FLORIDA FARMS FEED THE NATION
Miami Herald - April 14, 2011
Government spending doesn’t create jobs that generate profits and grow the economy. Only investments by the private sector do. Let’s get to work and produce goods and services for our state and country. That’s what Florida agriculture is all about — feeding America. More...

SUGAR FARMERS ACHIEVE ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL YEAR CLEANING WATER, STATE REPORT CONFIRMS
Press Release - March 8, 2010

The Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA) receives praise for its proven success in cleaning water south of Lake Okeechobee by two top state environmental agencies in their annual restoration report. The 2010 South Florida Environmental Report, published by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the South Florida Water Management District, reveals the EAA achieved a 68 percent reduction in phosphorus loads in 2009 and an overall 54 percent long-term reduction in phosphorus loading during its 14th straight year of meeting water quality goals.  The target for reductions is 25 percent.  More...

FARMERS SOUTH OF LAKE OKEECHOBEE ACHIEVE FURTHER SUCCESS IN EVERGLADES RESTORATION
Press Release - August 14, 2009

In the Everglades restoration effort, farmers south of Lake Okeechobee recorded another year of tremendous success with their eco-friendly farming practices. Employing Best Management Practices (BMPs), farmers in the Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA) achieved 68 percent phosphorus reductions in the water leaving the region, according to the South Florida Water Management District's annual update on Everglades restoration performance. Under the Everglades Forever plan, farmers are tasked with reducing phosphorus levels by 25 percent each year – a job made increasingly difficult by the rising phosphorus concentrations in the water the farms receive from Lake Okeechobee.  More...

GASTON CANTENS: U.S. SUGAR DEAL WOULD DIVERT RESOURCES FROM PROJECTS THAT WILL SAVE THE EVERGLADES
Scripps Newspapers - August 11, 2009

Florida Crystals supports true Everglades restoration; we recognize it is crucial to the long-term survival of South Florida's sustainable agriculture. As an advocate for the construction of Everglades projects, we were compelled to challenge the South Florida Water Management District's bond validation to finance its purchase of U.S. Sugar's lands. It is a gross misuse of public funds and a departure from the Everglades restoration plan the state and federal governments and all other interested stakeholders, including farmers, have been working toward for more than a decade. The proposed deal is a roadblock to the construction of projects that would have meaningful restoration results. More...

ASK MORE QUESTIONS BEFORE BUYING U.S. SUGAR LAND
Miami Herald - August 11, 2009

One cannot overstate the decline of the Everglades, Florida Bay and Lake Okeechobee. Congress' failure to fund the 50-percent federal share of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Project (CERP) approved in 2000 put restoration efforts eight years behind schedule. The only successful restoration effort to date is phosphorus removal from the Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA) flows into the Everglades. No one questions the urgent need to get restoration under way. The question is whether the unilateral decision to purchase U.S. Sugar lands advances restoration. We are all tempted by once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. Responsible people ask: "Do I need what is offered? What must I give up? Should I check with my partners?" More...

FLORIDA CRYSTALS SUPPORTS TRUE EVERGLADES RESTORATION
Press Release - August 6, 2009

Florida Crystals has supported and continues to support true Everglades restoration. We recognize that restoration of the Everglades is critical for long-term sustainable agriculture in South Florida.  As an advocate for true Everglades restoration, we were compelled to challenge, along with the Miccosukee Tribe of Indians, the proposed bond validation to finance the acquisition of U.S. Sugar's lands, because it is a gross misuse of public funds and a departure from the Everglades restoration plan the state and federal governments and all other interested stakeholders, including farmers, have been working toward for more than a decade.  The proposed deal is a substantial road block to the implementation of projects that would have a meaningful impact on restoration. More...

EDITORIAL WRONG ABOUT CHIEF SOURCE OF LAKE POLLUTION
Fort Myers News-Press - July 29, 2009

You are right to warn your readers about the pollution of Lake Okeechobee with phosphorus-enriched stormwater; the rapidly declining condition of the Lake is one of Florida's critical environmental problems. However, your June 23 editorial and cartoon attributing the pollution to backpumping of farm fields seriously misinforms your readers. South Florida Water Management District records for 2003-08 show an average of 97 percent of the annual phosphorus load to Lake Okeechobee came from the watersheds north of the Lake. The toilet in your cartoon is actually flushing into the Lake the polluted stormwater from developments all the way to Orlando. More...

