Charcoal ovens owned by Enio Jugue Barbosa, son of Antoninho Barbosa are using illegally logged wood. 47 ovens and will be increased to 200 in the near future. The charcoal will be used in the smeltery Sidepar in Maraba.
The increase in cattle made Brazil the biggest meat exporter of the world. The cattle, fires and the production of charcoal has put Brazil on the list as the third largest polluter in the world and contributes therefor to 18% of the greenhouse effect.
