The NAMA has two objectives. In the short term, the objective is:
- Incorporation and compliance to a voluntary environmental program of the Tequila industry for the sustainable disposition of vinazas, bagasse and agave leaf, considered today as a waste.
- Replacement of fossil fuel in the Mexican industry with renewable biofuel derived from the agave, promoting the installation and operation of biomass based cogeneration systems that use agave waste from the Tequila industry.
- Accreditation of emissions reduction in the production of Tequila through the distinctive "Holohuella CO2" (hologram-carbon footprint) as a physical proof to adhere to the bottle.
In the long term, the NAMA will incorporate to the voluntary environmental program, other biomasses considered a waste besides the Agave.
Activities: (2012 - 2013)
The NAMA begins in 2012 with the following actions:
- Sustainable use of the agave bagasse in 2012
- Sustainable use of the harness agave leaf in 2012
- Sustainable treatment and utilization of agave vinasse in 2013
- Incorporation of the tequila producer to the Voluntary Environmental Program for the treatment of agave bagasse and agave vinasse in 2012
- Incorporation of the farmer-peasant “jimador” to the Voluntary Environmental Program for the treatment of agave leaf in 2012
- Emissions reductions in the Tequila production accreditation, by the distinctive “Holohuella CO2” in 2012
- Fossil fuel switch in the Mexican industry with renewable biomass biofuel derived from agave in 2012
The NAMA incorporates in to the program other biomass than Agave in 2013.
Impact and MRV
|Cumulative GHG reductions: No data available|
The implementation of this NAMA will avoid the production of methane inside the agave bagass piles that currently are formed once the waste of the tequila industry is left to decade.

|Social:|| Income generation for the Mexican farmer to promote the exploitation and proper use of the agave leaf, creating a nonexistent market to 3,571,428 tons of agave leaf per year, not used and worthless today. A non-profit social program is expected.
|Economic:|| Information has not been provided
|Environmental:|| Mitigation of current severe environmental impacts by avoiding the inadequate and irresponsible disposal of solid and liquid waste from the industrialization of Agave in the Tequila factories of the country.
Sanitation of aquifers (groundwater).
