The Start of the Brazilian Bioenergy Revolution

The only major, 100% Biomass-to-Power conference in Brazil

Biomass Power and Pellets is a one-stop-shop for understanding the intricacies of this market and fostering the critical local business connections that will drive your entry into this important biomass and power market.

With primary energy consumption in Brazil increasing by over 30% in the last decade, Brazil is fast becoming one of the largest energy consumers in the world.

Brazil already has one of the largest bioelectrical outputs of any country. With around 5% of national electrical power generation already coming from bio-sources, it is estimated that this figure should rise to around 18% by 2021. With a strong reliance on hydropower, an increase in biomass-fired power offers a viable option to deal with the unpredictable rainfalls during dry seasons.

The opportunities in the Brazilian biomass power sector are clearly massive. The government is actively pursuing biomass cogeneration and waste-to-energy projects and furthermore, Brazil’s pioneering forestry sector offers massive potential to service the growing European industrial pellets market.

As the only major conference in Brazil focused exclusively on the biomass power and waste-to-energy sectors,Biomass Power and Pellets is a one-stop-shop for understanding the intricacies of this massive, growing market and for fostering the key local business connections that will drive your entry into and expansion within the biomass power sector in Brazil.

Over 250 high-level delegates and 50 industry-leading speakers will gather in Sao Paulo to discuss the key factors in the evolution on the sector.
