The project consists of: Environmental and Aglomerados cotopaxi Issues: The principal environmental and social issues related to this project include: ACOSA currently has 7, hectares of plantations consisting primarily of radiata pine and patula pine. ACOSA has voluntarily set aside a total of 1, hectares of its plantations for conservation purposes, primarily to protect watersheds and natural springs, and to conserve areas with the greatest aglomerados cotopaxi diversity.

The plantations are typically located on the slopes of hills in areas that were historically aglomerados cotopaxi consisting primarily of pastureland for cattle and sheep and for crops such as potatoes and corn.


These plantations complement other forms of agriculture practices primarily in the valley bottoms, which tend to be more apt for agriculture. The aglomerados cotopaxi to be acquired for new plantations as aglomerados cotopaxi of the expansion project will not result in resettlement, as the property to be acquired is to be purchased from the owners of aglomerados cotopaxi haciendas.

In cases where local neighbors of the haciendas have traditionally used the land for grazing cattle, ACOSA will continue to allow these persons to graze cattle on the land in an orderly manner, when the trees are taller than four meters and are therefore not affected by grazing.

In addition, there are potential employment opportunities related to the plantations. ACOSA also has a social specialist on staff who works with aglomerados cotopaxi nearby communities to support social aglomerados cotopaxi of the area: The company identified their needs and expectations through a process of public participation and social assessment of the area.

Through this program, ACOSA supports local schools by providing hundreds of local students with courses on business management, among other topics.

Pest management primarily consists of manual and biological controls. The aglomerados cotopaxi lambda cyhalothrin is only used when pests threaten to cause significant degradation to the plantations.

In the last ten years, this pesticide has only been applied twice to combat pests that biological controls would not have been effective in controlling. Empty pesticide containers are aglomerados cotopaxi in a secure place and returned to the supplier.

ACOSA employees who apply pesticides are provided with appropriate personal protective equipment, including masks. After trees are harvested, aglomerados cotopaxi waste wood is collected and sent to the industrial plant to be converted into sawdust and burned in the boilers to produce energy.

Other sustainable forestry management measures implemented include directional felling, reduction of soil compaction, and protection of riparian areas.

Air emissions from the plant are primarily a result of combustion processes. Two of their boilers rely on biomass as their energy source, and both have aglomerados cotopaxi separators to significantly reduce particulate matter PM emission levels.

However, the company is currently assessing actions necessary to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions in order to comply aglomerados cotopaxi Ecuadorian and the above-mentioned international standards. Aglomerados cotopaxi industrial plant has dust extraction systems in place that lead to a bag filter system that is inspected periodically to eliminate blockages preventing effective removal of dust.


ACOSA has begun implementing a monitoring program for air quality in the aglomerados cotopaxi to assess the levels of formaldehyde aglomerados cotopaxi, which according to the monitoring data are within acceptable levels. Solid waste generated by the project primarily consists of residual wood, board off-cuts, dry chips, and sawdust, which are disposed of in the boiler to avoid the aglomerados cotopaxi of waste.

Ash from burning residual wood is stored in a container in an area sheltered from the wind until it is taken to an off-site landfill.
