Located in the south of Minas Gerais state, approximately 180 km north of Rio de Janeiro, the installation at the Juiz de Fora power plant uses ethanol derived from sugarcane in a simple-cycle turbine with a total capacity of 87 MW. The plant has two aeroderivative GE LM6000 gas turbines installed, one of whose combustors has been modified by GE to enable the use of ethanol, making it dual-fuel with ethanol or natural gas. There will be five months of demonstration runs to validate the use of ethanol as an alternative fuel, as well as to ensure that emissions are within the expected limits. GE is providing the conversion technology, engineering and field support during conversion and commissioning. As the world’s second largest producer of ethanol and the world’s largest exporter, Brazil will benefit from incorporating ethanol into its thermal generation profile because of the abundant fuel supply, via renewableenergyworld.com

Se prevé que Brasil produzca un récord de 27.800 millones de litros de etanol en la temporada 2009/2010. El país comenzó su programa de biocombustibles hace 30 años y ahora obliga a mezclar un mínimo del 20 % de Etanol en la gasolina.
