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.

Brazil Private & Public Cooperation Solves Problems

A close cooperation between the public and private sector can solve some of the most pressing Brazil water and sanitation problems. The Brazilian government has realized this with its March 2017 concessions through the National Bank for Economic and Social Development (BNDES). The private sector provides efficiency and the public sector provides resources.


Dearth of Water


Of course, water is essential to human life. Most Brazilians have taken this for granted due to the Amazon rain forest and Atlantic Ocean. But the 2014 – 2016 drought might have changed the rules of water management.


Promises for additional reservoirs have dried up. “After five years of drought, farmer Edivaldo Brito says he cannot remember when the Boqueirão reservoir was last full. But he has never seen it this empty,” Reuters reported in February 2017. The reservoirs have not returned to pre-drought levels yet.


Temer’s administration is also cutting back. Brazilian departments have been trimmed and austerity seems to be the new word of the day. Still, water projects cannot be avoided. What is the answer?


Trata Brasil Waste Projects


The president of waste sanitation firm Trata Brasil, Edison Carlos explained that the vast majority of basic Brazil sanitation services were controlled by the government – 90%. The difficulty that many sanitation services are experiencing is that they are also heavily dependent upon water for their regular operations. Infrastructure expert Felipe Montoro Jens has identified this as a key reason for public funds flowing to private firms. Private firms are simply more efficient with resources.


Mother Nature and the budget have been game changers for Brazil. Private water management expert Felipe Montoro Jens is assisting with the transition to more private control over water and sanitation services. Mr. Felipe Montoro Jens can help the Brazilian government save money and improve water usage.
