This paper presents the main technical and economic issues related to the study of a rice husk small-scale thermal power generation from a Southern Brazilian Rice Processing Cooperative Agriculture. In this study, a case study energy cogeneration associated with rice processing is presented with the estimated cost of operation and maintenance of a small pilot plant. It is also considered the impact of carbon credits sale inflow funds, which can reduce production costs related to electricity consumption. It will be presented also that the possibility of selling carbon credits, increases the project economic viability by 50%, allowing a reduction in the investment return time by 20%
