Cuitzeo Basin, Michoacán, April 2019

PhD. Tuyeni Heita Mwampamba, Line 4: Public Policies and Sustainability

Last April, members of Line 4: “Public Policies and Sustainability” (Tuyeni Heita Mwampamba, Karla Guadalupe Perez Zarco, César Rodrigo Ruiz Camou) collaborated with coal miners in the basin of Cuitzeo, Michoacán in the charcoal production process that is used in the commercial sector in Morelia.

The objective of the visit was to gather information to analyze the environmental impacts of the process, as well as to develop the sustainability indicators. In this way, the options for the use of the forest resource with greater efficiency are evaluated from new technologies to carry out the pyrolysis process.
