PORTO ALEGRE, Brazil – The 71,000 liters of alcoholic beverages confiscated by the Federal Revenue Service in Foz do Iguaçu in the state of Paraná in 2010 and 2011are being put to good use.
Instead of being destroyed, they are transformed into alcohol gel and ethanol in a laboratory at the Universidade Estadual do Centro-Oeste (Unicentro), a public university in Guarapuava, Paraná.
In addition to disposing of the beverages in an ecologically correct manner, the partnership provides fuel for five university vehicles. The production process also supplies alcohol gel for Unicentro and the Federal Revenue Service in Paraná.
