With a partnership with the National Bank for Economic and Social Development on the horizon, the government of Brazil announced its plan to make concessions. Trata Brasil, which is a company that focuses on the intricacies of basic sanitation, will be directly involved with the new deal. The President of Trata Brasil, Edison Carlos, recently gave an interview in which he broke down the most important points of the upcoming initiative. It is of Mr. Carlos’ belief that with the new initiative, the current services that have been provided will see major improvements in the areas involving management, resource and structural areas. Felipe Montoro Jens, who is an expert on infrastructure projects, recently weighed in, discussing the decrease in the levels of waste.
According to Mr. Edison, about 90 percent of the basic sanitation services are handled by public powers, and of these services, about 70 percent are state-controlled organizations. Mr. Edison also believes that the private initiative is not aimed at excluding the public, but instead, insists that both forms of management will be able to work together for the betterment of the Brazilian population. The President of Trata Brasil that historically connections such as this, between the government and private organizations have coexisted in a positive manner, and that partnerships with other companies will only continue to improve this. According to Felipe Montoro Jens, the National Bank for Economic and Social Development will implement custom plans to address each individual state and their needs, and also stated that the loss of water is the main contributor to the losses experienced by the state-owned companies.
Felipe Montoro Jens is the Chief Executive Officer of Energizer Captacao S.A. and is an expert in finance, investments, and infrastructure. Throughout his career, he has shown a deep interest in waste management, particularly, the high waste levels throughout the states, due to its impact on economic wealth.
