4 Voorwoord Daar gaan we dan: met een delegatie van ruim 25 personen, alle op de een of andere manier aan biomassa verbonden, naar Brazilië. Ik ben verrast door de breedte van het gezelschap. Met vertegenwoordigers van de havens, de energie- en de brandstoffensector, de chemie, onderzoek en consultancy, overheden, op- en overslag laten we zien dat we in de gehele keten samenwerken. Dat is goed, want geen enkele speler of sector kan het werkveld van de biobased economy omvatten. Als Rotterdammer maak ik van dichtbij mee hoe er wordt gewerkt aan de `geleidelijke overgang van een fossiele haven naar een haven die gebaseerd is op hernieuwbare grondstoffen. Daar zijn uiteenlopende partijen bij betrokken. Samenwerking, nieuwe allianties en hernieuwde verbindingen tussen sectoren zijn noodzakelijk. Ook het programma dat voor ons ontwikkeld is, is breed: we ontmoeten bedrijven, wetenschappers en overheden op verschillende niveaus. Ook die breedte juich ik toe. Brazilië is voor ons een onmisbare partner. Om onze ambities Rotterdams, nationaal en Europees voor de biobased economy te realiseren staan we voor grote uitdagingen. We moeten waarborgen dat er voldoende aanvoer van duurzame biomassa is, zonder dat het ten koste gaat van natuur en voedselkwaliteit. Daarvoor hebben we ook in landen van herkomst van de biomassa goede en betrouwbare partners nodig. Daarnaast is deze reis belangrijk voor de regionale samenwerking. Eerder maakten we vanuit het Rotterdam Climate Initiative reizen naar de Verenigde Staten, Japan en China. Deze leidden tot vruchtbare samenwerking met de gastlanden maar het was ook goed om een aantal dagen met elkáár op te trekken. Daaruit kwamen mooie initiatieven voort, met soms onverwachte samenwerkingspartners. Ook rond biomassa is er veel potentie voor samenwerking. Samenwerking tussen partners in de keten biedt kansen om te komen tot optimale verwaarding van de biomassa. Maar ook samenwerking op regionaal en Europees niveau biedt kansen. De Europese Commissie heeft in februari een stevige ambitie gepresenteerd om de biobased economy te ontwikkelen. Hierin speelt Nederland samen met Vlaanderen een belangrijke rol. Tussen Zuid-Holland, Oosten West-Vlaanderen en Antwerpen ontstaat een biobased delta, die een uitstekende toegang biedt tot Noordwest-Europa. Daarbij speelt ook de Eemshaven een belangrijke rol. Wat deze regio's bindt, is de aanwezigheid van clusters van actieve bedrijven op de terreinen van landbouw, chemie, energie en logistiek, alsmede kennisinstellingen. Gezamenlijk vormen zij de belangrijkste voorwaarde om van de biobased economy in ons land een succes te maken. Deze zeer diverse delegatie vormt daarvan de weerspiegeling. Ik wens ons een inspirerende reis toe! Ruud Lubbers Voorzitter van de Council van het Rotterdam Climate Initiative Delegatieleider Reis- en achtergrondinformatie voor de delegatieleden 4

5 Inleiding op de reis Rotterdam is vanaf het begin van de 20e eeuw een energiehaven. De regio zorgt voor een continue en betrouwbare voorziening van energie voor de haven, de regio, Nederland en Noordwest-Europa. In de Rotterdamse haven wordt nu hard gewerkt aan de geleidelijke overgang van een fossiele haven naar een haven die gebaseerd is op hernieuwbare grondstoffen. Een groot deel van de biomassa die naar Europa komt, zal via Rotterdam binnenkomen en daar ook deels be- en verwerkt worden. De overgang naar biomassa levert een belangrijke bijdrage aan de doelstelling van het Rotterdam Climate Initiative, dat de CO 2 - uitstoot in deze regio in 2025 wil halveren ten opzichte van Rotterdam richt zich op alle drie de toepassingen van biomassa: - Biomassa voor energie; - Biomassa voor duurzame transportbrandstoffen; - Biomassa voor groene chemie. Voorjaar 2011: fact finding mission naar Brazilië Om de ambities waar te maken, moet er voldoende biomassa binnenkomen, die concurrerend is en voldoet aan duurzaamheidcriteria. In 2011 reisde een kleine delegatie naar Brazilië, onder leiding van Ruud Lubbers en verder gevormd door wethouder duurzaamheid van de gemeente Rotterdam, Alexandra van Huffelen en Pieter van Essen van het Havenbedrijf. De reis vormde een eerste verkenning van de mogelijkheden om samen te werken en in Brazilië geproduceerde biomassa naar Europa te exporteren. De nadruk lag toen op vaste biomassa, met name houtpellets. Hoewel er een duidelijke Rotterdamse insteek was, fungeerde deze reis ook als fact finding mission voor de nationale overheid. Gesprekken vonden plaats met de CNA Brazil (land- en tuinbouworganisatie), de federale overheid, het bedrijfsleven (vooral bosbouwondernemingen), NGO s en de regering van de staat Goias. Een belangrijke algemene conclusie luidde dat export van biomassa nog niet significant is maar dat er op alle niveaus interesse is om biomassaproductie voor export verder te ontwikkelen. Vraagtekens bleken er ook te zijn, onder andere over de commerciële haalbaarheid en de logistiek. Uit gesprekken met bosbouwondernemingen blijkt dat er grote interesse is voor deze nieuwe bedrijfstak. Het potentieel is groot: een enorm areaal (landbouwgrond in Brazilië kent een oppervlakte van 6,5 keer Frankrijk) en een groeitijd voor hout die 7 tot 10 keer korter is dan in Finland. Ook wordt er hard gewerkt aan de ontwikkeling van technologieën om de biomassa te bewerken, zoals torrefactie en pyrolyse. Suzano, een belangrijke Braziliaanse bosbouwonderneming, heeft een voorsprongpositie in het kweken van eucalyptushout met een hoge energiewaarde. Andere bedrijven hebben interesse om die in te lopen. Zij hebben hierbij interesse in investeerders om hen daarbij te helpen. De bosbouwondernemingen zullen naar verwachting vooral inzetten op langjarige contracten met afnemers. Met NGO s werd gesproken over de duurzaamheid van biomassa. De verwachting is dat houtpellets, afkomstig van aangelegde bossen, duurzaam en milieverantwoord geproduceerd kunnen worden. Wel voorziet men aanloopproblemen. De bosbouwondernemingen hebben zich Reis- en achtergrondinformatie voor de delegatieleden 5

