On January 26, the Rota do Sol Concessionaire earned the Americas - Transportation Deal of The Year Award from PFI Yearbook 2010 (Project Finance International) promoted by Thomson Reuters. The yearbook shows the main case studies for 2010 from the sectors of renewable energy and infrastructure among companies from the Americas, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The financing project earned the award for negotiating the total amount necessary for the construction project investment, US$ 1.2 billion, with seven local banks. “It is the largest financing agreement for the last 15 years in Colombia,” said Alejandro Sánchez, Executive Vice President of Corficolombiana.

The construction work is set to begin in April of this year and should be completed in five years. The concession period is 15 years.

ream The construction work for yet another stage of the Clean Stream Program, promoted by Foz do Brasil at Cachoeiro de Itapemirim, in Espírito Santo, is drawing to a close. A the Cobiça Stream, which passes through the neighborhoods of Coronel Borges, Novo Parque, Santa Helena, Nossa Senhora da Penha and Santa Cecília, all of the properties have already been connected to the sewage network. With the new 3,500-meter network that collects and carries the effluents to the Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) in Coronel Borges, the residents no longer have to deal with the problem of dirty water, which caused diseases and discomfort. The construction work began in 2009, in partnership with the City Government and Agersa. “The water from the stream was dirty and smelled bad, especially in the summer,” said merchant Isair Gaudêncio Máximo, a resident of Santa Helena. “There were many rats and mosquitoes because of the sewage. Now, the water is clean,” he said. The Clean Stream Program receives part of a R$ 75 million package in investments from Foz do Brasil in Cachoeiro de Itapemirim. The goal is to clean up the streams that traverse 32 neighborhoods until 2012. “Today, we have 10 teams working on the Clean Stream projects and other investment programs focused on sanitation and the supply of treated water,” said Marcio Tanajura, Unit Director. “This means an immediate improvement Isair Gaudêncio Máximo, a merchant from the neighborhood of Santa Helena, followed the construction work for the Clean Stream Program: “The water improved 100%.”

This includes the connections of some 300 properties at the banks of the Itapemirim River in the city’s downtown area to the network that carries the waste to the Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) in the neighborhood of Coronel Borges, as well as the construction projects that will take sewage from the region of the União and Monte Belo neighborhoods, using a special pumping system, to the same STP. There will also be activities to expand and modernize the center collection systems and install STPs in the districts of Itaoca, Córrego dos Monos, Conduru, Soturno and Burarama. It is predicted that the construction work will be completed during the third quarter of this year. CERTIFIED QUALITY This year, the Cachoeiro de Itapemirim sewage treatment obtained the ISO 14001, international quality certification. The Foz do Brasil concession in the municipality has had the ISO 9001 for 10 years. “We proved that the sewage treatment complies with all federal, state and municipal legislation,” said Adriana Altoé Pigatti, the professional responsible for People and Organization at the concessionaire. “Obtaining the ISO 14.001 was an objective of the Foz unit in Cachoeiro de Itapemirim,” she said.

For Vinício Fonseca, the professional responsible for Export Financing at Construtora Norberto Odebrecht (CNO), the Ex-Im Bank guarantees and BNP funds give CNO access to new sources of financing. “The Coral Expressway is a pioneering project that results from the partnership between CNO and Ex-Im Bank,” said Fonseca.

involved. “After the settlement, everything got better,” said Oliveira. “I don’t have any more problems with the father of my children. The pension is being on time. I regret not seeking out IDC sooner,” she said. The idea to search for support at the institute came from her daughter, Jeane de Oliveira, 23, former student of the PTN Rural Family Home - a teaching unit that, similarly to IDC, is associated with the Bahia Southern Lowlands Environmental Protection Area Mosaic Integrated and Sustainable Development Program (PDIS), instituted by the Odebrecht Foundation. Jeane explains that the agreement was established during a hearing at the IDC. “My mother needed this support and everything was resolved with a conversation. Our family’s relationship improved,” said the youth, who currently works in the administrative area of the Pratigi Environmental Protection Area Guardian Association (AGIR), an institution that is part of PDIS, and is also the President of the Graduate Community - an initiative that gathers the former students of the teaching units to continue with their training.

A Tribute to a Forerunner in Science in Brazil To celebrate the International Year of Chemistry, Braskem, in partnership with the Alagoas State Research Support Fund (FAPEAL), launched the contest “The Life and Work of José de Freitas Machado.” Designed for students from undergraduate and graduate courses of Brazilian universities, the contest encourages participants to reflect on the life and work of José de Freitas Machado, founder and first director of the National Chemistry School, founder of the Brazilian Chemistry Society and student of the scientist and Nobel Prize winner Marie Curie in Sorbonne, Paris. The works must be between 80 and 120 pages and follow the norms of the Brazilian Association of Technical Standards (ABNT). The deadline for delivering the work is April 29. The three top projects are awarded. First place will receive R$ 10,000, second place, R$ 5,000 and third place, R$ 2,500. The best work will be published and launched at the Alagoas International Book Biennial in September of this year. For more information and to sign up, students should access the website www.fapeal.br.
