Eucalyptus Forest Residues Potential to Mitigate GHG Emissions in Brazil: a case Study for São Paulo and its Interface with Low-carbon Policies

Short Introductive summary

Guilherme Pessoa Nogueira is enrolled in the Ph.D. Program of Bioenergy at University of Campinas (UNICAMP), Brazil, with his thesis defense scheduled for July 2022. His research is developed at the Interdisciplinary Center of Energy Planning (NIPE) at UNICAMP. His Ph.D. project aims to evaluate the technical feasibility and environmental sustainability of using alternative biomasses, such as sugarcane straw and eucalyptus forest residues, in different biorefinery process routes, for bioenergy and biochemicals production. Considering the Brazilian energy context, the use of such harvest residues is a promising approach towards economy’s decarbonization and energy transition. The designed and simulated biorefinery routes were adapted into inventories for the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), estimating potential environmental impacts, considering a regional scale in São Paulo state.

Presenter's biography

I am a chemical engineer, currently working on my Ph.D. with biorefinery process design and simulation, associated with environmental impact evaluation through the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) tool. I have interest in bioenergy and biofuels in general, specially in engineering and sustainability.
