The portal of Exame magazine has published content about how the production of biodiesel is one of the key items for expanding the green economy in Brazil. The biofuel is an ally against climate change for having 80% fewer greenhouse gases emissions, as well as social and economic benefits.
JBS is a concrete example of the increased investment by the private sector in the expansion and use of renewable, less polluting fuels. Global leader in protein-based food, the company uses organic waste like beef tallow and recovered cooking oil to manufacture the biofuel at two plants in Lins (SP) and Campo Verde (MT), in addition to having recently initiated the operations at a third plant in Mafra (SC).
JBS Biodiesel is today the world’s largest vertical producer of clean fuel from beef tallow and is also the country’s first company to obtain RenovaBio certification to issue Decarbonization Credits (CBIO), an essential tool in support of sustainability.
The Company was also the first Brazilian company to obtain the ISCC stamp, certification that guarantees the sustainability and traceability of the product, which facilitates its exportation to the European market.
