Do you know how WTE plants help the country's development? It is possible to say that on a global level, society is already aware of the importance of the correct disposal of waste. On a general level, governments and companies already recognize the value of these materials for energy generation, in addition to their environmental importance. After all, this type of process transforms useless materials into some by-product that returns to the production chain.

What is the importance of solar energy in the renovation of the energy matrix? Brazil entered the list of the ten countries that most installed solar energy systems in the world in 2020, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA).

Renewable energy sources are wind, solar, hydro and biomass, but despite being sustainable sources, their use still needs to be expanded. How is the use of renewable energy sources in Brazil and in the world? Historically, world energy production has always been based on fossil fuels, such as oil and coal. However, over the decades it was realized that these fuels were finite and that their use caused the greenhouse effect and aggravated global warming.
