that UNICA and other stakeholders made during the public process. The EPA should be congratulated for the way it upheld Obama's goals of transparency and scientific integrity in the environmental rulemaking. And we hope that other governments will take note of the manner in which the EPA has handled this process," concluded Velasco.

Brazil is a leader in the production of sugarcane ethanol, which is widely considered to be the most efficient biofuel available today. In 2009, Brazil produced over 7 billion gallons of sugarcane ethanol, most of which is used in Brazil in flex fuel vehicles. As a result of Brazil's innovative use of sugarcane ethanol in transportation and biomass for cogeneration, sugarcane is the leading source of renewable energy in the nation, representing 16% of the country's total energy needs. In fact, gasoline has become the alternative fuel in Brazil, reducing the country's dependence on fossil fuels and cutting emissions. A recent study in the November 2009 edition of the journal Energy Policy indicated that since 1975, over 600 million tons of CO2 emissions have been avoided thanks to the use of ethanol in Brazil.
