Industrial waste recycling

The industrial waste recycling program aims to provide adequate disposal of waste, reducing environmental impact as much as possible. Technically, it consists of reusing, recycling or landfilling the waste generated by the company. This conduct demonstrates the commitment to environmental responsibility and the NBR ISO 14001 management system.

Selective collect

Embaré invested in the physical structure of the Waste Center, benefiting the selective collection, storage and disposal of waste. More than 90% of solid waste generated is recycled, and more than 400 tons of recyclable material are donated to Ascalp – Association of Collectors of Lagoa da Prata. The rest of the non-recyclable waste is sent to companies specializing in the treatment of these materials. In this way, the company guarantees the correct destination of all the waste it produces.

Industrial Effluent Treatment Station

The ETEI was built in 1997 and had its capacity increased in 2008. In 2016 the station underwent significant improvements in the technology of the treatment processes, with the aim of improving the efficiency of the system, improving the quality of the water released into the receiving body and produce biofertilizer from solid waste. The effluents are submitted to a physical and biological treatment in anaerobic lagoons and stabilization lagoons. Already treated and analyzed in an exclusive laboratory, the water is released into the receiving body.

Electricity generation through the Clean Development Mechanism - CDM

In the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) project developed by Embaré, part of the biogas − composed mainly of methane, generated in the Industrial Effluent Treatment Station (ETEI) − is driven to a generator and, from its combustion, is transformed in electric energy, used for the maintenance of the ETEI; the other part returns to the factory and is used as fuel to generate steam in the boiler. The burning of biogas provides the elimination of 600 tons of biomass per month, contributing to the reduction of the greenhouse effect and engaging in the policy of using renewable energy sources.

Biomass Boiler

Embaré has, since 2014, a biomass boiler in its factory. It occupies an area of ​​1.615m² and has a steam production capacity greater than the sum of the capacity of the three previous boilers. The gases from the burning of biomass are free of substances composed of heavy metals; in addition, the boiler has even more advanced safety features, electronically controlled, with noise mufflers and thermal and acoustic insulation, preventing heat and noise from interfering in the internal and external environment of the factoryapprox.

Atmospheric Emission

Embaré periodically monitors gaseous emissions from boiler chimneys, ensuring levels of sulfur, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides are well below the limits required by Brazilian legislation.

Water recovery

Embaré has developed a system for the recovery of evaporated water in the milk concentration and drying process. The system is equipped with conductivity meters and automatic valves that direct the water to processes that require low hardness water. This system reduces the amount of water collected in artesian wells and reduces the use of chemical products for water treatment, also reducing the impact on the environment. Another Embaré commitment is to the rational use of water resources. In milk production, the company consumes only 1,4 liters of water for each liter of industrialized milk, while the national average is 3 to 4 liters of water. To reach this percentage, several measures were adopted over the last few years, such as installing a level meter in the milk reception bay and reusing condensed water to generate steam in the boiler.

Recovery of condensed water from steam

Embaré has a project to recover 80% of the condensed water from the steam consumption points. The recovered water is used in the boilers at a temperature of 80°C, reducing fuel consumption and reducing the consumption of potable water.

Alternative for a cleaner economy

Embaré makes a rigorous selection of packaging suppliers. Everyone who supplies the paper packaging is FSC certified and undergoes annual audits carried out by the Integrated Management System area. In addition, the brand's carton products Camponesa they also have both the cap and the plastic that make up the protective layers of the packaging from sugarcane. The so-called “green plastic”, polyethylene produced from ethanol, is a source of renewable raw material. Even though it is not biodegradable, the material is more beneficial to the environment than conventional petroleum-derived plastic. This is because it reduces the emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, which cause global warming.

Embaré Employees Recreational Association – ARCE

Among the projects that benefit Embaré employees, the most prominent is the Associação Recreativa dos Collaborators da Embaré – ARCE, founded in 1982. The realization of this socio-sports project provides Embaré employees and their families with a place for socializing and practices sports.


Our quality begins in the field, with the competent and tireless work of rural producers. They are the faithful partners who guarantee the purity of the milk, which is later industrialized and transformed into various products. And this healthy and productive relationship collaborates a lot to guarantee the quality standard that Embaré is so proud of.

Embaré Assist Project

The Embaré Assist Project is a technical and management consultancy program, which seeks maximum economic efficiency for the milk producer.

He works to improve zootechnical indicators, milk quality and economic processes on the farm, helping the producer to manage his business more efficiently and profitably.

The project is available to all rural producers that are Embaré's partners, and is flexible to meet the most diverse realities. In the coming years, Embaré's investment perspective in technical assistance is around R$7 million.

We believe that with the qualification and continuous investment in our partners we can, together, achieve better results.

Continuous Improvement of Milk Quality

To assist the producer in the continuous improvement of his product, Embaré provides technical training and guidance visits, with highly qualified consultants who help in the implementation of processes and management to guarantee well-being, animal health and milk quality.

Educampo Project

Educampo is an innovative project that has benefited thousands of producers, through planned actions that make dairy farming increasingly efficient and profitable. Developed in partnership with SEBRAE/MG, it aims to provide technical and managerial training to our partners. The project provides the producer with an entrepreneurial vision of his business, with a focus on economic results.

Model Farm

Embaré, in partnership with QCONZ – Latin America (a New Zealand multinational, world leader in projects and consultancy for the dairy sector), developed a Good Agricultural Practices Program, which involves: animal welfare, management, infrastructure and quality of the milk.

The program has simple tools and methods that are easily applied on farms.

The partner producers participating in the project receive follow-up through visits and diagnosis, and are instructed to use the system of good agricultural practices on the farm and improve the level of quality at all stages of production.

The management system, implemented effectively, aims to make the processes employed more sustainable and efficient, putting the company on the path to standardization and quality.

Input Purchase Program

Embaré supports its rural producers, searching the market for the best opportunities to buy food for production. Everything to offer better conditions of purchase and maximization of profits, passing on to suppliers the inputs at cost price, in addition to making available and enabling the adoption of techniques and strategies for stocking the items purchased.

Various inputs are available, ranging from fertilizers for the production of roughage and grains to concentrates used in the formulation of diets.

An opportunity for the small producer to have the same purchasing power as a large producer.

More Genetics Project

Embaré, in partnership with its rural producers, created the Mais Genetic Project. This initiative aims to encourage the genetic improvement of its partners' herds, through the Fixed Time IVF Embryo Transfer (In Vitro Fertilization) technique.

This technology makes it possible to identify and use more qualified animals for reproduction, ensuring the birth of calves with high genetic value and the genetic improvement of the herd with assertiveness.

Through these genetic improvement instruments, producers can improve the productivity of their herd, adding value to their production and with a good economic return in the dairy activity.


Embaré holds animal auctions. The initiative aims to create a link between the producer who has a surplus of animals and the producer who has demand.

At the opportunity, the producer can purchase the animals in up to 10 interest-free installments, and all the animals purchased produce milk before the first installment. Therefore, it is possible that the production itself helps pay for the purchase made.

This practice is advantageous for the producer both in terms of more competitive prices and the optimization of time in the search for new animals.

Embaré Fomento App

It is an intelligent dairy production management system, made available free of charge by Embaré to its partner producers.

Its technology allows the user to access information about the volume of milk collected, current and historical milk quality results, as well as access to payment statements, in an agile and practical way, directly from their cell phone.

All to offer more agility and transparency in the producer's relationship with Embaré and make the day to day on the farm even simpler, helping the producer to have greater control and predictability over his production.

The Embaré Fomento APP is free and available on the Play Store (Android) and on the App Store (iOS).
