Brazil has more generation potential using sugar cane biomass

Nov 19, 2001 01:00 AM

Brazil has the potential to develop some 6,000 MW in generation projects using sugar cane biomass, Sao Paulo sugar cane association (Unica) advisor Onorio Kitayama said. This potential is far from fully exploited, Kitayama added, and so the sector supports a special program of incentives launched by the federal government aimed at companies generating electricity with biomass.

However, Kitayama said the federal government is acting too slowly and "this delay undermines confidence in relation to this type of electricity." Sao Paulo industries federation (FIESP) infrastructure department director Luiz Gonzaga Bertelli said the federal government has not provided clear guidelines to stimulate cogeneration with biomass. This is illustrated by the fact that out of 140 sugar processing plants, only 15 have power cogeneration.
