Umoe Bioenergy was one of the first mills in Brasil to receive an Environmental certificate from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the autumn of 2010. Out of 400 sugar mills only five mills were granted the license which is required to be able to export to the USA. We are proud to be able to fulfill the strict criteria that EPA set out in terms of safety, environmentally friendly production and no direct deforestation in our fields. EPA has also classified sugar ethanol as an Advanced low carbon renewable biofuel.
