Responsibility for the environment and sustainability of the coffee production has motivated us to develop a project in Nicaragua to obtain energy from coffee by-products, in conjunction with UTZ Certified.
This project has made us pioneers in the coffee industry in Nicaragua. We efficiently treat honey water from the wet mills, thus reducing the organic content and preventing groundwater contamination.
We have also generated energy from the biogas produced in the reactors, making coffee processing more economically viable by reducing operating costs as the biogas is used in the electrical generator for the mill.
Another benefit of this initiative is that it does not generate greenhouse gases.
