Abengoa Bioenergia’s Brazilian arm files for bankruptcy protection

September 26, 2017 |

As of December, the company owed $265 million in bank debt. The company owns two sugarcane-based ethanol mills, crushing a total of 7 million metric tons annually. Pakistani investors pulled out of a due diligence process in May after finding the mills’ situation too risky, leaving the likelihood that it will be difficult to restructure debt.
