Carlos Driemeier is a research scientist at the Brazilian Bioethanol Science and Technology Laboratory (CTBE), which integrates the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM). Concluded bachelor (2004) and doctorate (2008) degrees in Physics from Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, with a research intern period at the University of Texas. Held a post-doctorate (2009) in photovoltaic systems at the Institute of Energy and Environment from the University of São Paulo. Works mainly with Condensed Matter Physics, specifically with surfaces, interfaces, physical chemistry of water, crystallography, and image analysis. Recent research has focused on the multiscale architecture of lignocellulosic biomass and its influence in biomass processing. Has a broad interest in data-intensive analyses, biomass valorization technologies, renewable energies, and the transformation of the global energy system. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
The woody, non-edible fraction of plants, the so-called lignocellulose, is a vast renewable resource that is nonetheless underexploited. Lignocelluloses have ordered - the cellulose nanocrystals - as well as disordered components, the latter made of hemicelluloses, lignin e fractions of cellulose. The supramolecular arrangements of the disordered components are poorly understood. This p...

Sugarcane is the main energetic biomass cultivated in Brazil. The inorganic components present in sugarcane bagasse and straw have been shown to hinder the energetic use of the biomass. Historically, mineral components have caused problems in the boilers used in biomass combustion and, more recently, minerals have created problems in the production of cellulosic (2G) ethanol. This proje...
Providing basic energy services for Brazilian isolated communities is a great challenge because its geographic isolation imposes significant logistic costs for fuel supply in addition to the unviable extension of conventional electricity grids. Among the communities' energetic needs, we highlight refrigeration for conservation of food and, in particular, fish produced by them. In remote...
