DOMINGUEZ-MANJARREZ, Candi Ashanti; BRAVO-ALVAREZ, Humberto  e  SOSA-ECHEVERRIA, Rodolfo. Prevention, Minimization and Control of Environmental Pollution at Mexico Sugar Mill. Ing. invest. y tecnol. [online]. 2014, vol.15, n.4, pp.549-560. ISSN 1405-7743.

This research paper aims to recommend control measures directed towards preventing and minimizing pollution, looking forward to the improvement of the environmental management on the sugar industry in Mexico. This issue has been put on hold due to the necessity to address the economic, social and technological issues affecting it over time. In order to better understand the productive process and the actual problem that the industry is facing, while proposing effective and possible actions for improvement, a sugar mill type was selected as a case of study. A comprehensive assessment of the production process for the standard sugar was made, considering the activities in the field and at the mill. The proposed measures in the sugar mill allowed savings in consumption of ground water average 3,620 cubic meters per day, during the period of study, reduction in solid waste generated average 325 kilograms per day by implementing a waste separation program, and reducing atmospheric emissions of particles acting as fuel for a boiler operated with bagasse. The prevention, minimization and pollution control measures proposed can be applied to other mills in the country with the appropriate adaptations.

Palavras-chave : pollution prevention; sugar industry; sugar mill and environmental management.
