The process of environmental education exists in Domingos Martins since its inauguration, with selective garbage collection, correct destination, use of organic material in composting for plants and orchards located on the site.
But in 2014, in light of the scarcity of water, the leadership of MCC also initiated a water sustainability project in the Maanaim of Espírito Santo.
Currently Maanaim’s water consumption is 180 liters resident/day, which corresponds to approximately 637,380 liters per day of drinking water, considering an average population of 3,541 people per seminar.
For this reason, the reuse water treatment station was developed, with capacity to treat 6 liters of sewer per second, transforming this effluent into water in conditions to be reused. All this process is carried out through the Water Treatment Station (WTS) of Maanaim of Espírito Santo.
The procedures, set by the Brazilian Association of Technical Standards (BATS) 13.969 / 97 as classes 2 and 3, guarantee sanitary water in conditions for use in non-potable purposes, such as cleaning of roads, flushing of toilets and other standardized norms.
Besides being an attitude for the sustainable use of water resources, it also reduces costs and avoids throwing into the environment undesirable chemical products, used in the treatment of water. The sustainability of the planet is one of our fundamental principles MCC.
Because it is sustainable in all aspects, the Maanaim of Espírito Santo is also producing a new reforestation work for its small open area, through an environmental education project that has the special participation of children, intermediaries and adolescents of MCC.
