Faced with the challenges of developing the electricity sector, players debate how to modernize and encourage new sources, such as the generation of solar energy.
Brazil reached the historic milestone of 9 GW of operational power in large photovoltaic plants and small and medium systems. The data are from the Brazilian Association of Photovoltaic Solar Energy (Absolar) indicating that the source has brought more than R$ 46 billion in investments and 270,000 new jobs in the country.
The generation of energy from biomass has a current installed capacity of 15,604 MW, representing 9% of the national electrical matrix. With 578 thermoelectric plants, this source is in fourth place, behind hydro, wind and natural gas.
All of this material can be used to generate energy. One of the benefits of this use is the diversification of the energy matrix, in addition to being a solution to part of the waste problem in urban centers.
In the last decades, the intensification of human activities has increased the production of waste, creating a serious problem for public administrations in the correct accomplishment of this disposal. At the same time, technological and industrial development has caused greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to reach alarming levels.
With a high energy demand, Brazil is looking for new ways to generate energy, and the extraction of biogas from landfills is one of those options.
Do you know what waste fuel is? The CDR is a fuel derived from materials that cannot be used in the biodigestion process, and are used to feed industrial ovens. This type of garbage is crushed in specific machines, managing to reuse everything that is neither organic nor recyclable.
The adoption of an ESG agenda in companies brings advantages, such as improved reputation, greater profitability and improved valuation over time.