6 bij de productie van pulp en papier verantwoord gedragen, dat heeft bij NGO s vertrouwen gewekt dat dit bij biomassa-productie ook het geval zal zijn. Een aandachtspunt vormen de certificeringsschema s, die moeten niet te complex zijn. Een ander aandachtspunt is Indirect Land Use Change (ILUC), een issue dat in Europa breed als een probleem wordt gezien. De Europese Commissie erkent het probleem maar ziet voorlopig geen oplossingen. Een heldere visie van Braziliaanse zijde op dit issue kan behulpzaam zijn bij de discussie die hierover in eigen land en op Europees niveau gevoerd wordt. Ook bij het formuleren van een voorstel voor een verantwoorde toename van de bijmengverlichting van biobrandstoffen voor transport, kan het zinvol zijn om hierover de visie vanuit Brazilië te kennen. Zoals wellicht bekend, is het Rotterdam Climate Initiative door (demissionair) staatssecretaris Atsma gevraagd om hierover mee denken. Het RCI vraagt hierbij de biobrandstoffensector om input. Er is vorig jaar ook uitgebreid contact geweest met de landbouwstaat Goias. Goias heeft stevige ambities op het gebied van hernieuwbare energie en de productie van biomassa. De staat wil graag samenwerken met Nederland / Rotterdam. In het najaar is een Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) getekend, waarin de samenwerking met de publieke en private sectoren van Goias nog eens werd bekrachtigd. Er is sindsdien onder andere een seminar geweest, waarbij de belangrijkste Europese certificeringsschema s zijn toegelicht aan geïnteresseerden in Goias. Tijdens onze huidige reis gaan we opnieuw naar Goias en hopen we een stap te zetten richting daadwerkelijke overeenkomsten tussen producenten en afnemers van biomassa. Ontwikkelingen op landelijk en Europees niveau Ook op landelijk niveau is er veel aandacht voor Brazilië. Afgelopen najaar is een MoU getekend tussen de Braziliaanse overheid en staatssecretaris Bleker. Het was een vervolg op een MoU dat in 2008 werd getekend en dat tot eerste kennismakingen heeft geleid. Het MoU uit 2011 is nog steeds vrij algemeen maar toont een duidelijke intentie om samen te werken. Belangrijke thema s zijn biochemie, biobrandstoffen en biobased economy. Belangrijk aandachtspunt is de verwaarding van de biomassa, oftewel de inzet van de grondstoffen voor het product met de hoogste toegevoegde waarde. Momenteel wordt gewerkt aan de inhoudelijke invulling van het MoU en het tijdspad. Daar heeft Rotterdam een belangrijke rol in, omdat het Ministerie van EL&I sterke nadruk legt op wat de bedrijven nodig hebben en wanneer. Op Europees niveau wordt biomassa als een grote kans gezien. Afgelopen februari presenteerde de Europese Commissie de strategie Innovating for sustainable growth: a bioeconomy for Europe. Een goed startpunt voor verdere ontwikkeling en uitvoering. Met aandacht voor issues die voor ons ook van belang zijn, zoals de aanvoer van voldoende biomassa tegen concurrerende prijzen. Vanuit Rotterdam onderhouden we contact met de betreffende bewindslieden en brengen we onze praktijkervaringen onder de aandacht. Een sterk appel dat we aan Europa doen is om te werken aan standaardisatie van bestaande duurzaamheidsnormen. In het licht van de ketenbenadering, het vormen van (internationale!) clusters die de Commissie sterk benadrukt, is standaardisatie, normering en certificering van groot belang. Ook hier geldt dat het helpt bij de Europese lobby, wanneer wij heldere signalen vanuit een groot producerend land zoals Brazilië kunnen overbrengen.

7 Voorjaar 2012: concrete afspraken met Brazilië Vorig jaar een fact finding mission, dit jaar een stap verder dan oriëntatie. De reis is gericht op het verdiepen van de relaties en heeft ook als doel om tot concrete zaken te komen in de nabije toekomst. Doelen van de delegatie: - Laten zien aan de Braziliaanse business-en regeringsvertegenwoordigers welke plannen en business-kansen Nederlandse bedrijven hebben, die (kunnen) leiden tot investeringen in import / export met Brazilië. - Verkennen van de mogelijkheden van de Braziliaanse activiteiten (productie en export) rond biomassa, vaste en vloeibare, hout, ethanol, soja, biodiesel, etc. - Uitwisselen van ervaringen met logistieke ontwikkelingen (modal split) en de keuze van de laadhavens. - In kaart brengen van de huidige situatie rond Braziliaanse en Nederlandse / Europese criteria voor duurzaamheid / certificeringen. - In kaart brengen van visie op hoe we om kunnen gaan met Indirect Land Use Change (ILUC). - Input voor de Europese lobby verzamelen: kennis en argumenten vanuit de Braziliaanse partijen. - Voeren van discussie over prijzen en marktsituatie, invoerbeperkingen, juridische aspecten. - Het organiseren van business-to-business contacten. Resultaten: - Grotere bekendheid bij de Braziliaanse professionele partijen over de Rotterdamse / Nederlandse / Europese expertise, ervaring, visie e.d. - Grotere bekendheid over relevante ontwikkelingen in Brazilië. - Leveren van een bijdrage aan de Braziliaanse kennis met name over logistiek, techniek, research, training en development op relevante terreinen rond vaste en vloeibare biomassa. - Verbreding van het netwerk gericht op de industriële en logistieke ontwikkeling in Brazilië. - Stimulering van de investeringen van Braziliaanse bedrijven in Nederland. De hoofdlijn van het reisprogramma Er worden bezoeken gebracht aan lokale en centrale overheidsorganisaties en aan 10 bedrijven. Reis- en achtergrondinformatie voor de delegatieleden 7

8 Achtergrond Brazilië Algemeen Brazilië, officieel de Federale Republiek Brazilië, is een land in Zuid-Amerika grenzend aan Frans-Guyana, Suriname, Guyana, Venezuela, Colombia, Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, Argentinië, Uruguay en de Atlantische Oceaan. Brazilië is met zijn 8,5 miljoen vierkante kilometer het grootste land van Zuid-Amerika (het beslaat bijna de helft van dit continent) en het op vier na grootste ter wereld (alleen Rusland, Canada, de Verenigde Staten en China zijn groter). Er wonen 200 mln mensen. De mensen zijn divers in oorsprong: het is een mengelmoes van Afrikanen, Europeanen en indianen. Hoewel elementen van de Afrikaanse en Indiaanse culturen voortleven in de Braziliaanse cultuur, heeft Brazilië overwegend een westerse cultuur. Circa 1,4 miljoen Brazilianen zijn van Japanse afkomst en leven hoofdzakelijk in het zuiden. Het land heeft buiten Japan de grootste Japanse bevolking in de wereld. Nederlands Brazilië In de zeventiende eeuw is Brazilië drie decennia lang deels bezet geweest door De West Indische Compagnie (WIC). Met name in het Noordoosten van Brazilië zijn nog vele sporen hiervan te vinden. Op het hoogtepunt was deze bezetting de periode van Johan Maurits van Nassau-Siegen, met de bijnaam Maurits de Braziliaan - één van de succesvolste experimenten van het Europese optreden.

