we go much further

CELLULOSE FROM BAHIA TO THE WORLD WITH SUSTAINABILITY

We are Veracel Cellulose, a Brazilian bioeconomy company that produces eucalyptus fiber-based cellulose in a sustainable way. Altogether, our operations cover 11 municipalities in the Costa do Descobrimento region in the extreme south of Bahia. Our shareholders are the Brazilian company Suzano and the Finnish company Stora Enso, both with tradition in the cellulose and paper production.

We are made up of a diverse team and proud of what we do and what distinguishes us as one of the best companies to work for in Brazil.

We are part of a highly biodiverse environment with multiple cultures. We understand that producing cellulose in a sustainable way makes us unique, with great challenges and responsibilities. In this context, we protect the environment in our RPPN Estação Veracel and a preserved area with more than 90,000 hectares.

We promote the social development in the neighboring communities as we understand that our actions positively change the world by contributing to the fulfillment of global goals of sustainable development.

For us, growing means contributing to a better environment for everyone. This is how we seek to live our purpose of being responsible, inspiring people and valuing life.

OUR WAY OF BEING

Our culture is based on five pillars:

Together with the people who work with us, we take care of our safety to be stronger.

Ethics and responsibility go hand in hand and guide our relationship with nature, communities and everything surrounding us.

Together, we can make out path to success a virtuous cycle in which we are protagonists with a strong sense of belonging and making us better people.

Together, the commitment to delivery, excellence and innovation drives our results beyond expectations.

Combining the ability to listen and argue in the most diverse contexts guarantees transparency and fair treatment.

Our way of doing what’s right!

Our Code of Conduct is a synthesis of all the learning we have experienced combined with the most modern compliance concepts. Much more than a document, it is an instrument that best translates Our Way, explains the way we behave and indicates the conduct we expect from all employees and business partners.

For the third time in a row, one of the best companies to work for.

HOW WE PRODUCE OUR CELLULOSE

SEEDLING
NURSERY

Our researchers select the best eucalyptus shoots arriving at the nursery for cultivation and adaptation and then take them to the field as seedlings for planting.

EUCALYPTUS PLANTING

After preparing the soil, our planting machines place and fertilize the seedlings. During the growth period, we carry out maintenance, monitoring and cleaning activities in the area.

HARVEST

Our harvesting structures are made up of containers adapted to serve as an administrative, food and warehouse support point for the teams. Our forest machine operators cut and prepare the eucalyptus trees for transport.

WOOD TRANSPORT

Special trucks transport the eucalyptus logs from the harvesting area to our factory, where the wood will undergo an industrial process for cellulose extraction.

FACTORY

The eucalyptus logs are cut into small pieces (chips), which are cooked at high temperature and pressure until obtaining the brown cellulose pulp that will be bleached through washing and chemical treatments and after dried using press and hot air steam to form the cellulose sheet. After drying, the cellulose sheet is cut, and the bales are packed for transport.

FROM BAHIA TO THE WORLD

The cellulose sheets are transported by truck to the BELMONTE MARITIME TERMINAL (Terminal Marítimo de Belmonte or TMB, in Portuguese). There, the cellulose sheets are loaded onto barges and taken to Portocel, in Espírito Santo. From Portocel, they are sent to international markets to produce tissue paper, writing papers and special papers.

Viveiro
de mudas
Nossos pesquisadores selecionam os melhores brotos de eucalipto que chegam ao viveiro para crescimento e adaptação para depois serem levados como mudas ao campo plantio.
Plantio de eucalipto
Após o preparo do solo, nossas máquinas plantadeiras colocam as mudas e fazem a adubação. Durante o período de crescimento, realizamos atividades de manutenção, monitoramento e limpeza da área.
Colheita
Nossas estruturas dos módulos de colheita são compostas de containers adaptados para servir como ponto de apoio administrativo, de alimentação e de almoxarifado para as equipes. Nossos operadores de máquinas florestais fazem o corte dos eucaliptos e os preparam para o transporte.
Transporte
de madeira
Carretas especiais transportam as toras de eucalipto da área de colheita até nossa fábrica, onde a madeira passará por um processo industrial para a extração da celulose.

Fábrica
As toras de eucalipto são cortadas em pequenos pedaços (cavacos), que são cozidos em alta temperatura e pressão até obter a polpa de celulose marrom que será branqueada por meio de lavagens e tratamentos químicos, seca através de prensa e vapor de ar quente, formando a folha de celulose. Depois de seca, a folha de celulose é cortada e os fardos são embalados para transporte.
DA BAHIA
PARA
O MUNDO
As folhas de celulose são transportadas por carretas para o Terminal Marítimo de Belmonte (TMB). Lá, são carregadas em barcaças e levadas até o Portocel, no Espírito Santo. Do Portocel, a celulose é destinada aos mercados internacionais para produção de papéis sanitários, papéis de escrever e papéis especiais.
