FFC’s plantation forests are carbon sinks that remove a significant amount of CO2 from the atmosphere. FFC’s plantation forests are located on previously degraded land that sequestered very little CO2. Our trees are sequestering carbon, which early studies in other parts of the world show can be as high as 400 – 500 t/CO2 per hectare.
Due to the lack of electricity infrastructure in rural areas there is an opportunity to develop renewable energy sources. FFC has taken advantage of innovations such as photovoltaic panels to generate electricity for our own energy needs. Beginning in 2022, FFC has been providing wood fiber to Refoenergy to fuel the bioenergy generating station in Puerto Carreño.
