The object of this undertaking is the recovery of plastic waste from the field, in a volume equivalent to that generated by ACA from the production and marketing of silos bags and plant protection products, thus extending the life cycle of plastics through their transformation into a new raw material for various industrial uses.
55,000 tons of plastic waste are generated annually In Argentina from silos bags and containers of plant protection products. Our plant has a capacity to process 7000 tons of plastic per year.

Through this plant, 63,907 tons of food grade CO2 have been recovered at ACABIO, which is equivalent to 37,592,353 Nm3 of natural gas that has been avoided to combust.
This volume of natural gas saved is in turn equivalent to what ACA BIO consumes in 396 days of ethanol and co-product production at maximum installed capacity.

In an annex to the Yanquetruz pig farm we created a Power Co-Generation Plant made up of four biodigesters that use the stool of the animals which, in combination with other raw materials such as sorghum and corn, produce biogas.
The generation of electric power and heat energy originated from biomass, allows the self-sufficiency of the farm and the irrigation systems, in addition to which it could provide the electric power equivalent to that consumed by ACA´s Puerto San Lorenzo. Through this undertaking we contribute to the diversification of the energy matrix.
Bio Energía Yanquetruz SA, is the company through which we provide electric power to the national interconnected system.

This unprecedented plant in Argentina was installed and started in our Lean Food Cold Storage Plant, located in Justiniano Posse, province of Córdoba. According to design, based on by-products of the meat industry of low economic value, it produces electric power and heat energy, in both hot and cold formats.
This operation allows to generate energy without greenhouse effect gas emissions and to reduce non-renewable energy consumption. Since its commissioning, the plant generates absorption cooling, saving the electric power required by the refrigerant gas compressors for the cold-storage rooms.
The operation of the bio-digestion and electricity generation sector was interrupted in order to modify it, so that it can receive other additional substrates that improve the bio-digesters´ diet, making it more stable. Said modification is in the process of progress