10 Biomass Information Bioethanol Bioethanol is a form of renewable energy which can be produced from simple crops such as potatoes, corn and sugarcane and Goiás is the second-largest producer of bioethanol from sugarcane on the planet. Of the 15 states producing sugarcane in Brazil, Goiás is the third largest after São Paulo and Minas Gerais, and in terms of bioethanol production alone the state is second only to São Paulo. The total area occupied by sugarcane in Brazil is less than nine million hectares at present, so with an area of over 35 million hectares, Goiás has ample space for growth. André Luiz Baptista Lins Rocha is President of SIFAEG, the syndicate which brings together the ethanol producers of Goiás. He has confidence in the state s ability to create a cleaner source of energy for the whole country: By 2015, approximately 15% of the electricity generated in the country could come from biomass. One may say that agro-energy is truly the salvation of the crop. The American Government, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, considers ethanol as an advanced fuel. In its calculations the American agency concludes it emits 60% less CO 2 than gasoline. The United States can participate in the sector here in Brazil and take back fuel that is cleaner, more efficient, that can improve the American electric power network, which is not very clean or renewable, and help to fulfill the Kyoto and Copenhagen protocols, points out Rocha. By 2015, approximately 15% of the electricity generated in the country André Luiz Baptista Lins Rocha, President of SIFAEG Another advantage is the low cost of production. The current value for ethanol production is $0.22 per liter when the feedstock is sugar cane, but $0.30/l, when corn and $0.53/l when beet is used. The United States makes corn-based ethanol and Europe uses beet. Based on these values, one can say that the alcohol produced in Brazil is the most appropriate for the consumer. The agro-energy and biofuel sectors in Goiás also represent smarter investment opportunities because of their sustainability. Agricultural areas are maintained with very few insecticides and no poisons wasps are used to eradicate potentially harmful cricket populations, and cane residues are recycled to provide fertilizers. The by-products left from sugarcane also serve as compost, meaning that bioethanol production is truly a cleaner, more sustainable means of producing energy. The climate, soil and topography all make Goiás a sensible prospect for investors, while incentive programs give the state a competitive advantage over other sugarcane producing regions. British Petroleum has recently started investing in alternative sources of renewable energy, and has two plants operating in Goiás, in Itumbiara and Edeia. The energy company has plans to double its production capacity in the Itumbiara plant. Produced by: Nadine Padrón, Ana García Navarro and Eddy García-Zapatero.

11 Bio-ethanol in Brazil Brazil is, after the United States, the largest producer of bio-ethanol in the world with a annual production of almost m3 (2010). The country produces nearly 40 percent of this world market. Brazil hopes the national production in the coming years to increase to 2.6 million m3. Brazilian bio-ethanol is mainly produced from sugar cane. The main region for sugarcane, is the state of São Paulo in the south, followed by the region around Recife and Natal in the northeast. On the average, not more than half of the harvest is used for the ethanol production. A shortage of oil in the long term care for the environment (CO 2 emissions) have global levels led to increased attention to alternative forms of energy, including bio-energy. also Brazil used in this strongly. State-owned Petrobras has been for several years doing research on alternative energy, including consideration for the transportation of bio-ethanol. Transportation by pipeline may play an important role, since the cost of transportation in this way are much lower than road transport. In addition, inland waterway transport can realize a significant reduction of the transport-costs. Petrobras has announced to invest in the coming years around 3.5 billion U.S. dollars in bio-energy (production facilities, pipelines). Other large companies implement several new projects for the construction of ethanol plants, especially in the central and south-western part of Brazil. Also Europe is focusing more and more on use of biofuels. The European Directive "Biofuels" requires Member States to make efforts to increase use of biofuels. So 2020 is 10 percent of the fuel for cars from biofuel to exist. The Netherlands will also strive to that. Especially for companies with knowledge in the logistics sector offers opportunities for Brazil. The country must invest heavily in the storage of bio-ethanol, railways, water transport and portfacilities. There are also opportunities for Dutch companies that have developed technologies to 'second or third generation' biofuels. Another option concerns triangular partnerships: Brazil can deliver the technology, another third country can deliver capital and also the facilities for bioethanol production. The Netherlands would, in this way, be investing in bio-ethanol production. More information: - ANP (Brazilian Agency for Petroleum, Gas and Bio-Energy): - Brazilian Ministry of Mines and Energy: Biomass and Chemical industry The Brazilian Sugarcane Industry Association (BSIA) says to have prevented 600 million tons of CO 2 emissions by the addition of 25 percent ethanol in gasoline, since The crushed cane is not just burnt, but used as fuel for electricity generation. The BSIA no longer focuses solely on ethanol, but also works to develop plastics from sugar and look for opportunities to produce hydrocarbons.

12 Bio-energy research with Brazilian and Dutch involvement Sustainable International Bioenergy Trade - Securing Supply and Demand Task: 40 Start: 1/01/2010; End: 31/12/2012 Web: and Countries: Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, UK, and the USA. Taskforce Leadership Leader 1: Mr. Andre Faaij (Scentific) Copernicus Institute / Utrecht University The Netherlands Leader 2: Mr. Peter-Paul Schouwenberg (Administration) Senior Officer Regulatory Affairs-Corporate Affairs at Essent The Netherlands Objectives and scope Clearly, the strongly growing demand for biomass and biofuels make clear that there is a growing need to develop biomass resources and exploit biomass production potentials in a sustainable way and to understand what this means in different settings. In some markets, prices of biomass resources and fuels are already rising, including indirect effects on price of raw material prices for e.g. the forest industry as well as on food (e.g. sugar). Biomass markets are still immature and this is in particular true for the demand side of the market; many biomass markets, e.g. for solid fuels, rely on policy objectives and incentives, that prove to be volatile. It is particularly important to develop both supply and demand for biomass and energy carriers derived from biomass in a balanced way and avoid distortions and instability that can threaten investments in biomass production, infrastructure and conversion capacity. Our understanding of how this is best organised and managed needs further improvement. International biomass markets have been mapped by Task 40, but to date available analyses, statistics and modelling exercises still have limitations The core objective of the Task remains: to support the development of a sustainable, international, bioenergy market, recognising the diversity in resources, biomass applications Developing the sustainable and stable, international, bioenergy market is a long-term process. The Tasks aims to provide a vital contribution to such (policy making) decisions in the coming years for market players, policy makers, international bodies as well as NGO s. It aims to do so by providing high quality information and analyses, providing overviews of developments, be a linking pin between different arenas involved in the debate, a clearinghouse for information and by targeted dissemination activities.

13 Key elements of the work programme and outputs Objective 1: Biomass supplies: To deliver refined insights in availability and potential production and supply of biomass resources on regional, national and global level. This explicitly includes a range of biomass residue streams, land use, and competition for land and on various markets worldwide (i.c. including developing regions). This objective is in particular to be tackled by inter-task collaboration. For Task 40 the focus will lay on development of supplies at large in relation to various drivers (demand development, improvements in production and logistics) and barriers (e.g. lack of investment, sustainability concerns). Objective 2: Sustainability and certification: To determine how the sustainability of biomass supplies, use and trade can be secured optimally and efficiently, in particular from a market perspective, with specific attention for the impacts of certification/verification on international biomass and biofuels trade. Objective 3: Trade, market and demand dynamics: To map and provide an integral overview of biomass markets and trade on global level, as well as for specific regions, identify and map new markets and products (such as Jathropha oil, demand from industry, heating markets, biorefining and future 2nd generation biofuels production). Improve the understanding on how biomass trade and markets respond to fluctuating (fossil) energy prices, developments on global markets for food and forestry products, emission trading, and policies of different countries. Specific attention is paid to the balance between demand and supply aspects versus structures, institutions, drivers, technologies, etc. influencing demand and how to organise biomass trade under uncertainties observed in the market. Objective 4: Transport, Logistics, and trade: Provide (further) insights in international biomass supply lines and logistic requirements (including new producing regions, i.e. developing countries and Eastern Europe) and these can be optimised over time. This includes increasing our understanding on how costs of biomass production, pre-treatment and transport can be reduced over time, e.g. through better organisation and applying more efficient technology. Such work includes advanced forecasting exercises on required logistic capacity to facilitate increased biomass use and trade. Objective 5: Outreach and dissemination: High quality dissemination; the Task is to provide a key international platform (with a diverse range of stakeholders) for bioenergy trade and markets (covering supply and demand, sustainability, financial products etc.). Findings of the Task are translated in analysis and advice for industry and entrepreneurs, policy makers and other stakeholders (such as NGO s). It aims to do so by delivering high quality information and analyses, providing overviews of developments, be a linking pin between different arena s involved in the debate, a clearinghouse for information and by targeted dissemination activities. Opportunities for industry and research partnerships are specifically sought after, aiming to more networking type events to draw in business.

