Milenium is a family company which produces bricks and tiles in the interior of Tocantins state. The Ceramic factory employs around 90 people to produce a million pieces per month.
30,000 m³/year of firewood used to be harvested from the surrounding biome to fuel the factory’s ovens. With the goal of reducing its environmental impact and modernize its technology, Milenium implemented a carbon project in 2007.
In this way, the factory stopped using native wood and began to supply its production with renewable biomass. Today, the company uses sawdust, rice husks and elephant grass to produce its pieces.
Besides reducing GHGs, the project enables investment in improving work conditions and generating benefits for the community, based on the extra income from sales of carbon credits.Download PDF
