In the State of São Paulo, the annual availability of water/inhabitant is 2.480 m3, but in the ABC Region it is only 130 m3/inhabitant/year.

“The water situation in the ABC region was what drove the creation of the largest reused water production system in the southern hemisphere, the Aquapolo Ambiental project, with the capacity to produce up to 1.000 liters of industrial water per second for the Mauá Petrochemical Complex and other companies in the environment”, José Rodrigues, general director of GS Inima Industrial.
