Enviroment

Effluent Treatment Plant:

The complex has an Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP) designed to treat 600 m3/day of waste water with high organic load, which is generated in the production processes of vegetable oil extraction and biodiesel making.

 

The process in the ETP involves two treatments:

 

A. Removal of organic matter by chemical methods, in a decanter with a dosage of coagulants and flocculants.

B. The second step is conducted in an Aerobic Biological Reactor of 4000 m3 capacity, through a direct contact between microorganisms and the industrial wastewater to be treated. Thus, a treated effluent is obtained meeting specific requirements of the provincial environmental regulations, which is apt to be delivered in storm ducts.

 

This Environmental Management is under the “Industrial Restructuring Program (IRP)” 
agreed with the Sub- Secretary of Environment of the province of Santiago del Estero, 
pursuing to enrich our environmental performance through continuous improvement.
