Wednesday September 13th was the official and festive opening of the new film coating production facility, named ″Aquarela″ at the Incotec site in Holambra, Brazil. Incotec is a leading seed enhancement company with a global presence and is part of Life Science company, Croda. The new facility is a response to the growing demands of the film coating market.

Bruno Hoeltgebaum Neto, Global Sales Director: ″This is a strategic investment for Incotec which is not only about increasing capacity to support business growth. It also underscores our commitment to safety for employees and for the environment and secures our ability to deliver the highest quality product to an increasingly discerning market. We are very proud of the result. With Aquarela we have successfully combined cutting-edge technology with maximum sustainability.″

Sustainability is key  

The new factory has an area of 900m², is fully automated and equipped with state-of-the-art technology. Sustainability is key and has been maximized wherever possible. An example is the modern cleaning system, known as the CIP system (Cleaning in Place), which radically reduces the use of water. Photovoltaic panels have been installed to produce energy on site, meeting up to 95% of the energy demands, plan to cover 100%, with the expectation of saving up to 95mt CO2 per year. The project also includes a rainwater reservoir which will be used to irrigate Incotec's gardens.

Hoeltgebaum Neto: ″With this new plant we have refined our product quality, as well as our delivery capacity and speed, but we have also taken a huge step towards greater sustainability. We always look for the most sustainable solutions to help our customers achieve their goals.″
