Commitment with future generations

Education of children is a fundamental factor to change the context of human development. For this reason, for more than 10 years, Agrokasa, together with the Apoyo Institute, have joined forces to provide tools to students and teachers in Ica through the «Matemáticas y Comunicación para todos» (Mathematics and Communication for all) program.
The new scenario, product of the pandemic, was a great challenge since went from a physical style to a remote one with the challenges and considerations of its own for both teachers and parents as well as students.
Support was provided with access to virtual libraries, forums, pedagogical support, training modules and digital material. As a result, a high percentage of the teachers who participated achieved a satisfactory level during an evaluation and were certified.

Wastewater treatment plant (WWTP)

In August 2020, Agrokasa began construction of the Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) in Ica, which will operate 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.
This project will be one of the most modern in the Ica region and will benefit not only the agricultural sector and the community, but will also have a great impact on the environment. This project focuses on these pillars: Diversification and efficient use of water sources, and sustainability.
With the WWTP, more than 3,000 jobs will be generated, the planting of 300 new hectares of avocado and blueberries, as well as the renovation of 500 hectares of table grapes.
«It will undoubtedly be a great opportunity to reduce the risks of contamination in view of the collapse that for years has been affecting the crude discharges to the oxidation lagoons of the Cachiche sector (Ica) that have been exceeded in capacity», expressed representatives of Agrokasa.

PTAR Ica, proyecto sustentable

En agosto del 2020, Agrokasa inició la construcción de la Planta de Tratamiento de Aguas Residuales (PTAR) en Ica, la cual operará los 365 días del año, 24 horas al día.

Esta obra será uno de las más modernas en la región Ica y beneficiará no solo al sector agrícola y a la comunidad, sino que tendrá gran impacto en el medio ambiente.  Este proyecto se enfoca en tres pilares: Diversificación de fuentes de agua, uso eficiente del recurso hídrico y sostenibilidad.

Con la PTAR se generarán más de 3,000 puestos de trabajo, la siembra de 300 nuevas hectáreas de palta y arándanos, así como la renovación de 500 hectáreas de uvas de mesa.

“Sin duda será una gran oportunidad para reducir los riesgos de contaminación en vista del colapso que por años ha venido afectando los vertimientos crudos a las lagunas de oxidación del sector Cachiche (Ica) que han sido superadas en capacidad”, expresaron representantes de Agrokasa.
