Aratu Fuel Switch Project

DOW Chemical Company

The Aratu Biomass Cogeneration Fuel Switch Project was developed by strategic partners Energias Renováveis do Brasil (ERB) and the Dow Chemical Company. Emissions reductions were realized through the switching from a natural gas fuel source to a biomass fuel source sourced from verified sustainable eucalyptus farms. The project was developed under the Dow-Rio 2016 Organizing Committee Carbon Partnership.
