Belmonte Marine Terminal
The Veracel’s pulp production
is shipped by barge, along the coast , from the Belmonte Marine Terminal (TMB), built in 2001. The product is taken to Portocel , in Espírito Santo, where it is exported.
The marine transportation system has materialized the company’s concern about sustainability and the future generations
, as each trip by barge eliminates 384 trips by truck from the BR-101 highway, in addition to reducing fossil fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
The Belmonte Marine Terminal has buildings for warehouses, support, and the system for berthing and waiting for barges. A tugboat and three barges operate in a relay system that allows for carrying up to 1,150,000 tons of pulp a year.
