Velotex is a brick factory located in Sergipe State, North-eastern Brazil. The factory previously used native firewood from the caatinga, a uniquely Brazilian biome, as fuel to produce its ceramic pieces. In order to reduce its environmental impacts, in 2007, the factory opted for more sustainable production methods by ceasing its use of native wood and investing in equipment for use of biomass fuel, such as coconut husks, in its kilns.
This switch allowed atmospheric GHG emissions to be reduced and carbon credits to be generated. Furthermore, since implementing the project, the factory has invested in modernization, generating benefits for the surrounding community.Download PDF
