Klabin’s Puma mill operating at full (100%) capacity
(Brazil, April 28, 2017) Klabin’s 1.5 million tonne/yr (BEK) Puma pulp mill in Brazil has reached 100% capacity, CEO Fabio Schvartsman announced at the company’s Q1 2017 Financial Report & Conference Call dated April 28, 2017.
The new unit has the capacity to produce 1.5 million tons of pulp a year, of which 1.1 million tons will be hardwood pulp and 400,000 tons softwood pulp. A portion of the softwood pulp will be converted into fluff pulp, the only one in the country to be produced from pine planted forests, processed in an industrial unit entirely designed for this purpose.
