Paper360 - September/October 2016 - 42

SUZANO AT A GLANCE With headquarters in São Paulo, Brazil, Suzano Pulp and Paper produces eucalyptus pulp, printing and writing paper (coated and uncoated), and paperboard. The company operates five industrial units: three in the state of São Paulo (one in Limeira and two in Suzano), and one each in the states of Bahia (Mucuri) and Maranhão (Imperatriz). Suzano employs more than 8,000 people and maintains offices in the US, Switzerland, England, Argentina, and China. Suzano Pulp and Paper is part of the Suzano Group, a private company with a 92-year history in Brazil. In addition to pulp and paper, the group's businesses include insurance, reinsurance and risk management, real estate development, environmental services, and multi-channel communication.

The first is Futuragene (a biotechnology research company focused on forestry improvement), which is a costly operation. We don't expect results in the short run, but we believe it will be revolutionary for Suzano in the future, allowing us to reach a pulp cash cost less than $100/tonne. The second business is eucalyptus fluff pulp. Suzano developed a technology that is being widely accepted by the market. We have been testing the Eucafluff with several clients; sales volumes are growing and will continue to grow, as the product has not only shown a lower cost compared to regular softwood fiber, but also posts better technical characteristics. We are very happy with this evolution and the project has an important scalability, as it began with 100,000 tonnes/ yr, but world fluff consumption has reached 5.6 million tonnes/yr. The third business is lignin, as we will kick off a 20,000-tonne/yr extraction plant in July 2017 at our Limeira mill. With it, instead of using the black liquor to produce and trade energy for $300/tonne, we will sell chemical products that can sell for up to $1,100/tonne. Now that energy prices are lower, the opportunities related to this project seem even higher. At the moment, we are working with the most basic products arising from lignin-the lignosulfonates-but we are ready to seek other applications with higher added value. The last project I can mention is tissue production in two of our mills, Mucuri and Imperatriz, expected by late 2017. This is a very important project for the company as we will be very competitive in the northern and northeastern regions of Brazil by SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2016 29/07/16 12:20 am adding integrated tissue production at two existent pulp mills. All costs are already under control; we have the pulp, water and energy, effluent treatment, and logistics ready, so tissue production will be extremely competitive. In this new scenario of investments, what is Suzano's outlook for its market pulp business? Pulp is representative (of Suzano) and will continue to be. Investments in other businesses are made to increase the recurrence of positive financial results, as we don't want to have pulp as the sole value lever for the company. We are extracting new opportunities from what we already have. Lignin is in the black liquor; the fluff pulp uses equipment and inputs we have. We are debottlenecking mills all the time and taking advantage of our main asset, which is our forestry competitiveness. Before you were the CEO, Suzano had plans to invest in further pulp capacity and pellet production for energy. Why did this change under your leadership, with other new businesses added? The fluff and lignin projects reached commercial and technical maturity to scale up while I have been CEO, but I didn't start them. The investment on pellets was put aside initially as the company was financially stressed and we couldn't increase risk at that time. We still have forestry assets in Piauí and Maranhão states that could serve new pulp investments, though we have not defined how we will use them. Given that, I don't see the company lurching with me; I am just moving on with ideas and concepts that the company had started to discuss in the past. www.tappi.org http://www.ingredion.us/papermaking http://www.ingredion.us/papermaking http://www.tappi.org
