Biomass

Brazil is a tropical country, rich in organic resources which are
ideal for energy usage.

These resources include wood from planted forests, eucalyptus
branches and bark, coconut shell, sugar cane bagasse, and other
agro-industrial residues, as well as peat - an organic material widely
found in Brazil. Peat is derived from the decomposition of vegetable
waste, and is the natural forerunner of coal.

Brazil is in a privileged position in terms of using renewable sources
of energy. An alternative source based on biomass technology
shows a significant growth, and today represents 3% of total
production.
