Eldorado inaugurates a thermoelectric powered by eucalyptus biomass

Eldorado Brasil has started the operation of its first thermoelectric plant, powered by biomass and with the capacity to produce enough energy to supply a city with 700,000 inhabitants. The unit, named Onça Pintada, has received investments of around R$ 400 million ($71.5 mm), made with own resources and uses raw material such as stumps and roots of eucalyptus harvested for cellulose production. The plant will operate within the Eldorado Brasil cellulose plant complex, in Três Lagoas (MS). The plant will have the capacity to generate 432,000 MWh per year.
