Shell and Cosan SA Industrio and Comercio, the world’s largest sugar producer have now  finalized a multi-billion dollar joint venture today for biofuels and sugar in Brazil, and in the process gave the world of biofuel startups a reason to get out of bed tomorrow.

Under the deal, Shell will contribute close to $2 billion dollars, 2,740 service stations, its ongoing activities in jet fuel, and its investments in Codexis (Shell owns 15 percent of that company) and Iogen Energy, another biofuel company. Cosan, for its part, will contribute 23 sugar mills and more than 1,700 service stations. The memorandum of understanding was first signed in Feburary.
