We are an engineering company with a multidisciplinary dimension, created with the aim to bring new solutions and technologies for the treatment, management and appropriate final disposal of municipal solid waste to Brazil.
Based on the experience and know-how of our team, we develop innovative solutions for the management of waste and also plan, execute and operate facilities for treatment and processing of household waste. Therefore, we contribute to the minimization of environmental impacts caused by an inappropriate disposal.
One of our priorities is to provide ideas in order to make the planet cleaner throughout projects for the treatment of municipal waste, aiming to preserve our natural resources.
Since our work is guided by the precepts of sustainable development for the benefit of society, we enter into the Green Economy Market.
Our assumption is the application of innovation in order to achieve sustainability in waste treatment plants.
The modification of consumption habits, industrialization, urbanization and population growth are factors which directly influence the quantity and composition of waste. In recent decades, mainly due to the increase of volume and variety of generated waste, the traditional forms of final disposal as well as inappropriate management reached their limits. Based on this reality, the development of effective solutions is necessary and accessible through study and research, in order to bring effective results and low cost. The development of technologies capable of mitigating the social and environmental impacts caused by inadequate or traditional waste management.
Our work aims to interact in a single network technology and another tools for waste management, such as selective collection, environmental education and systems monitoring. This sense of unity is able to wake us up to individual responsibilities and for the power of transformation of our actions.
Our mission is to offer innovative solutions for the utilization of waste as an alternative resource, stimulate the economy and contribute to the protection of the environment.
