Energia renovável a partir do biogás impulsiona a transição energética sustentável no Brasil

Renewable energy from biogas drives the sustainable energy transition in Brazil

Biogas is a source of renewable energy generated from the anaerobic decomposition of organic matter, such as agricultural waste, animal waste, urban organic waste and industrial effluents. This biological process, carried out by microorganisms, produces a mixture of gases, predominantly methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2). Biogas can be used to generate electricity, heat or be refined to become biomethane, a direct substitute for fossil natural gas.

A transição energética: substituindo o diesel por energias renováveis

The energy transition: replacing diesel with renewable energy

In the current context, replacing diesel with renewable energy sources is an urgent need and an opportunity to mitigate the effects of climate change. Diesel, a fossil fuel, is a major emitter of greenhouse gases (GHGs), contributing significantly to global warming. The transition to renewable energy is, therefore, a strategic action to reduce GHG emissions and move towards a more sustainable and ecological economy.
