Brazil's Gelnex opened a new plant (its third) producing bovine gelatine. The plant, which was designed to maximize the use of clean and renewable energy sources, minimize the company's greenhouse gas emissions and reduce use of petroleum-based electric power generation, is located in the northern Brazilian city of Araguaína. Solar energy is used to generate a significant amount of the plant's electricity demand, to heat water used in processing and in offices. A unique innovation at the company's Itá plant is the generation of electricity by diesel engines powered by pork fat, a by-product of the gelatin production process. According to Felipe Chaluppe, vice president, sales and marketing, all three of its plants take advantage of location and advanced technology to reduce energy demands, enhance water conservation and use renewable resources. This newest plant uses all the latest technology such as solar photovoltaic systems, solar water heating, wastewater recycling, and use of renewable biomass fuels. Gelnex achieved Silver Certification through the prestigious Brazilian GHG (GreenHouse Gas) Protocol Program, fully compatible with the norms of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the methods of quantification of the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
