In the cerrado of Tocantins, the reNascer Cerrado, financed by Cargill, seeks to contribute to the recovery of degraded areas.
The eco-efficient stove was developed by Perene, following the principles of the “Rocket Stove” model, by the specialist in improved combustion technologies, the American Dr. Larry Winiarski (1940-2021). The model needs less firewood to produce the flames, and the heating time can be up to half that of a rudimentary stove.
With this dynamic, the use of eco-efficient stoves reduces the interference in the local ecosystem for the removal of firewood and reduces the emission of polluting gases. The benefits to the environment are aligned with the improvement of the quality of life of families, who start to cook without excessive smoke harmful to health and well-being.
Perene is seeking to work in the productive and ecological recomposition of rural properties that have environmental liabilities and will seek to apply its knowledge of the process of construction and certification of carbon credits.
Started in February 2022, reNascer Cerrado is currently being developed in a rural area of 50 hectares in the region of Palmas (TO). The degraded area is being enriched with native trees such as Baru, Cajuzinho, Jatobá, Xixá; Vinhático, Acorn Bean, Bitter Angelim and Barbatimão.
