HOUSTON (ICIS)--Brazil’s investment bank (BNDES) will invest Brazilian reais (R) 300m ($130m) in sugarcane researcher Centro de Tecnologia Canavieira’s (CTC) efforts to accelerate projects to increase productivity in agricultural and industrial biotechnology, the BDNES announced on Wednesday.
The bank’s support was approved under a programme that has invested to date R1.57bn to increase sugarcane and ethanol production.
CTC is a leader in Brazil’s sugarcane-to-ethanol industry and has participated in major technological developments since its founding in 1969, the BDNES said in a news release.