14 Bioenergy in Brazil December 2003: Guest Editorial by Dr Manoel Nogueira, Alternate Member for Brazil, and Paulo Cruz Brazil produces well above the world average level of energy from renewable sources. Energy from biomass alone increased in absolute values from 53% of 74 Mtoe in the 1970s to the current 25.5% of 187 Mtoe. This was made possible by fast transition to commercial energy plantations, lower domestic utilisation and improvement in transportation and industry. The current competitive bioenergy prices of less than US$1.5/GJ require the use of advanced technologies such as gasification and combined cycles for electricity and hydrolysis and fermentation for ethanol production. The estimated prices for bioenergy from USA plantations in 2000, 2010 and 2020 are 2.4, 1.8 and 1.4 US$/GJ respectively. Brazil currently produces bioenergy from Eucalyptus at US$1.16/GJ and intends to bring the price down to US$1.03/GJ in the near future. In a similar way to the sugar cane industry, Brazil has reached a high level of technology for establishment, management and utilisation of Eucalyptus forests. Renewable energy has also reached the automobile industry. The National Alcohol Program PRO-ALCOOL was an incentive to encourage the production of fuel ethanol from sugar cane for automobiles. The aim was to make fuel prices less susceptible to international petroleum price oscillations. In 1986, 80% of Brazil s lightweight vehicles were powered by hydrous alcohol. In that same year, the price of a barrel of petroleum dropped to US$10, which caused a major impact on the program. Nowadays, the sugar cane industry is strong enough to operate without governmental subsidies and alternates its focus between ethanol and sugar. Fuel ethanol continues to have an important effect on fuel consumption as it is added to gasoline in a 1:4 volume basis. Pre-commercial initiatives for the production and utilisation of biodiesel have led to the establishment of the PRO-BIODIESEL program. In a similar way to anhydrous ethanol, it is to be added in gradual steps to fossil diesel. Efforts are being made by the academic, industrial and government sectors to define proportions, routes and technologies to be employed. PROINFA, the new National Program of Incentive to Electric Energy from Alternative Sources will guarantee the purchase of 3,300 MW from small hydro, biomass and wind power plants. A minimum of 60% of national equipment is to be employed in the first phase and 90% in the second. It is thus both an opportunity to diversify the Brazilian energy matrix and to stimulate the national engineering industries. Although it already demonstrates an outstanding level of renewable energy production, Brazil has not diminished its efforts to pursue further energy technologies that are more socially and environmentally friendly.

As specialists in the sales, marketing and trading of wood chips and biomass, Brazil Biomass team is committed to delivering quality products in the required species and volumes, to international customers. Brazil Biomass expertise includes providing competitive markets for its wood chip suppliers. Brazil Biomass has been exporting to China and New Zealand or Turkey and has a highly regarded reputation and excellent customer relationships throughout the pulp and paper industry. Brazil Biomass society of production, industrialization and export of Woodchips, Pellets and Briquetting and the development of projects with the use of forest residues plant to be installed in Santa Catharina, Brazil. Energy solutions based on biomass and bio-fuels cleaner and renewable for large national and international companies, in order to mitigate the impact that their activities have on the environment by reducing emission of greenhouse gases, generating earnings in its financial account of energy and the sale of carbon credits, and provide its energy independence not getting the mercy of the oil market. The Brazil Biomass and Renewable Energy mission is to production biomass wood chips and cooperate in the development of projects through sustainable solutions to waste management for a renewable energy and energy efficiency by biomass. Biomass boilers and CHP has a large potential to reduce both cost and CO 2 emissions compared to gas and fired units. Biomass Renewable Energy To combat climate change and to increase the share of renewable energy sources biomass will play an important role. However, it has to be assured that the increase in use of biomass For energy purposes goes hand in hand with the conservation of biodiversity environment, because biomass production may create additional environmental pressures, such as on biodiversity, soil and water resources. The optimization of all steps from biomass cultivation or collection over transport and processing may contribute to get the maximum greenhouse gas emissions reductions and to reduce emissions affecting air quality. Biomass energy plays a vital role in meeting local energy demand in many regions of the developing world. Biomass is a primary source of energy for close to 2.4billion people in developing countries. It is easily available to many of the world s poor and provides vital and affordable energy for cooking and space heating. Biomass-based industries are a significant source of enterprise development, job creation and income generation in rural areas. Modern biomass energy is widely used in many developing countries as well as in parts of the industrialized world. With proper management backed by adherence to appropriate ecological practices modern biomass can be a sustainable source of electricity as well as liquid and gaseous fuels. Biomass, therefore, is not only a vital source of energy for many today but is likely to remain an important source of energy in the future subject toots sustainable exploitation. The purpose of the Brazil Biomass and Renewable Energy Exports Biomass is to provide information on the various options of biomass utilization for renewable energy production. It aims to facilitate information transfer between producers and users of biomass energy in order to increase the use of biomass energy. Brazil, being a tropical country, has tremendous potential for energy generation. In Brazil, biomass energy is being utilized mainly for domestic, commercial and industrial applications. The administration of the company shall be held and CEO Celso Marcelo de Oliveira Managing Director of InternationalCMO Exports Biomass and Wood Chips and Brazil Biomass and Renewable Energy S.A.

16 Chem companies invest in Brazilian biomass By Doris de Guzman (December 1, 2010) Biomass is in the air as both Dow Chemical and specialty chemical company Rhodia announced today their investments in this energy feedstock. Dow is building a biomass co-generation plant at its Aratu manufacturing complex in Brazil, which will use eucalyptus wood biomass to produce steam for the site's chlor-alkali and chlorohydrin production processes. Chlor-alkali processing (the production of chlorine and caustic soda), by the way, is a large consumer of steam and electricity so this move could potentially lower Dow's operating costs if the biomass feedstock is not that expensive as well as minimize volatility of their electricity costs. Steam and electricity typically account for 50-55% of total chlor-alkali production cost, according to industry analysts. Dow expects the co-generation plant to reduce the site's carbon dioxide emissions by 180,000 tonnes/year and conserve 200,000 cubic meter/day of natural gas.

