RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - The state of Paraná will be the first in Brazil to build an energy generation station through sewage and organic waste, a biogas plant that transforms waste into electricity to supply homes in the region.
The Environmental Institute of Paraná granted the license for the operation to the company CS Bioenergia. According to the company, the plant will be capable of producing 2.8 megawatts of electricity from garbage, supplying some 2,000 homes in the state.
