Ituiutaba is a red ceramic factory located in the State of Minas Gerais. Up until 2008, the factory used native firewood taken for the Cerrado biome as fuel for its kilns. The factory used to use 20,000 m3 of native firewood per year to produce 15,000 tons of ceramic items such as bricks and tiles.
With a view to reducing their environmental impact, Ituiutaba factory began a carbon project consisting of replacing non-renewable fuel (native firewood), for renewable biomasses, such as sawdust and wood chips.
This initiative reduces atmospheric carbon emissions as well as acting to benefit the local community and improve work conditions for employees.Download PDF
