Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

Pöyry, Finland, reports that it 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, Brazil. 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 fiber pulp from eucalyptus.

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 areas, Pöyry noted.

"Pöyry has been working with Lwarcel since 2008 on studies for alternatives, logistics, feasibility, and conceptual design. It also has been engaged in environmental impact studies," Marcelo Cordaro, head of Pöyry's operations in Brazi, said..

The value of the order was not disclosed.
