International development

Albioma’s acquisition of a 60% stake in the Esplanada cogeneration unit is the second partnership with the Jalles Machado sugar group in Brazil, two years after the takeover of the Codora Energia plant. While this investment contributes to strengthening the Group’s positioning in a country with more than 400 sugar mills, it also reflects the recognition of Albioma’s expertise and the climate of trust that has developed between the two partners.
