Abstract | Full Text

This article presents the case study of the implementation of Production Planning and Control with environmental education in a chemical plant. For this purpose, it emphasizes the necessary infrastructure, to sensitize and disseminate environmental education in a transversal way for officials and planners operating in production, making it possible to form ecoteam for the dissemination of knowledge in environmental education and sustainable development projects. It is noteworthy that the two production planners were the main agents of ecoteam in creating the action plan for the structuring of cleaner production. Semi-structured interviews and participant observation were used for the development of the case study, allowing to raise the principles, practices and the Clean Manufacturing enablers that the organization has adopted as a performance goal for competitiveness. It was also possible to evaluate the economic and environmental advantages of implementing the project involving the sequencing of tasks within the planning and control functions. The environmental benefits were measured by the Wuppertal (2008) method. Two variables were considered in the measurement of results obtained with the implementation: the production volume in liters and the cost per liter of the main raw material. The increasing of the amount of production was 20% in liters and the cost reduction, of 10.6% per liter.
