Bioelectricity generation grows 5% in Brazil

The bioelectricity offer by the sugar-energy sector to the National Integrated System (SIN) grew 5% in the first half of this year. According to the bioelectricity survey released by the Brazilian Sugarcane Industry Association (UNICA), it is estimated that the generation of 8,400 GWh of renewable energy has avoided the emission of 2.8 million tons of CO2. To have a similar effect it would be necessary to cultivate more than 20 million native trees over 20 years.
