Veolia launches three biomethane projects in Brazil

October 18, 2021 |

In Brazil, Veolia has brought on stream three new Thermoelectric Power Plants in Brazil located in Iperó, Metropolitan region of Sorocaba, in São Paulo and in Biguaçu, province of Santa Catarina, in three of its the sanitary landfills operated in the country. These units will produce 12,400 kW of renewable electricity from biogas produced by the decomposition of organic waste, allowing to meet the electricity and heating needs of a city of around 42,000 inhabitants in Brazil.

Converting this previously unused biogas into energy contributes to better recovery of waste and therefore strengthens the ecological impact of this activity. Veolia is also focusing on the valorization of this energy resource to increase the share of renewable energy in the electricity mix and thus reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
