project received the license for installation last Friday (09/02), in an event attended by Governor Eduardo Riedel (PSDB), the Minister of Planning, Simone Tebet (MDB), Senator Tereza Cristina, and the directors of Inpasa.

On that occasion, the second phase of the work was also launched , which will have a total cost of R$2.2 billion.

The Sidrolândia factory will have an area of ​​170 thousand m² and an annual production capacity of 800 million liters of ethanol, 450 thousand tons of DDGS (source of energy and protein for animal nutrition), 44 thousand tons of corn oil (used in the manufacture of feed and biodiesel), and 400 GWH of electrical energy.

The energy will be generated from burning corn biomass, ensuring a low environmental impact.

Inpasa vice-president, Rafael Ranzolin, stated that the project is advanced and that the company has a special affection for Mato Grosso do Sul.

“We did not expect to be launching the second phase of the work in such a short period of time. We have a special affection for MS”, he declared.

Minister Simone Tebet highlighted that the new factory should generate new jobs, income and dignity for families in Sidrolândia, which today has an economy based on agriculture.

“Employment, income and dignity for families, bringing growth to the city, today is a day to celebrate. Thank the entrepreneurs for believing in this land,” she said.

The Sidrolândia factory is yet another example of how Inpasa is contributing to the advancement of the corn ethanol sector in Brazil, which has proven to be a viable and sustainable alternative for the production of energy and other value-added products.

Governor Eduardo Riedel highlighted the importance of investment for the development of the state and the region.

“Investment like this must be welcomed and embraced by the community and this occurred in Sidrolândia. To welcome these large projects, the State must do its part, with structure and the appropriate conditions for businesspeople to invest,” he said.

The first phase, which began in September last year, has already consumed R$1.2 billion.
