These actions, considered to be within the Clean Development Mechanisms projects (MDL) decrease the amount of greenhouse gasses that are produced by swine farms, dairy farms and slaughterhouses, while at the same time generating renewable energy.

With this initiative more than 1,3 million tons of carbon dioxide are prevented from entering the atmosphere and 4.460 gigawatts (GWh) have been generated per hour, which covers the demand of the productive units.
