Biometano e a Descarbonização
In summary, biomethane presents itself as a promising and sustainable alternative to the replacement of fossil fuels. Despite the initial challenge that involves the installation of the necessary infrastructure for its production and use, the potential benefits are considerable.
Biometano: Uma alternativa sustentável para o futuro energético do Brasil
Biomethane, a renewable fuel derived from organic waste, offers significant potential for Brazil to diversify its energy matrix while providing economic, social, and environmental benefits. By leveraging agricultural waste and animal manure as resources, biomethane production can reduce greenhouse gas emissions, support rural development, and improve energy security.
Fonte renovável bateu recorde em 2022 na geração de energia elétrica
In 2022, Brazil reached a record in the generation of electricity from renewable sources. Hydroelectric, wind, solar and biomass plants were responsible for 92% of the electricity produced in the country. In addition to being clean and inexhaustible, renewable sources are also more sustainable and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The transition to renewable energy is essential for decarbonization and reducing social impacts.
Quais as expectativas e tendências para o mercado de biogás?
What can be expected from the biogas market in 2023? The biogas sector is one of the most promising in the world energy sector and plays a key role in the economy of many countries. According to the International Energy Agency, biogas generation grew by around 20% between 2004 and 2017, and the trend is expected to continue in the coming years.
Conheça o potencial de exportação de biometano no país
Brazil still does not produce even 1% of its biomethane production potential, which can reach 100 million m³/day. Currently, there are ten biomethane plants in Brazil, located in Ceará, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Paraná, but the perspective is for growth, including for export.
Como as novas resoluções impactam o mercado de biogás e biometano nos próximos anos?
As there is no exclusive regulation for biogas and biomethane, historically, the Brazilian regulations that govern these markets have more connection with other fuels, such as ethanol and biodiesel than with natural gas. This occurred because the laws that dealt with gas dealt only with natural gas of fossil origin, excluding other sources.
