Vast is responsible for more than 30% of crude oil exports in Brazil. We rely on prime infrastructure to perform transhipment services (double banking), with an area sheltered by breakwater and containment barriers, ensuring safer and more efficient operations.

Operational Sustainability

Vapor balance

Since 2016, this control measure is applied to 100% of our operations. In 2020, we began monitoring the opening time of the mast riser. In 2021, we started to quantify emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC). This initiative prevents approximately 90% of VOC emissions generated during oil transhipment operations from being released into the atmosphere, reinforcing our commitment to managing and reducing atmospheric emissions and their impacts.

Environmental Ship Index (ESI)

In 2021, we joined this World Ports Sustainability Program (WPSP), used in more than 60 ports around the world. The initiative directly contributes to the identification and encouragement of ships with superior sustainability performance, valuing the commitment to environmental preservation during operations in our terminal.