32 Company visits & Program Details Monday May hrs. Costa Pinto Cosan Cosan was founded in 1936, when it built the Costa Pinto mill in Piracicaba (São Paulo State). In the 1980s it began an expansion process based mainly on the acquisition of companies in the sector. Recently, with the acquisition of Esso s fuel distribution assets and its lubricant production and distribution business in Brazil, it has become the first vertically integrated company in the sector. Vision To be a global reference in clean and renewable energy. Mission To supply cleaner, renewable energy to improve people s lives. Values - Speed with discipline - Creating opportunities - Developing human potential - Engaging and involving customers - Producing more, better - Safety throughout the operations - Building a team Quality Cosan believes in sustainable development and in the principle of continuous improvement. So much so, that it has been seeking to achieve and go beyond best practices in the areas of Quality, the Environment, Health, Safety, and Social Responsibility. To guarantee the consistency and improvement of its products, processes and services, and also to achieve excellence, the company has implemented the Integrated Management System (SIG). As a development structure Cosan uses internationally recognized and accepted norms: - NBR ISO Quality Management Systems. - NBR ISO Environmental Management Systems. - OHSAS Health and Safety at Work Management Systems. - PDV-GMP B2 - Quality Control of Feed Materials. - Cosan s quality management system has certificated recommended by SGS and PDV:GPM B2. Reis- en achtergrondinformatie voor de delegatieleden 32

33 Social Responsibility - The Community In addition to its expansion and strong market share, Cosan also invests in commitments to people, the community and the sustainable development of Brazil. Through the Cosan Foundation the company goes beyond its factory walls and applies its concepts in social-environmental responsibility and the personal and professional development of a number of communities. With this initiative Cosan has effectively contributed to the improvement of quality of life and has tried to encourage those who may have a positive influence on the future of such communities. The variety of programs in the Cosan Foundation, involving partnerships with a number of public and private institutions, assists children and youths in educational and professional training centers through activities that involve culture, information, solidarity, safety, citizenship, respect, health and leisure. Projects such Saber para Crescer, Fábrica do Conhecimento, Pensar e Agir, Meio Ambiente e Brincar e Aprender reach over 60,000 people in 19 cities in the State of São Paulo. There are other projects targeting health, involving Cosan s partnership with hospitals, blood centers and laboratories. 5 Cosan companies Cosan Alimentos Brazil s retail sugar market leader, Cosan Alimentos sells two well-known brands in Brazil: União and Da Barra. The business began with the acquisition of the da Barra Plant in 2002 and in 2009, the NovAmerica Agroenergia brought the União brand to the company s portfolio. On July 1, 2011, Cosan Alimentos was spun off into an independent company to operate in new categories in the foodstuffs industry. Associated with happy times with family, União is the national leader in refined sugar sales with 74% mind share among consumers. As it commemorated its centennial in 2010, the brand expanded its product line to include high value added segments. União is a pioneer in consumer interaction and relationships, which have improved over the decades thanks to recipes printed on packages and, more recently, to the brand s strong presence on social networks. In 1958, União Docelar was inaugurated as the Brazil s first test kitchen and, two years later, the famous Recipe Book as launched. Cosan Lubrificantes e Especialidades Created in 2008 when Cosan acquired the production assets and brand rights for Mobil in Brazil from ExxonMobil, Cosan Lubrificantes e Especialidades was established to provide increasingly innovative solutions in the production, sale and distribution of lubricants to generate benefits to clients. Since then, various product launches, Brazilian motorsports sponsorships, campaigns and promotions targeting final consumers have helped solidify the company for sustainable performance. In 2011, Cosan LE assumed the distribution of basic oils from ExxonMobil in Brazil, increasing its business portfolio and offering the Brazilian market high quality inputs, reaffirming its commitment to innovative solutions that provide savings, increase productivity and reduce environmental impacts.

34 In the same year, Cosan LE signed an agreement to purchase ExxonMobil s lubricant distribution business in Bolivia, Paraguay and Uruguay, becoming the exclusive distributor of Mobil products in these three countries. The conclusion of this operation reiterates Cosan s commitment to the internationalization of its business. Radar Brazilian agricultural lands should appreciate rapidly in the coming years due to world food and biofuel demand. Alert to this trend, in 2008 Cosan created Radar Propriedades Agrícolas to capitalize on new business opportunities in the Brazilian rural real estate market, purchasing properties with significant potential for appreciation and leasing them to major agricultural producers. After they reach their target value, the properties are put on the market. The initial focus is lands prime for sugarcane, soy, corn and cotton production. In its first three years, the company has already invested US$400 million, and today, it manages approximately 106 thousand hectares of lands. To evaluate property potential, Radar uses a satellite monitoring system that allows a detailed analysis of the terrain and physical and chemical profile of the soil and climate, among other information. Created in 2002 in partnership with Campinas State University (Unicamp), they geographic information system allows visualization with a resolution of 5 meters per pixel. A bank of satellite images of areas across Brazil with periodic photos since 1989 allows the company to see the history of the land use before acquisition and avoid, for example, acquisition of lands that were illegally deforested. Raízen A joint venture between Cosan and Shell, Raízen is a Brazilian company which produces more than 2.2 billion gallons of ethanol a year for the domestic and export markets, 4 million tons of sugar, and 900 MW of installed capacity in electricity produced from sugar cane bagasse. It operates a network of about 4,500 fuel service stations throughout Brazil, more than 500 convenience stores, 53 distribution terminals and operates in 54 airports in the aviation fuel business. It is one of the world s most competitive companies in sustainable energy. The name Raízen came out of the Portuguese words for root and energy ( raíz and energia ). The first refers to the part of plants that extracts water and nutrients needed for life, and the latter is the critical factor for any dynamic: any form of life or movement takes energy. The use of the Portuguese name reinforces the fact that this is a Brazilian organization, and the use of purple in the brand s logo is a reference to the appearance of ripe sugar cane. Rumo Logística Created in 2009, Rumo Logística was born as a major player in world logistics in sugar transportation and port operation. The company can load more than 11 million tonnes of sugar and other bulk products per year, in addition to static storage capacity of 470 million tonnes of bulk sugar and 40 thousand tonnes of bagged sugar at the Port of Santos (SP). With four dry ports in upstate São Paulo, Rumo also has static storage capacity of 1 million tonnes of sugar and other commodities. Rumo s various projects reflect, among other characteristics, its economic and environmental responsibility; its R$1.3 billion investment to transport sugar primarily by rail and not highway, Reis- en achtergrondinformatie voor de delegatieleden 34

35 reducing emissions, is a testament to this commitment. By 2013, Rumo hopes to increase rail transportation from the current 5 million tonnes to 11 million tonnes per year. One of Rumo s most innovative investments is the construction of the roof at the South Terminal of the Port of Santos. Every year, rain requires a complete operational stop for approximately 120 days. Ships must wait and lines of trucks cause major traffic jams in the region. To solve this problem, the project provides for 138 m x 17 m metallic roofing that can house the today s largest cargo ships.

