AVK Brasil supplies valves to development project

Being one of the largest private investments in Brazil today, the “Cerrado Project” is transforming the region’s socioeconomic reality through the generation of jobs, income, and sustainable development. The project covers the construction of a new pulp mill, enhancing the production capacity by about 20%.

The project represents the company Suzano’s most daring undertaking in its history of expansion and consolidation as a global leader in the production of eucalyptus pulp. Eucalyptus is an efficient material for pulp and paper purposes, as the required material per ton of pulp produced is small.

The origin of the name “Cerrado Project” is a reference to the plant’s location, which is Mato Grosso do Sul in the Cerrado, one of Brazil’s largest biomes. A biome is an area on the planet classified according to the plants and animals that live in that exact location.
The municipality of Ribas do Rio Pardo, 100 km from the capital Campo Grande, was chosen to host the plant due to the low level of carbon emissions expected after the start of operation.

The company’s social investment model is premised on operating in communities neighboring its operations, through social projects that enable economic and social development, the strengthening of citizenship, and the awakening of socio-environmental education.

The new plant will use gasification of biomass to replace fossil fuel in lime kilns, a new milestone in eco-efficiency, which highlights the company’s commitment to people and the planet.
