Carbone Neutre
Entre mai 2006 et avril 2007, Native a effectue un bilan des émissions de gaz a effet de serre (GES) de la filière biologique de l'Usine de Sao Francisco (UFRA). Cette évaluation a été réalisée selon le protocole GHG - modèle international pour mesurer les émissions - en considérant les effets de la culture de la canne et la production de sucre et d'alcool a l'usine. Compte-tenu qu'une partie de cette production est destinée a l'exportation, l'énergie nécessaire pour le transport de ces marchandises vers leur destination finale (USA, Europe, Japon) a également été prise en compte.

Les quantités d'émissions trouvées pour UFRA sont plus basses que les niveaux moyens d'émissions de l'industrie de la canne a sucre, du fait de ses méthodes de production biologiques. Comparée a la production de sucre a partir de la betterave en Europe ou au Japon, ou encore a la production de sucre a partir de la betterave ou du mais aux Etats-Unis, les écarts sont encore plus nets, car ces méthodes de production fonctionnent a partir d'énergies fossiles alors que UFRA utilise de l'énergie a base de bagasse de canne a sucre.

Reduction of the Atmospheric Emissions

Between May 2006 and April 2007, Native conducted the greenhouse gas (GHG) emission inventory for the organic sugarcane fields of the São Francisco Sugarmill (UFRA). This was based on the international GHG Protocol model used to quantify emissions. The evaluation included everything from sugarcane farming and input consumption to the industrial sugar and ethanol production stage at the plant. Since part of these products is earmarked for the export market, also considered were the energy demands involved in transportation to the port of destination.

The figures recorded for UFRA are below the average industry emissions values because of the organic production methods. When compared to production in Europe or Japan, from sugar beets, or in the USA, from corn and sugar beet, there are even more advantages. This is because of production methods that use energy produced by burning of fossil fuels, while at UFRA, the energy comes from burning sugarcane bagasse.

The inventory is an important tool to support our actions in pursuit of reducing GHG emissions and, as such, to do our part to fight global warming, which threatens the survival of humanity. Native's activities represent a carbon “sink”, making the company carbon neutral.
