Irmãos Fredi ceramic factory, located in Presidente Epitácio municipality, São Paulo State, produces bricks and construction blocks for the local civil construction market. Up until 2006, the factory used firewood from the surrounding Cerrado biome to feed its kilns, producing one million ceramic pieces per month. As of 2006, the Management opted for more sustainable production methods, investing in fuel switching equipment.
Since then, the kilns have been fuelled with renewable biomass, allowing the factory to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions and generate carbon credits. The factory implements sustainable development and social investment actions, improving working conditions for the 64 employees’ as well as quality of life for the surrounding community.Download PDF
