The solid residues (mainly rind) obtained as a result of the processing of the fresh fruit, are collected and transferred to farms to be used as a food source for cattle.
The liquid residues generated are transferred to a system of residual water treatment. There they receive two treatments:
- Primary treatment: homogenization tanks and sedimentation process.
- Secondary treatment: two lagoons of oxidation and a stone filter. This system allows that the treated waters arrive at their effluent, fulfilling all parameters demanded by national laws and standards.
