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). Braziliam ethanol is produced from sugarcane, a crop that since its introduction in the country, has expanded from the North-Northeast Region to the Center-Southeast, particularly into the Cerrado region, the country's second largest biome.
