Industrial Symbiosis

Meet - Industrial Symbiosis

e way Atina works, a sustainable production chain implies the use of the full potential of natural raw materials. Thus, the waste from each stage of a process is potentially a raw material for the next stage. This concept is known internationally as Cradle to Cradle TM(http://www.c2ccertified.org )which contrasts with the Cradle-to-Grave concept - from cradle to grave - traditionally adopted in product life cycle analysis.
Industrial Symbiosis

In the bisbolol chain stuctured by Atina, the candeia sawdust exhausted of oil can be use to produce plastic wood, or WPC - Wood Plastic Composites, a material widely used for decks and floors in wet areas, instead of wood.

Industrial Symbiosis
Atina was part of the Brazilian Industrial Symbiosis Program, coordinated locally by FIEMG (http://www.fiemg.org.br/pbsi)), in which industries from different sectors exchange materials and services through an organised system of supply and demand. Through this program, and the relationships between companies promoted by BDMG, (http://www.bdmg.mg.gov.br) Atina has established creative and economically viable uses for several of its by-products
