Having approximately 200 million inhabitants, Brasil is the most densely populated country in South America and the fifth biggest country of the world by area. With its mineral and natural resources, the developing nation is one of the fasted growing economies worldwide. Within the past 12 years both the government and the population have dramatically changed their opinion about the treatment of waste.
The entire South and Latin American market is explored from the Sutco Brasil base. The most important issue of Sutco Brasil for 2013 is to develop suitable waste management concepts. As far as waste and in particular the closure of disposal sites in favour of recycling is concerned, the social aspect must be considered. The people, and in particular the poorest classes of society living mainly on waste have to be involved in the restructuring processes without any exceptions. The experienced Sutco engineers and experts on the country adapt the processes as proven in Europe to the local standards and needs.
