PROJECT DESCRIPTION

O Projeto de Compostagem em Santa Catarina é um programa de sustentabilidade junto a 13 granjas de confinamento de suínos no Brasil, com o objetivo de melhorar os sistemas de manejo de dejetos animais, reduzir as emissões de gases de efeito estufa (GEE) e melhorar as condições devida da população nos locais do projeto. O objetivo deste projeto é reduzir as emissões de GEE associadas ao manejo de dejetos de suínos e contribuir para o desenvolvimento sustentável. Com o projeto de carbono, pequenos produtores rurais de suínos catarinenses passam a fazer parte do mercado internacional de carbono.

PROTECTING WATER BODIES

After the project, all the swine manure is transformed into a high quality and nutrient-rich organic compost, used by producers for the cultivation of grains and vegetables or for sale to the community. Now it is no longer necessary to use water to dilute waste, nor to disperse it in the lands of the region, which used to contaminate the water bodies and soil. There are thirteen families that adhered to more modern and sustainable technologies.

SOCIALCARBON Standard Performance

The hexagon demonstrates the continuous improvement of the project during all verification periods. The Social Carbon Standard encourages the reinvestment of a percentage of the income from the carbon credits in socioenvironmental benefits, in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Social Carbon: far beyond carbon, it is social equality.

“The project has everything to work, it is a smart way to contribute to nature, not to be polluting and producing the meat that everyone needs.”

— Mr. Secco (Rural producer)