42 Wednesday May 9 The State Goiás Goiás ( km2, 6 mln population, GPD per capita R$ 9.962) is a state of Brazil, located in the central part of the country. The name Goiás (formerly, Goyaz) comes from the name of an indigenous community. The original word seems to have been guaiá, a compound of gua e iá, meaning "the same person" or "people of the same origin." Neighboring states are (from north clockwise) Tocantins, Bahia, Minas Gerais, the Federal District, Mato Grosso do Sul and Mato Grosso. Goiás is characterized by a landscape of chapadões (plateaus). In the height of the drought season, from June to September, the lack of rain makes the level of the Araguaia River go down and exposes almost 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) of beaches, making it the main attraction of the State. Goiás State is connected to all Brazilian states and to the largest ports in South America via the main Brazilian highways, railways, waterways and airports. The state is also home to the Brazilian Federal District: Brasília. Goiânia, the state capital of Goiás, is at a distance of a twohour drive or a 30-minute flight from Brasília, the city capital of Brazil. Goiás boasts end-to-end, privileged logistics through which the state is able to import, export and distribute everything, from consumables to finished products. Inland Port and the Multimodal Platform in the city Anápolis serve as a hub and connect the state to the largest South American ports by using the main brazilian highways, railways, and airports. Construction work has also begun on an ethanol pipeline, which will help decrease export costs for biofuels made in Goiás, which already is the fourth largest sugar cane ethanol producer in the world. Additionally, Goiás is a major energy producer: It has eight fully-operational power plants that generate enough power to make a significant contribution to the Brazilian grid. Goiás is one of the fastest-growing states in Brazil. With a GDP of USD 40 billion, it boasts a well-established industrial base and is home to many new and upcoming industries from several segments: pharmaceutical, automotive, food, cleaning products, furniture, shoes, agribusiness and cattle farming, and the tourism industry.there are 32 industrial districts strategically located throughout the state that help bring together the supplier and consumer markets from all over Brazil.

Argos/North Sea Group Organic Sugar for exportation Itaja Organic Sugar: an exclusive product of Jalles Machado, from Goias to the world. Only available for exporting, Itaja Organic Sugar has gained the international market. The product is authenticated by IBD Biodynamic Institute, which stands for production based on environmental preservation and social responsibility. IBD s authentication follows international quality standards checked by IFOAM -International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements, a well-respected entity all over Europe, the United States and Japan. VHP (Very High Polarization) Sugar is used as raw material in other procedures and for refinery, due to its high polarization. During the production process, the juice requires minimal treatment, and it is sulfur and lime free, which gives it a different color. The boiling sugar mass is less washed in the centrifuge, dehumidifying the sugar and that is what makes it good for exporting, as the absence of humidity facilitates bulk transportation. It may be used for consumption, but it is often shipped to countries that use it to produce white or refined sugar. VHP sugar is exported to countries like Russia, United Arab Emirates, Nigeria, Indonesia, Bangladesh and India.

51 Friday May 11 Ministery Group The Ministery of Mines and Energy The Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) is a Brazilian government ministry established in It fosters investments in mining and energy-related activies, funds research and sets out government policies. Previously, mines and energy were the responsibility of the Ministry of Agriculture. Budget 2011 R$ 25,4 billion Minister Edison Lobão Current Minister Since: January 1, 2011 Delegation actions Questions prepared by Mariette van Empel and Maarten Gnoth 1. What is the Brazilian Program or what are the plans regarding the creation of a Regulatory Framework for renewable energy? 2. We have to achieve, according to the CE, 14% in renewable sources by the year Brazil already uses 45% of renewable sources compared to only 13% worldwide. How can the Netherlands, in practice, learn from Brazil in this issue? Is it possible to promote debates on alternative energy sources together? And thus raising issues to support the legal framework? 3. What expectations can The Netherlands have, being the second biggest investor in Brazil? What can we do together to achieve a practically bilateral work? 4. Lately Brazil has set the addition of Ethanol in gasoline to a mixture percentage of of 20%. Brazil is still very much ahead of us. New guidelines have been taken in consideration to increase the production of Ethanol in Brazil and avoid short supply. How can we work together in this matter? Are there business plans that incentives Joint ventures, investments from both sides? 5. Can you tell us something about subsidies/garantees/creditlines; which procedures do you follow? 6. Europe has set lines of certification and suitability under the RED (RENEABLE ENERGY DIRECTRICES). Brazil has grown, identifying the potential social and environmental impacts as a basis for the classification of areas where suitable, unsuitable or moratorium on exploration and production of oil, natural gas, and alternative renewable energy. Could it be of any value if we would make a plan together to change some issues regarding more acceptance of these products in the CE? Reis- en achtergrondinformatie voor de delegatieleden 51

52 The Ministery of Foreign Affairs Current Minister: Antonio Patriota Established: 28 July 1736 Headquarters: Itamaraty Palace, Brasília Annual budget: R$ 2.1 billion (2010) Website: The Itamaraty Palace in Brasília History The Ministry of External Relations has three relevant moments that defined it as the institution that would be later established. The first one was the signature of the 1750 Spanish-Portuguese treaty, which re-established the borders set in the Treaty of Tordesillas. This moment was not a foreign issue policy of Brazil per se, instead being a pursuit of interests by the Portuguese in their largest colony. There was, however, a notable Brazilian in the diplomatic corp, Alexandre de Gusmão, who directed the Portuguese foreign policy of trying to separate the Americas from the subject of European successions. The height of Gusmão's diplomatic effort was the signing of the Treaty of Madrid of 1750, in which the territorial issues in South America were resolved. The second relevant historic moment was the transfer of the Portuguese Court to Brazil in 1808 as a result of the Napoleonic Wars, when the capital of the Portuguese Empire and all its bureaucracy was transferred to Rio de Janeiro. The transfer of the Portuguese Court heavily influenced the Brazilian institutions that would later form. Finally, there was the participation of the Ministry of External Relations in the process of recognition of Brazilian independence. This moment's relevance surpassed the creation of Brazilian diplomatic institutions and tested for the first time the negotiation skills of Emperor Peter I's diplomatic corp, who were able to have recognition from all world powers. From that moment on and since its inception in 1822, the Itamaraty defined some of its basic principles of action such as the pacific resolution of principles and non-intervention. With the conclusion of World War II and the creation of the United Nations in 1945 the Ministry consolidated Brazilian presence in international forums. Notable diplomats in the history of the Itamaraty include the Viscount of Uruguay, the Baron of Rio Branco and Osvaldo Aranha. Foreign policy The primary objective of the Brazilian foreign ministry is to increase the process of regional integration with Mercosul and other regional and financial bodies. It has also been heavily involved in the discussion of important topics on the international agenda including issues such as the protection of human rights, environmental preservation and the maintenance of peace. At the same time, it has strengthened its links with the Community of Portuguese-Speaking Countries and has structured itself in order to meet the needs and ambitions of day to day foreign policy concerns. Brazil currently maintains diplomatic relations with every U.N. member country in the world. Reis- en achtergrondinformatie voor de delegatieleden 52

59 Introduction Rotterdam Climate Initiative visiting Brazil May A trip, initiated by the Rotterdam Climate Imitative (RCI) and led by former Prime Minister and chair of the Council of the RCI, Ruud Lubbers. The aim is to discuss and develop possibilities to work together on biomass. Together with others Rotterdam wants to become the bioport for Northwest Europe. This is part of the transition from a fossil-based port to a port based on renewable feedstock s. We consider this transition a condition for the ability to continue to develop in a sustainable manner. Biomass is an indispensable element in this process. Many companies are currently already in operation, innovative projects are being developed, and in the plans for the construction of the Second Maasvlakte, 80 hectares are allocated to bio-based companies. May 2012 The Netherlands & Rotterdam Rotterdam Bioport Rotterdam is a young and dynamic city with a world-class port and a strong emphasis on the knowledge-intensive sectors of the economy. It s a city of modern architecture, innovation, creativity, events, leisure and recreation. More than one million people from over 160 countries live in the Rotterdam region. Being the Gateway to Europe Rotterdam has a hinterland of 400 million inhabitants. Its open economy and stable political and financial condition has made Rotterdam a business city without parallel. Rotterdam offers an attractive climate for both large and small businesses. Innumerable trade and distribution companies operate from Rotterdam. All national and most international banks and insurance companies have an office here. High standard of education Education is of a high standard and the Netherlands has one of the most skilled and flexible labour pools in Europe. Rotterdam accommodates 20,000 students in higher technical and vocational training and 40,000 students in intermediate training. Whether your company is looking for trainees, recent graduates or temporary staff, young people of different educational levels are gathered in the various institutions. New challenges and economic spearheads Rotterdam is constantly reinventing itself. The city prepares itself for a yet stronger position in Europe. Since 2009, Rotterdam is within direct reach of Paris, London and Frankfurt by highspeed train. The realization of a citywide fiber-optic network is challenging for inhabitants, entrepreneurs as well as for the local government. information Dutch delegation in Brazil 3

