    Context:

    Biogenic emissions are emissions related to the natural carbon cycle, as well as those resulting from combustion, harvesting, digestion, fermentation, decomposition, or processing of bio-based materials.

    1.The indicator includes the following gases: carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), hydrofluocarbons (HFCs) and perfluorocarbons (PFCs).

    Additional information:

    The calculation of biogenic emissions included the consumption of biomass, black liquor, and methanol for power generation; heat and steam in industrial units; and of renewable fuels, mainly in road operations, such as consumption of ethanol, biodiesel mixed in diesel, and ethanol mixed in gasoline. The emission factors for these inputs in Brazil are released annually by the Brazilian GHG Protocol Program. In 2020 the consumption of biomass was lower, leading to a reduction in biogenic emissions.
