Biopower Industry in Brazil – Analysis & Forecast 2018

Biopower Industry in Brazil – Analysis & Forecast 2018

Brazil is now one of the biggest biopower markets in the world, having an annual installed capacity of over 1,100 GW by the end of 2016. The driving factor behind the growth of the industry has been the large stockpile of biomass feedstock that Brazil has, including waste crops, sugarcane bagasse, organic material, etc. Compared to biomass, though, the Brazilian biogas capacity still remain quite small, primarily due to the fact that other conversion technologies are cheaper and at a more mature development stage.

With the government putting in place supportive regulations, the industry is expected to grow steadily, though it is facing stiff competition from wind power projects.

The Brazilian biopower industry has been witnessing steady growth in recent years and it is further expected that in the years to come, the government will boost its support mechanisms for the biopower industry.

Aruvian Research analyzes the Brazilian biopower industry in its in-depth research report Biopower Industry in Brazil – Analysis and Forecast 2018.

Biopower in Brazil – Analysis and Forecast 2018 begins with an introduction to biopower, covering the basics of biopower and how it can be used as an energy source. Conversion technologies such as anaerobic digestion, combustion, gasification, pyrolysis, etc., are touched upon.

We look at the global biopower industry through a brief profile, which includes an industry overview, statistics on the installed capacity of biopower and an analysis of biopower markets in Asia Pacific, North America, and Europe.

The biopower industry in Brazil is analyzed through an industry overview, installed capacity statistics, and electricity generation in the country from biopower feedstock. We also analyze the capital expenditure on biopower in Brazil and the industry investment. Regulatory framework governing the industry are also looked at.
