Project Brief

The project activity consists of ComBio Energia replacing fossil fuel-fired boilers by two renewable biomass ones to generate steam for Klabin S.A, a paper and pulp manufacturing company, where they are used in the paper production process. The fuel switch was carried out by ComBio Energia, a company whose main activity is the production and distribution of steam.

Eucalyptus woodchips is the main fuel together with other renewable biomasses such as bamboo and byproducts of sawmills and of trimming and pruning operations, are used to generate saturated steam in two 35 t/h boilers, totalizing 70t/h.

The fuel switch from residual fuel oil and diesel to renewable biomass is expected to reduce an average of 88.665 tCO2e per year during the first crediting period of the project. Therefore, GHG emission reductions equate to around 0.89 MtCO2e over the 10 years of the first crediting period.

Besides contributing to Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 13 – Climate Action, the project is expected to contribute to other SDGs: 7; 9 and 12.