60 High profile projects that express our urban ambitions are the Kop van Zuid, the new central station and surrounding area and the extension of the port with the construction of the second Maasvlakte. Rotterdam also faces new challenges. As an international seaport city with a strong industrial sector, Rotterdam is currently accountable for about 16% of the Dutch CO 2 -emissions. That is why Rotterdam wants to reduce the emission of CO 2 by 50% in 2025 as compared to We believe that enduring development of the port and industry can only be realized in a sustainable manner. Sustainability is, therefore, a prime focus for the Port of Rotterdam. Photo: Rick Keus Biomass in the port of Rotterdam Reducing CO 2 -emissions by 50%, preparing for the impact of climate change and strengthening the Rotterdam economy. These are the objectives of the Rotterdam Climate Initiative. To a large extent, the realization of the objective of reducing CO 2 emissions will depend on biomass. The port of Rotterdam offers excellent facilities for biomass trade, transport, storage, transhipment and processing. The Port of Rotterdam has joined the Rotterdam Climate Initiative (RCI) together with the other partners: Deltalinqs, DCMR Environmental Protection Agency Rijnmond and the City of Rotterdam, in order to capitalize on these opportunities. The RCI focuses on three applications of biomass: - Biomass-based energy - Biomass-based renewable transport fuels - Biomass-based green chemistry information Dutch delegation in Brazil 4

61 Port of Rotterdam: Ambition Biomass-based energy (solid biomass): if the substitution of 450 PJ of primary energy, approximately 14% of the total primary energy consumption in the Netherlands in 2009 (3,262 PJ), were to be covered exclusively by biomass, this would involve approximately 30 million tons of solid biomass. A small portion of this quantity could be supplied from domestic residual flows. The major share would have to be imported. In the next decade overseas biomass imports in Rotterdam may rise to 6 to 7 million tons annually. The port of Rotterdam prepares for large-scale biomass imports and creates facilities for the delivery of wood and bagasse pellets in combination with the establishment of a commodity exchange. Biomass-based renewable transport fuels: the port of Rotterdam has a long tradition in storage and transhipment of vegetable oils, which is also a feedstock for biofuels. Rotterdam s total production capacity for biofuels amounts to nearly 80 PJ. In addition, a lot of bio transport fuels are imported through Rotterdam, such as bioethanol and biodiesel. This illustrates Rotterdam s role as a transhipment hub within Northwestern Europe. Biomass-based green chemistry in the port of Rotterdam: in addition to sustainability considerations, strong fluctuations and expected rises in oil prices cause a need in the (petro-) chemical industry to find alternative, renewable feedstocks. In this respect, biomass is, in fact, the only option. The supply of biomass and the production of biofuels offer excellent opportunities for the chemical industry. Rotterdam offers an ideal business climate for the bio-based economy due to the correlation between solid biomass for co-firing and co-incineration, bio transport fuels and green chemistry. The sizeable industrial complex in the port allows for convenient integration of biomass feedstocks into the existing chemicals infrastructure.

75 Furanics: 2,5-Furan-dicarboxylic-acid (FDCA): The movement towards a green economy is gaining huge momentum worldwide. Sparked off by concerns about climate change and peak oil, what started as environmental awareness is now snowballing into a mainstream desire among citizens and companies to be part of a sustainable world that will transition from a fossil-based economy to a green economy. Relying on strong science and proprietary technology, Avantium plans to become a leading provider of building blocks for the emerging market of green materials and renewable energy. FDCA was listed in the top 12 highpotential green building blocks published by the US Department of Energy. Until today, Furanics had not been commercialized because Furanics production was not yet cost-effective. Commercialization Strategy: Avantium is set to change this by the development of a breakthrough technology that allows for the cost-effective production of Furanics. Avantium s proprietary process will unlock a whole new field of green materials and fuels. Beverage bottles, films and fibres: in future, all these things can be made on the basis of Avantium s green building blocks. Avantium plans to commercialize its YXY technology into these multi-billion-dollar markets in collaboration with industrial companies, using a licensing business model to monetize its unique position. Avantium has announced collaborations with The Coca Cola Company and Danone to develop 100% renewable PEF bottles with superior barrier properties compared to PET and with the chemical companies Teijin Arammid, Solvay and Rhodia on different furan containing polyamides. All applications are developed with the prospect to developing products that excel in terms of price and performance. Avantium is evaluating the different biomass sources as potential feedstocks for her YXY process. The evaluation is based on wide range of criteria including price, availability, logistic and sustainability aspects.

80 Port of Rotterdam The Port of Rotterdam Authority is manager, operator and developer of Rotterdam s port and industrial area. The Port Authority is a public limited company (N.V.) with two shareholders: the Municipality of Rotterdam and the Dutch State. As is apparent from the objects stated in the articles of association, we operate in two domains: shipping and the port area. Objects as stated in articles of association: - To promote the effective, safe and efficient handling of shipping in the port of Rotterdam and the approach area off the coast; - The development, construction, management and operation of the port area. Roles of the Port of Rotterdam Authority 1) Port Authority As manager and developer with regard to nautical matters, the Port Authority ensures that the docks are maintained at the right depth, so that ships can enter the port and moor safely. Port Authority staff in traffic centres and on patrol vessels closely monitor and supervise all movements on the water. This is in order to maintain order from a nautical point of view. 2) Port infrastructure As developer and manager, the Port Authority ensures that sufficient space is available for companies in the port. It is for this reason that the Port of Rotterdam Authority supports the construction of Maasvlakte 2. The Port Authority also invests in the improvement and construction of new roads, rail, inland waterway connections and underground pipelines. 3) Port operator As operator and developer of commercial activity in the port and industrial complex, the Port Authority encourages sustainable economic development. The Port Authority ensures, for instance, that there is an attractive climate for establishing business. To this end, we maintain plenty of contact with politicians and businesspeople both at home and abroad. The Port Authority also undertakes a variety of promotional and marketing activities (such as events and trade fairs) to interest companies in Rotterdam. Website: Rotterdam Climate Initiative Objectives of the Rotterdam Climate Initiative: 50% reduction of CO 2 emissions by 2025 as compared to % climate proof by 2025 In combination with: Strengthening the Rotterdam economy Improving the climate for the benefit of people, the environment, and the economy. That is the goal and the mission of the collective initiators, Port of Rotterdam, the City of Rotterdam, Deltalinqs, and DCMR Environmental Protection Agency. The Rotterdam Climate Initiative offers a platform for government, organizations, companies and citizens to work together on a fifty per cent reduction of CO 2 emissions while at the same time promoting the economy in the Rotterdam region. Our motivation To a significant extent, Rotterdam owes its good global reputation as an international seaport city with a strong industry sector to fossil fuels and raw materials. However, these are scarce and finite, and will therefore become ever more expensive. In the long run, this may pose a threat to Rotterdam as an international seaport city, and, by consequence, to the Dutch economy. At the same time, Rotterdam both the city and the port has great ambitions in economic, spatial and societal areas. Rotterdam will continue to grow, both in size and in quality. Today as well as in the future, a healthy and attractive living environment is an absolute requirement. information Dutch delegation in Brazil 24

