Brazil and biofuels, looking to the future

Brazil will see a major expansion in biodiesel (up to 28 mil. l/d by 2030), diesel made with vegetable oils (H-Bio) (up to 244 mil. l/d by 2030), and “sugarcane products” (i.e., bioethanol and combusting bagasse for power generation) in the country’s latest strategic energy plan, according to the Temas Blog. The Portugueseversion is here. The blog explains that there is a national debate about the energy mix, biofuels are not the only component by a long way, and that is good. It is also good to see that the share of wood and non-sustainable sources of energy is planned to fall in the energy mixture… of course, whether it does or not remains to be seen…

    Simon, thanks for commenting on my blog and for the mention here. I hope you visit often and feel free to comment often — all constructive feedback welcome at The Temas Blog! I’m glad to have found your blog, as I am very interested in the biofuels subject; it is an extremely hot topic in my area of interest, Latin America & the Caribbean (LAC). I plan to both subscribe to your feed and add you to the list of Temas Recommended Blogs.

    Best regards,
    Keith
