The 2nd International Conference on Environmental Sustainability, Development, and Protection (ICESDP’17) aims to become the leading annual conference in fields related to environmental sustainability, development and protection. The goal of ICESDP’17 is to gather scholars from all over the world to present advances in the relevant fields and to foster an environment conducive to exchanging ideas and information. This conference will also provide an ideal environment to develop new collaborations and meet experts on the fundamentals, applications, and products of the mentioned fields.

Abstract – This paper demonstrates the possibility of adaptation of exotic plants, in Brazil, as an alternative for sustainable production of biomass and metabolic compounds. It is a breeding research for the ecotype Maguey do Cerrado that aims to obtain biomass and ethanol through bioprocesses that can be reproduced in an industrial scale. Through a longitudinal study done between the years 1998 and 2015, pre-breeding and breeding activities were conducted and a micromodel for growing Maguey do Cerrado – a morphological variety of the Salmiana section of the Agave genus grown in the Cerrado region of Goiás, Central- West region of Brazil – was established. Results: in 2016 the differentiation characteristics of the ecotype, which has undergone a process of humanization, adaptation to the environment and domestication, were described. The structural and functional modifications recorded were considered efficient adaptation strategies since, despite the hydric deficit of the region, the plants showed excellent physical development, demarcated maturation cycles, efficient propagation and sap production with and industrial potential.
