Brazil – Biomass Plant

Development of a wood-fuelled biomass plant

The State Environmental Protection Agency has issued a construction licence for a new biomass plant in Cambará do Sul, allowing work to start.

The facility will have the capacity to process over 700,000 tonnes of forestry and sawmill waste each year, producing 50 MW of electricity.

Belarus – Biogas Plants

Construction of three biogas plants

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) will be providing a US$11.3 million loan for the construction of two biogas plants in Belarus.

The plants will be situated in Brest and Minsk and will generate 23.6 GWh of clean energy each year.

Construction is expected to start in Spring, alongside another biogas plant in Brest which is being funded by a local bank. Operations are expected to begin by the end of 2019.
