Cargill’s Santarem port terminal gets operating permit

SANTAREM, PORTUGAL: The State of Para Environmental Secretariat (SEMA) issued the operating permit for Cargill’s Santarem port terminal, as well as the installation permit to expand those facilities. The license formalizes SEMA’s technical opinion on the feasibility of that investment and will enable Cargill to go ahead and make further investments in the terminal.

The new investments to expand the facilities were considered in the Environmental Impact Study and Environmental Impact Report (EIA-RIMA) of the terminal. The new license will enable Cargill to expand the terminal’s storage capacity to 90,000 thousand metric tonne of grains. The company also plans to upgrade the logistics involving delivery, storage, and shipping of grains. “The investments reinforce Cargill’s effort and commitment to Santarem and help develop Brazilian agribusiness,” explained Clythio Buggenhout, Director of ports, Cargill.
