DINANT ANNOUNCES RECORD ENVIRONMENTAL PROGRESS IN 2017

TEGUCIGALPA, HONDURAS, Jan. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Corporacion Dinant today announced a series of results showing the long-term environmental benefits of the company’s significant investments in its African Palm plantations in the Aguán and Leán regions of Honduras.

 

Since 2014, Dinant’s African Palm plantations have significantly cut their impact on the natural environment.  Water consumption has been reduced by 73%, industrial wastewater generation is down 40%, and production processes now use 54% less energy.

 

Company Spokesman, Roger Pineda, commented, “Dinant has invested heavily in recent years to ensure that our African Palm plantations have less impact on the environment, and I’m delighted that we are seeing excellent results.  Our oil extraction mills in Honduras have net zero operations with respect to energy, water and waste.  Over 95% of the waste produced at our plantations is reused, marketed or recycled.  And in the Aguán, the clean energy generated from biomass and biogas has enabled us to reduce our use of fossil fuels by 25%.  Furthermore, all MAZOLA cooking products are now sourced from 100% sustainable raw materials.”

 

Dinant’s high-tech biogas recovery unit at its oil extraction mill in the Aguán, which has generated 50 million m³ of biogas and reduced the company’s use of fossil fuels by 6 million gallons since 2008, has been designated a Clean Development Mechanism by the United Nations.

 

Mr. Pineda continued, “In recognition of our investment in the environment, Dinant’s African Palm oil extraction mills and plantations have received two International Sustainability and Carbon Certifications – ISCC EU and ISCC Plus – for the sustainability of raw materials and products, the traceability of supply chains, and the control of greenhouse gas emissions.  We’re really proud of the progress we’re making, but we know there is still more work to be done.”