POWER FOR THE TAKING
South Florida Sun-Sentinel - July 12, 2009

For 12 years now, Florida Crystals -- the sugar behemoth -- has been producing electricity from its own sugar cane waste in western Palm Beach County. Its Okeelanta plant powers the company's sugar mill and refinery at its 155,000 acre-farm complex and sells surplus energy to Florida Power & Light and other utilities. "We grow electricity," quipped Florida Crystals' vice president Gaston Cantens, with a smile. "Not just sugar." More...

OBAMA ENERGY POLICY: CURE FOR OIL ADDICTION?
Tampa Tribune - November 21, 2008

Nearly 30 states, including Florida, are forging plans to boost renewable energy and slash greenhouse gases. Business leaders nationwide have called for a clear, nationwide policy. A political consensus has emerged in Washington that something must be done... The business lobby, once a reliably monolithic opponent to clean-energy rules, has fragmented. Where some businesses still flatly oppose climate legislation, some have shifted gears to support "reasonable" goals. Others, like Florida Crystals, have joined forces with the environmental community in calling for strong renewable targets. More...

UF RESEARCH MINES WASTE FOR ETHANOL PRODUCTION
Tampa Tribune - November 16, 2008

Inside his bright, new laboratory at the University of Florida, researcher Lonnie Ingram is trying to build a better bug. That's what scientists and others call the microscopic organisms they are counting on to create a new U.S.-based fuel industry free of ties to foreign oil producers. More than 20 years ago, Ingram and other UF researchers genetically engineered a bacterium that could turn common grasses, agricultural waste and wood chips into ethanol for our cars. Called cellulosic ethanol, it is an alternative to ethanol made from corn, which has lost favor because it uses land also needed for food crops... He's at the center of UF's plans to build Florida's first ethanol plant on land owned by Florida Crystals sugar company near Lake Okeechobee. More...

FLORIDA CRYSTALS' GREEN PROGRAM A SWEET DEAL

LINES IN THE WATER
Florida Trend - November 1, 2008

With the 8-year-old, much-ballyhooed comprehensive plan (CERP) to save the Everglades mired in its own intricacies, Gov. Charlie Crist's billion-dollar-plus impulse bid for U.S. Sugar Corp.'s lands has generated a surge of optimism... Whatever deal emerges will have to take Florida Crystals into account. Florida Crystals today is one of the most sophisticated, competitively run agricultural operations in the state if not the country. For power, its mill and operations consume sugar cane and wood waste in the largest biomass power plant in the country. Between the use of biomass and cane's consumption of carbon, the company has virtually no net carbon emissions. It's also working on a biomass-to-ethanol plant.  More...

A COMPANY SERVES AS ROLE MODEL

Another company is Florida Crystals south of Lake Okeechobee, one of the largest sugar companies in the nation and manufacturer of the world's first and only certified Carbonfree® natural and organic sugar products. More than a decade ago, Florida Crystals built North America's largest biomass power plant, located in South Florida. More...

2 FLORIDA PROFESSORS, SUGAR PRODUCER TEAM UP ON ETHANOL PLANT
Miami Herald - October 15, 2008

Scientists at the University of Florida and Florida International University are moving ahead with plans to build the state's first cellulosic ethanol plant on land belonging to sugar giant Florida Crystals. It would be the state's most ambitious biofuels project using technology that has only been used on a couple of small pilot projects around the country. If successful, it could help unleash a powerful new energy production tool, and pave the way for Florida's sugar growers to become an energy powerhouse. More...  **Watch video here.

CAN WASTE BECOME FUEL?
Tampa Tribune - October 12, 2008

GASTON CANTENS: FACE THE FACTS... AND DON'T BLAME 'SUGAR' FOR ALL THE ST. LUCIE RIVER PROBLEMS
Treasure Coast Newspapers - September 30, 2008

The recent column by Rich Campbell ("Not-so-sugar-coated advice for Ed Ciampi," Sept. 25) is a great example of not allowing facts to get in the way of a good story — a novel that is. It is unfortunate environmental and other interest groups have distorted the facts about the sugar industry and its supposed impact on the Everglades, thereby neglecting the development of real solutions.

Despite a statewide push for more renewable energy, Florida Crystals says it is running into opposition from utility companies and state regulators. More...

COLLIER COLLECTS OVER 515 TONS OF YARD WASTE FROM TROPICAL STORM FAY DAMAGE
Naples Daily News - September 4, 2008

Small trees and tree limbs, palm fronds, shrubs and other bits and pieces of yard waste brought down or uprooted by Tropical Storm Fay's reported 60 mph winds are being collected and transported to a staging site at the Collier County Landfill.
