    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:

    There was an increase in biogenic emissions due to the increased consumption of renewable fuels, mainly in road operations, such as the 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.

    The mixture of Biodiesel in Diesel was 11.3% in 2020 and 10.3% in 2019. The mixture of ethanol in gasoline remained at 27%.
