This constitutes another important step towards putting Riopele's global sustainability strategy into practice: a biomass power plant with a steam production capacity of 16 t/h, and carbon neutral given its consumption of waste forestry biomass as fuel.
"This is an important project for Riopele, involving investment of over €4 million," reveals José Alexandre Oliveira. According to the Chairman of Riopele, "this plant will produce most of the steam consumed at the company (around 90%)". In addition, "it will allow us to reduce natural gas consumption by approximately 70%".
Focused on meeting environmental challenges, Riopele will continue to invest in alternative energy sources in order to become operationally carbon neutral by 2027 as announced in its roadmap for sustainability.
