Mato Grosso do Sul announces expansion with investments in biomethane plants.

Mato Grosso do Sul enters the new frontier of renewable energy and energy transition with the expansion of investments in biomethane plants. In addition to the production of clean energy from animal waste such as pigs and cattle, biomethane obtained from vinasse, which is a by-product of sugar cane, gains another chapter.

Yesterday (10), Atvos announced an investment of R$350 million in a biomethane plant in Nova Alvorada do Sul . The unit will use vinasse and filter cake as inputs, waste resulting from the sugarcane production chain, will occupy an area of ​​150 thousand square meters and will have an installed capacity of 28 million cubic meters of biomethane.

This will be the second unit in the sugar-energy sector to invest in this type of energy in Mato Grosso do Sul. The first plant was launched by Adecoagro in Ivinhema, which is already doubling its production capacity.

“The State regulated biomethane, we are one of the first to do this. MSGás issued a notice to purchase the product. We produce biomethane in pig farming, at Adecoagro and now we are going to reduce the ICMS rate for biomethane. All of this is aimed at stimulating this market, it is a great frontier, an energy transition”, highlighted the Secretary of State for Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation (Semadesc), Jaime Verruck.

In addition to the sugar-energy sector, biomethane production is already widely carried out in pig farming. One of the prominent projects is SF Agropecuária in Brasilândia, which produces more than 180 thousand pigs per year and carries out the complete production cycle.

The property is one of the pioneers in the use of pig waste to supply energy through distributed generation, and has several activities and a diversified portfolio.
