Lwarcel Celulose pulp mill project in Brazil
PÖYRY PLCPress release 20 June 2013 at 15.00 p.m.
Pöyry has been awarded an assignment by Lwarcel Celulose, a Lwart Group
company, for basic engineering and logistics studies for the expansion of its
pulp mill at Lençóis Paulista, São Paulo. Lwarcel had earlier engaged Pöyry's
services in the conceptual and pre-feasibility analysis for the project.
As part of the expansion, Lwarcel intends to build a new production line at
the same location of the current mill. The line will bring an additional
production capacity of up to 750,000 tons a year; currently, the annual
production is 250,000 tons of short fibre pulp from eucalyptus - raw material
used in the production of several types of paper in Brazil and abroad.
In addition to the new production line, the project also predicts the increase
of the company's planting area, going from 38,000 acres to 90,000 acres of
planted eucalyptus forests. This expansion will generate economic and social
development, as well as contributing to the preservation of native and spring
"Pöyry has been working with Lwarcel since 2008 on studies for alternatives,
logistics, feasibility and conceptual design, furthermore we have been engaged
in environmental impact studies" emphasises Marcelo Cordaro, head of Pöyry's
operations in Brazil.
The assignment further strengthens Pöyry's position as the world's leading
engineering solutions provider for the pulp and paper sector.
The value of the order is not disclosed. The project will be included in the
Industry business group's second quarter 2013 order stock.
