AkzoNobel opens pulp mill in Brazil

AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS: AkzoNobel’s new €90 million Jupia Chemical Island in Brazil is now operational and has started supplying the Eldorado Brasil Celulose pulp mill, which is the biggest in the world. Operated by the company’s Pulp and Performance Chemicals business, the state-of-the-art Jupia facility represents one of AkzoNobel’s largest investments in Latin America. It will supply, store and handle all chemicals for the 1.5 million tonne per year Eldorado mill under an agreement which runs for the next 15 years.

The Jupia plant will play an important role in ensuring a sustainable eucalyptus pulp supply to the global marketplace. “We are very proud to be involved in such a prestigious project which marks a significant step in AkzoNobel accelerating growth in one of its core markets,” said Werner Fuhrmann, member of Executive Committee, responsible for Specialty Chemicals, AkzoNobel.
