October: Turbimaq’ s 42 years

The month of October is commemorative here at Turbimaq: it's the month of your birthday!!!
This year the company celebrates 42 years of history.

In October of 1976, TURBIMAQ was born in Piracicaba, in the countryside of São Paulo - Brazil , a 100% national capital company founded by entrepreneurs, with deep knowledge of the sugar and alcohol sector who bet on the growth of this sector.

Founded in its current address, in the city of Piracicaba, one of the most important sugarcane poles in Brazil, TURBIMAQ started its activities in a small 10x30m shed, offering maintenance services in steam turbines, in the recovery and manufacture of bearings coated with Patent metal. For this, it counted on a single ROMI MVI lathe and a self-made mineral coal forge.

Over the years, TURBIMAQ realized that its clients needed more steam savings in the already installed turbines, so in a pioneering way, TURBIMAQ was dedicated to study and develop the project that was called Multivalve for the existing turbines. The first Multivalve was installed in a turbine of Bom Jesus Plant – Rio das Pedras – SP, obtaining excellent results.

Since then, many other projects have been developed with the aim of implementing the manufacturing and maintenance process in turbo-machines of the most diverse brands and models, with the latest technology, high quality and technical reliability, so that the TURBIMAQ brand was strengthened and consolidated, not only in Piracicaba, but throughout Brazil and abroad, always with the development and use of new technologies for steam turbines and the provision of services with excellence.TURBIMAQ does not only seek new technologies for turbines, but also to provide good quality of life and well-being to its employees and the community, at all times having as guideline environmental responsibility.

Bolivia creates Super Ethanol 92

The Bolivian government invests in ethanol to improve the quality of gasoline. From mid-October, service stations will begin to commercialize Super Ethanol 92 fuel with gasoline and ethanol.
The new fuel was officially created on September 15 with the signing of the Law on Additives of Plant Origin, implemented with the objective of gradually reducing the import of gasoline and diesel.
The 92 of the Super Ethanol indicates that, with it, the gas happens to have 92 octanas*, of better quality and greater yield. With the new product, the engines tend to work less, the life of the vehicle increases with the use of less gasoline.

"This project will allow the revitalization of the sector and the economy in general, by generating 15 thousand direct jobs at least 12 thousand indirect, thus contributing to the reduction of unemployment by 0.8 percentage point," says Luiz Fernando Barbery Paz, president of the sugar-energy company Ingenio Agroindustrial de Cañeros S / A (Unagro), with production unit in Santa Cruz.
Law 303 / 2017-2018, signed on September 15 by the president of the Plurinational State of Bolivia, Evo Morales, focuses on the gradual reduction of imports of fossil fuels and aims to use excess ethanol in the production of sugar and ethanol to process it and to obtain anhydrous, to be used as an additive for the production of higher yield gasoline.

In a press report from Bolivia, Susy Dorado, manager of the Bolivian Association of Suppliers (Asosur), said that the new fuel will be commercialized from October 15.
The amount of the mixture depends on the Government's rule that should be released later this week, although the trend is to add 12% of anhydrous to gasoline.

* Octane: Octane is the measure of resistance of the fuel to the pressure it undergoes within the combustion chamber of the engine. That is, it is the ability it has to withstand, in combination with air, to increase pressure and temperature without detonating (this without the spark plug has been triggered by the ignition system). The higher the octane, the higher will be the fuel's resistance to detonation.

Turbimaq at CIBIO 2018

This week, from September 4 to 6, Turbimaq will be participating in CIBIO 2018, in Curitiba – Paraná – Brazil.

The CIBIO (in Portuguese) - International Biomass Congress is an annual event that counts with the support of the main associations and entities related to the Biomass sector in Brazil and abroad. The Congress has a fundamental role in this new phase of the Brazilian Energy Matrix, where the search for clean technologies for energy generation is urgent to ensure the future and growth of the country.
In the midst of this search for new alternatives to generate energy, we have agreements and commitments signed by Brazil with other countries, with the aim of reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere. This scenario increases the need for the search of new and effective Clean Energy Technologies that can meet the growing demand for consumption.

The challenges are great given that average energy consumption has increased a lot in recent years. Thermal and electrical generation with Biomass has helped Brazil to grow and monitor the main technologies available in the world.
The CIBIO is the best opportunity to discuss the new directions and trends of the sector, as well as an excellent opportunity to present new technologies, research presented by the Academic and Productive sectors that together are the necessary forces for this long awaited change.

US President Donald Trump and EU boss Jean-Claude Juncker announced an agreement on Wednesday (25) to begin negotiations for a "zero tariff" trade environment. The settlement is a significant turnaround to cool the trade dispute between the two economic powers.
For experts, if on the one hand the truce opens space for the global economy to maintain growth, on the other threat the agribusiness of Brazil and the negotiations of the agreement between the European Union and Mercosur.

