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.

Lei PONTE e PATEN: fundamentos para a sustentabilidade energética do Brasil

PONTE and PATEN Law: foundations for energy sustainability in Brazil

The path to energy sustainability is paved by innovation and proactive legislation. In Brazil, this path takes on definitive contours with the processing of Bill (PL) No. 327 of 2021, known as the National Energy Transition Policy (PONTE), and the attached PL No. 5,174/2023, which establishes the Energy Acceleration Program Energy Transition (PATEN)

Brasil alcança recorde na redução de carbono com energia limpa em uma década

Brazil achieves record carbon reduction with clean energy in a decade

In the Brazilian energy scenario, the year 2023 marked a historic turning point, characterized by the lowest rate of carbon emissions in electrical generation in the last eleven years. This achievement not only highlights Brazil's commitment to global environmental goals, but also highlights the growing influence of renewable sources in the national energy matrix. Driven by a diversified generation model, the country managed to reach a surprising rate, where 93% of the electricity generated comes from renewable sources, including hydroelectric, wind, solar and biomass.
