OBJECTIVES
To reduce pollution on water bodies that receive the wastes of coffee processing.
This project will allow the organization to reduce the use of water in the processing of coffee, adapting their actual system and recycling the used water.
Additionally, they will give a physic treatment to waste waters and will use the resulting coffee pulp to feed a biodigestor to produce gas for their coffee dryers and use the resulting compost from the biodigestor as organic fertilizer for their plantations.
