The Guaraí, Itabira and Santa Izabel Ceramic factories, located in the Itaboraí municipality of Rio de Janeiro state, previously used fuel oil to fire its ceramic products.

Furthermore, it is a highly polluting fuel and contributes significantly to global warming. Faced with this challenge, the ceramic factories decided to switch from oil to renewable biomass (a clean energy source) as fuel.