Among Trump and Juncker's measures is Europe's commitment to buy more US soybeans.
"They will start almost immediately," Trump said, referring to the promise of buying "too much soy" by the Europeans.
"We can import more soy from the US, and that will be done," said Juncker, who chairs the European Commission, the EU's executive arm, during the announcement of the agreement.

In the last six harvests, Brazil was the main supplier of soybeans to Europe. That may change if the promise made this Wednesday is fulfilled.
The issue surrounding Mercosur is more complex.

The first impression of the Brazilian government is that the open negotiation by Trump and Juncker should not hurt the conversations between the blocs.
The debate between the European Union and Mercosur is in the final stretch, and countries are expected to reach agreement at a meeting scheduled for September in Uruguay.
Some experts, however, fear exactly the opposite: that an approximation between Americans and Europeans represents the newest threat to the agreement signed more than 20 years ago between Mercosur and the European bloc.

In any case, the reduction in trade tension between the two largest economies in the world was celebrated by experts and should help global growth. "The global economy can only benefit from this," said IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde.

For now, no fare has been suspended or eliminated. The conversations are only in the beginning.

The number of workers in sugarcane mills in Brazil is lower, but the quality of jobs grows. This is what a study carried out by researchers from Esalq / USP and the Center for Advanced Studies in Applied Economics (Cepea, in portuguese) reveals.
The study points out that although the number of workers in the sugar-energy sector fell between 2008 and 2016, the quality of jobs in the sector grew during this period.

In the period evaluated, the researchers found an increase in the proportion of workers in the sugar-energy sector with higher education compared to the total number of jobs and also a significant increase in real wages.
Among other factors, this scenario is a result of the process of mechanization of the harvest, notably in the Center-South region of Brazil.

According to researchers from Cepea and Esalq / USP, this technological change brought important evolutions, such as the possibility of better quality jobs and salary gains, which were also verified among lower qualified workers.
The study also highlights the effects of the crisis in the sugarcane chain between 2009 and 2016, which impacted mainly on the reduction of industrial jobs, due to the closure of mills in the period.

The executive president of Plural (an association that brings together the fuel distributors, formerly Sindicom, Leonardo Gadotti, reiterated the entity's position that the approval of the draft legislative decree allowing the direct sale of ethanol by producers to non- will generate lower pump prices.
"It's a fallacy, this view that the product will come cheap. Studies do not show that," says Gadotti. "There would be loss of quality control and process control."

The plenary of the Chamber of Deputies rejected on Wednesday night, the urgency of the draft legislative decree that allows the direct sale of ethanol by the producers to the fuel stations. There were 257 votes in favor of urgency, but there were only 213 votes. 98 others voted no and three abstained.
In the Senate, it was approved by 47 votes in favor and only 2 against. "It's worrying a project of this nature that moves the whole sector. It's a measure of election, I have no doubt," he says. "Why an emergency measure in such an important project, in a process in which nobody is heard?".
"Why the rush? That is the big question? Politician has to discuss education, which is with a horrible level, health, social security," said Gadotti.
In Brasilia, Plural has been working to clarify that approval could create a "tax hole." "Why does the congress close its eyes at such a difficult time for collection?" He asks.

The entity requests that the discussion involve a control in the collection of taxes. "You have to pay taxes so that you do not create unfair competition," he says.
According to Plural, the evasion related to hydrated ethanol is estimated at R $ 3 billion per year. "The biggest losers are the States."
Gadotti also believes that the role of the National Agency for Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels (ANP, in portuguese) was forgotten in the discussion. "The agency has an obligation to regulate, not Congress."

Solar energy in Brazil surpassed the 1.5 Gigawatts of installed capacity and is expected to close the year with 2.4 GW, according to the Brazilian Association of Solar Photovoltaic Energy (Absolar).
A year ago, the solar source supplied about 60 thousand homes, number that jumped to 633 thousand residences in 2018.

Altogether there are 30,039 installed systems of distributed generation in the Country, totaling R $ 2.1 billion in investments since 2012.
In addition to the centralized distributed generation, the investments are of R $ 6 billion, and by the end of 2018 should reach R $ 20 billion, informed the president of Absolar, Rodrigo Sauaia.
The executive said that Brazil is already included in the group of 30 countries with more than 1 GW installed in solar energy, although the source represents only 1% of the total generation, but could reach 10% in 2030, according to studies by the Company. Energy Research (EPE), stressed Sauaia.
According to Absolar, of every megawatt of energy generated between 25 and 30 jobs are created and Brazil today counts more than 20 thousand direct and indirect jobs in the sector.
Residential consumers are the ones that most seek the solar source, with 77.4% of the total installed systems in the country, followed by the commerce and services sectors, with 16%; rural consumers, with 3.2% and industries, with 2.4%.
The factors that have contributed to the rapid growth of solar energy in Brazil, according to Absolar was the 75% reduction in the price of solar energy in the last 10 years and the strong growth in the price of electric energy, which since 2012 rose 499% according to the Ministry of Mines and Energy.
In addition to the price, BNDES (The National Development Bank) recently announced a line to finance individuals to have access to distributed solar energy, which should further boost the sector.
