We were born in the renewable energy segment, working with clean electricity generation in Isolated Systems, located in the northern region of Brazil.
The Grupo BBF plants operate with biofuels (biodiesel and vegetable oil) and biomass from oil palm, serving more than 140,000 customers.
We are the only company that operates with B100 biodiesel to replace fossil diesel on a commercial scale in the Isolated Systems.

states with electricity generation in Isolated Systems
We generate clean, renewable electricity in the heart of the Amazon forest.
Our 25 thermoelectric plants in operation remove more than 106 million liters of fossil diesel per year and reduce the emission of about 250,000 tons of carbon equivalent from the Amazon atmosphere.
Our thermoelectric plants use biofuels produced by Grupo BBF to accelerate the decarbonization of the Amazon and guarantee the security of electricity supply in Isolated Systems.
We are proud to have more than 6,000 direct employees, more than 18,000 indirect employees and more than 450 family farmers. Together, we are caring for and transforming the Amazon region.

Our mission is to decarbonize the lung of the Amazon by making clean, renewable electricity available.
We generate electricity for more than 140,000 customers, removing more than 106 million liters of fossil diesel from the Amazon annually.
We operate in regions that are not connected to the National Interconnected System and our energy is generated from palm oil biodiesel.
In these communities there are small thermal power plants, most of which run on fossil diesel. We are pioneers in the generation of clean electric energy with biofuels, produced from oil palm.
Our business model is verticalized. We start by planting oil palm according to the zoning legislation, develop biofuels, and generate clean and renewable electric power.
We generate clean, renewable electricity for more than 140,000 customers in the northern region of Brazil.
Through the Energy Auction No. 02/2016, held by ANEEL, we serve 6 locations with more than 54,000 customers. Our 6 UTEs have a generating capacity of 13.2 MW.
We serve 4 municipalities in the state: Marechal Thaumaturgo, Porto Walter, Santa Rosa do Purus, and Jordão, with more than 46,000 customers. Our 4 UTEs have a generation capacity of 11.54 MW.
We have 12 UTEs with a generation capacity of 8.1 MW, serving more than 7,000 customers.
Our complete operating cycle: oil palm plantation, biofuel production and clean electricity generation. Our Hybrid TPP has a generating capacity of 17.9 MW, serving more than 31,000 customers.
