Cosan Limited operates as an integrated energy and infrastructure company. The company is engaged in the fuel distribution, sugar and ethanol production, natural gas distribution, and logistics businesses. Segments The company’s segments include Raízen Energia S.A. (Raízen Energia); Raízen Combustíveis S.A. (Raízen Combustíveis); Rumo Logística S.A. (Rumo); Radar Propriedades Agrícolas S.A. (Radar); Companhia de Gás de São Paulo (Comgás); and Lubricants. Raízen Energia segment This segment includes the company’s upstream joint venture company, Raízen Energia. This segment is engaged in the production and sale of various products derived from sugarcane, including raw sugar (very high polarization (VHP)), anhydrous, and hydrated ethanol, as well as activities related to energy cogeneration from sugarcane bagasse and ethanol trading. Raízen Energia operates 24 sugar, ethanol and energy cogeneration mills, with a crushing capacity of 66 million tons of sugarcane per year. The company produces and sells various standard sugars, including raw sugar (VHP), crystal sugar and organic sugar; and refined sugars, including granulated refined white sugar, amorphous refined sugar, refined sucrose liquid sugar, and refined inverted liquid sugar. Standard Sugars: VHP sugar is a raw sugar. The company exports VHP sugar in bulk, to be refined at its final destination. It also sells a small amount of VHP sugar to the Brazilian market. Crystal sugar is a non-refined sugar produced directly from sugarcane juice and sold to industrial companies in Brazil to be used as an ingredient for food products. The company also sells a small amount of crystal sugar to the Brazilian retail market and to export markets. Organic sugar is a kind of raw sugar produced from organic sugarcane and is not submitted to chemical treatments during its manufacturing process. The company sells organic sugar in the international and the Brazilian markets. Refined Sugars: The company refines VHP sugar and crystal sugar into both granulated and amorphous (non-crystallized) sugar. It sells refined sugar in the Brazilian and exports retail and industrial markets. Refined sugar is used as an ingredient in processed food products, such as milk and chocolate powders, bakery products, powder refreshments, and pharmaceutical syrups. Liquid Sugars: The company refines crystal sugar to produce sucrose liquid sugar and inverted liquid sugar. It sells both types of sugar for industrial use, primarily for the production of soft drinks. The company sells sugar to a range of customers in Brazil and in the international markets. Its customers in Brazil include Docelar Alimentos e Bebidas S.A., and food manufacturers, for which it primarily sells refined and liquid sugar. The company primarily sells raw sugar in the international markets through international commodities trading firms and the Brazilian trading companies. The company produces and sells three different types of ethanol, such as hydrous ethanol and anhydrous ethanol for fuel and industrial ethanol. The primary type of ethanol consumed in Brazil is hydrous ethanol, which is used as an alternative to gasoline for flex fuel vehicles (as opposed to anhydrous ethanol, which is used as an additive to gasoline). The company’s sales are primarily to fuel distributors in Brazil, such as Petrobras Distribuidora S.A., Raízen Combustíveis, and Cia. Brasileira de Petróleo Ipiranga. The company also sells industrial alcohol, which is used in the chemical and pharmaceutical sectors. In the nine-month period ended December 31, 2013, the company’s major ethanol customer was Raízen Combustíveis. The company’s major export customers are trading companies, which distribute its products primarily to the United States, Japan, and Europe. The company’s exports are conducted through TEAS Terminal Exportador de Álcool de Santos S.A., an ethanol loading terminal at the Port of Santos. The company’s annual ethanol production capacity is approximately 2.6 billion liters. It has an installed energy capacity of 934 MW per year from its 24 mills, of which 13 mills sold its excess energy to the grid and on the spot mar
