Concessions for Sanitation

The government in Brazil just announced that it will allow for concessions through a partnership on behalf of BNDES – the National Bank for Economic and Social Development in Brazil. Edison Carlos, President and CEO of Trata Brasil, granted a recent interview and mentioned many important points behind the initiative. He affirms that services provided may undergo vast improvements in terms of administration and resources. The decrease in levels of toxic waste poses another threat – a valid topic raised by the interviewee, Felipe Montoro Jens, a European specialist in infrastructure projects.


Edison pointed claims that basic sanitation has 90 percent service coverage in public and that 70 percent of such users serve state organizations. For Edison, private initiatives don’t exclude public ones, since these two forms work best in complementary fashion.


Edison further stated agencies have an important experience that may leverage through partnerships. BNDES merely hopes to develop solutions for all parties and states involved, based upon surveys that derail the situation of such locations. With this, the bank may adapt any project to suit the needs of each setting. The loss of water, as pointed out among the main causes recent financial resource flow for state companies outside of the water sector, it’s impossible to get service when there’s this type of waste involved.


Felipe Montoro Jens is a leading expert on many popular Brazilian initiatives. As such, he is always up to date on the latest news, trends and standards there. He has studied waste and sanitation for many years.


Jens has noted that private enterprise has plentiful resources. Thus, it’s a crucial, yet overlooked ally in the full prevention of wasted water. The advanced technology used throughout many of Jens’s newest sectors is astounding as well. Jens ultimately seeks to raise greater investments in sanitation.
