Environmental responsibility


Preserving the environment is part of Diatom's production process. The company operates with 50% of renewable energy, by means of Biomass, and has the most efficient and modern furnaces, with automated combustion control, which results is less fuel being burned and contributes for reducing emissions.

Always concerned in preserving the environment, in 1972 Diatom included Farm Retiro do Cambaú in its production process, aiming at reforesting, wood industrialization, plant resins and fine chemistry.

The modernization of the Logistics, using bigger vehicles with more efficient electronic engines has allowed a reduction of 26% in diesel consumption, and the implementation of SASSMAQ requires a lot of environmental care,such as control of black smoke, Noise and Waste and specific training for drivers.

Besides all that, Diatom's plant, located in Taboão industrial district, Mogi das Cruzes (SP), includes a 150,000 sq meters area of permanent preservation – which accounts for more than 65% of its total area, 230,000 sq meters.
