Cross-energy management: Consumption in line with production

Alternative methods enable the use of biomass and fossil fuel substitution


The wide availability of biomass in Brazil is encouraging the adoption of sustainable alternatives for energy generation, such as the technologies for biomass gasification and torrefaction.

Torrefaction is a continuous production process capable of generating solid, high-calorific value biofuels such as biocoal from different types of biomass, which can be easily stored and has versatile industrial applications.

Gasification can convert charcoal into syngas used for power generation or for synthesizing biochemicals and biofuels such as methanol and natural gas substitute.