81 Concurrently, we are confronted with climate change as a result of increased emissions of greenhouse gases in the past century. Situated in the lowest delta in Europe, Rotterdam will consequently be confronted with rising river, sea and groundwater levels, increased precipitation and greater risks of heat stress in the city. Rotterdam s aim to realize 50% reduction of CO 2 emissions and to become 100% climate proof will enable the city to maintain its international top position and to benefit optimally from the economic opportunities that are created in this context. Rotterdam will develop into an attractive, clean, accessible and safe port city. Website: Suikerunie Suiker Unie develops, produces and markets sugar and sugar specialties. Her factories for the production of sugar in Dinteloord, Vierverlaten and Anklam (Northeast Germany) are among the most modern in the world. This is also true for the factories in Puttershoek and Roosendaal, which produce dry and liquid sugar specialties. The head office is located in Dinteloord. Suiker Unie also produces bio-ethanol and biogas. They foresee a huge growth in producing intermediate products and building blocks for the bio plastic and chemical industry. Suiker Unie forms part of Royal Cosun. This international group develops, produces and markets natural foodstuffs and food ingredients. Royal Cosun is a cooperative of approximately 10,000 sugar beet growers. The group has an annual turnover of approximately EUR 1.8 billion and has more than 3,700 employees. Website: TNO TNO is a contract research organisation with the aim to increase the innovative capacity of companies, government bodies and public organisations. The daily work of some 4,300 employees is to develop and apply knowledge and work on technical innovations. TNO provides contract research and specialist consultancy as well as grant licences for patents and specialised software. TNO tests and certifies products and services, and issues an independent evaluation of quality. Finally, TNO provides licences to some 600 inventions in its patents portfolio. We operate in various markets among which Energy, Oil and Gas, Automotive, Water, Life Sciences, Space and many more. TNO is versatile and is organised around 7 themes: Energy, Industrial Innovation, Integral Safety, Health, Mobility, Build Environment and ICT. TNO Security Security has shifted from a collection of ad hoc reactions to incidents to a cohesive set of measures and effects. The potential impact and the cascading effects of incidents as well as the social cost-benefits profile of security measures requires a comprehensive approach and orchestration based on risk and effect. Perception and acceptance are key to chosen solutions and much has to be seen in the international context. TNO Sustainable Chemical Industry Diverse trends are visible in sustainable chemistry. The general trend is that the environmental impact of the industry is being repelled. Moreover, there is the risk of a structural shortage of raw materials like oil and gas. In addition, for special products (from polymers to pharma), including medicines and food ingredients, two key challenges exist: get products faster to market and be less dependent on raw material prices. To tackle these challenges, the sector needs new, advanced process technology. To develop this, TNO focuses primarily on the special chemistry and fine chemistry. This is the upper part of the value chain, from polymers to pharma. In this part of the value chain the production volumes are relatively small and there is more often investment in new equipment if this is needed to get new products to market. In that sense, this part of the sector is more innovative than bulk chemistry. Many products in the special chemistry and fine chemistry are produced in generic equipment. In bulk chemistry, by contrast, equipment is specifically designed for one product. This means that the development of that equipment for a company is often of strategic importance. Higher in the value chain generic equipment tends to be used, also developed in open innovation. The strategic knowledge of the companies is then contained in how this equipment is controlled and connected. The developments for special chemistry and fine chemistry may well lead to spin-offs for bulk chemistry, like preconnected, small-scale solutions to mix biomass in raw material flows and slight adjustments to save energy. information Dutch delegation in Brazil 25

82 For high-risk companies with complex production processes it is essential to optimise the design, control, use and maintenance of larger production systems (of more than 100 million euros and with a lifetime of more than thirty years). Therefore, TNO focuses on system modelling for processes where account must be taken of production, safety, maintenance and investments. Propositions or Business Lines in Sustainable Chemical Industry are: Bio Based Economy ; Process Intensification: Efficiency via flow chemistry and Innovative Industrial Risk Management.

The two ports are eminently qualified for this role thanks to their unique geographical location, free access to the open sea and a first-rate network of road, rail, pipelines and waterway links to the hinterland of Europe. Even the largest seagoing vessels are able to call Zeeland Seaports with a minimum of deviation from main shipping routes and without tidal restrictions. In addition, the ports handle a wide range of shortsea and inland vessels providing a comprehensive network of cargo services right across Europe. Flexibility, speed, quality and customerfriendliness are other reasons for more and more companies to choose Zeeland Seaports as the strongest link to Europe. With plenty of space for development and with new business projects springing up all the time, Zeeland Seaports has ample opportunity for future growth. Zeeland Seaports and its experienced staff look forward to helping customers develop and grow their business. Terneuzen The Port of Terneuzen lies at the entrance to the Ghent-Terneuzen Canal, partly fronting the tidal water of the Western Scheldt and partly behind the locks. The port covers 2,100 hectares and stretches from the deepwater Braakmanhaven to the long established industrial town of Sas van Gent. The lock system accepts seagoing vessels up to 265 metres length, 12.5 metres draught and 34 metres beam. Vlissingen The Port of Vlissingen expanded outside the town of Vlissingen in the 1960s with the creation of Vlissingen- Oost, a major new harbour area with facilities for industrial processing and large-scale cargo handling. Vlissingen covers a total area of 2,400 hectares and is able to handle ships with a maximum of 16.5 metres draught. Multimodal port Zeeland Seaports is well placed to make best use of inland waterway services - a cost-effective and eco friendly mode of transport. There is a choice of connecting routes to the extensive inland waterway network of Europe. Inland barges have easy access to Zeeland Seaports via these waterways. Both Terneuzen and Vlissingen are linked to the European rail network. There is a steady flow of rail freight to and from Belgium, France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland. Customers can use block trains and tailor-made logistics to move large volumes of freight everything from raw materials to finished goods. Also via road and pipeline Zeeland Seaports is well connected to its hinterland. Zeeland Seaports has various dedicated terminals for handling specific goods: - General cargo, breakbulk, containers; - Forest products; - Food and agriculture products; - Roll-on, roll-off; - Dry and liquid bulk For handling of forrest products, Zeeland Seaports is the largest port in the Western part of Europe. In 2011 a throughput was realised of 35,5 million tonnes (seaborne cargo, in en ex). Inland shipping volume was 31,4 million tonnes. Both results were record figures. For the next years Zeeland Seaports is, together with the logistic companies in its port area, investing in extra capacity for storage of liquidbulk, dry bulk and forest products. Also new container handlingcapacity will be realized in the near future. Website: information Dutch delegation in Brazil 27
