The need for the greenhouse gases emissions has been treated as top priority by the food industries in order to reduce and even zero their emissions, and also to stimulate and support the reduction in the other links of the production chains related to their business.

In Brazil, data from the Estimates System Greenhouse Gases Emissions (GEE, 2018), indicate that 5.2% of liquid emissions are from the industrial processes, and the remaining from the Energy (21,7%), Agricultural sector (25.4%), Changes in the use of Land and Forests (43.6%) e Waste Treatment (4.7%). In other sources of data (SANTOS et al., 2016) it is estimated that o the food and beverage segment will be responsible, by 2030, for 3.9% for emissions of the entire industrial sector in the country.
