Barbosa is a ceramic factory producing bricks located in northern Brazil, in the municipality of São Miguel do Guamá (PA).
In the past, the factory used native Amazon firewood as fuel to produce its ceramic pieces. In order to change this situation, the factory switched to fuelling its kilns using exclusively renewable fuels, such as açaí seeds, Brazil nut shells and sawdust in 2007.
The fuel switch created reductions in atmospheric Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions, and enabled Barbosa to participate in the international carbon market.
Today, Barbosa factory generates carbon credits, and it reinvests the income from carbon credit sales into modernizing the factory and into benefits for the workers and the local community.Download PDF
