Basic Sanitation and Quality of Life in Brazil to Improve with Government Concessions

Working in close coordination with the National Bank for Economic and Social Development(BNDES), the Brazilian government may soon introduce concessions aimed at improving the sanitation levels for the people of Brazil. Trata Brazil is one of the organizations with an interest in making this project a reality.


The Director and President of Trata Brasil, Edson Carlos had much to say about the adjustments that needed to be enacted before the project could begin. Most of the adjustments that need to be made in this plan have to do with the administration, structure and resources involved. Felipe Montoro Jens is another expert on infrastructures who was there to comment as well. According to Felipe Montoro Jens, there is simply too much being wasted in the current system that needs to be addressed before changes or improvements can be made


According to the statistics held by Edson Carlos, only 90% of the country has full sanitation services and about 70% of this is being provided by the state providers. Edison hopes that the well-funded and technologically advanced private sector will be able to show the stateside how to employ cutting-edge techniques as they work in unison toward a shared vision.


Edison explained that the BNDES is formulating an actionble plan for the state they are serving, these will be based on information gathered from their sector. With this the plans will be able to adapt the purpose they are serving.


Felipe Montoro Jens was also enthusiastic about the ideas, saying “perhaps the path to reduced waste and better efficiency is through higher technology and improved process”. Felipe Montoro Jens has worked as the head of various important organizations and gained an high level of skill in the area of infrastructure.


At the moment, Felipe Montoro Jens is the head of the Concessionária do Centro Administrativo do Distrito Federal S.A. but he has also served as the Director of Santo Antônio Energia S.A. and various companies as well.
