CLEANER PRODUCTION

After much investment, today Dori can truly claim to have achieved the goal of cleaner production. All the fuel utilized is produced in-house through eucalyptus plantations on the Sítio Ouro Verde farm. The ashes from eucalyptus burning are used as fertilizer for planting, as they are rich in potassium and phosphorous. Furthermore, all of Dori’s waste water is treated and reused for irrigation of the plantations. Juliano, the company’s environmental chemist, said that Dori is “a company which really makes sustainability one of the pillars of its growth!”.

Project Description

Dori Alimentos, is a foods company based in São Paulo State, producing peanuts, candy, and other confectionery.

For decades, the company used heavy crude oil to run its boilers, which is a copious emitter of greenhouse gases.

In 2006, making a determined effort to reduce its environmental impact, Dori switched from fossil fuels to renewable biomasses, which, apart from cutting emissions, genereates carbon credits and allows for cleaner production.
