MORE COMPETITIVE AND MORE SUSTAINABLE
Veracel strives to be a good investments option for its shareholders on a daily basis, and this means chasing results based on innovation, with safety and a lot of creativity in order to be sustainable, provide high quality products strategically manage costs.
We are committed to improve our environmental performance. Since Veracel is a company created based on environment and cellulose production technologies which are still considered modern nowadays, efforts to improve this performance is challenging, However, we consider that we always can improve. This is the case of the waste management. We kept our 99% recycling average in 2020.
In addition, we kept our record of 22.3 m³ consumed to produce one ton of cellulose in 2020, the same level obtained in 2019. These initiatives already represent a successful work. We expect to stabilize the processes, reach new improvements and evolve our results.
We have the continuous challenge of being more and more efficient in energy generations, while consuming responsibly. The partnership with an ethanol production plant, next to the Veracel site, is excellent for both companies. The burning of sugarcane pulp in an auxiliary boiler has become a great deal, transforming a potentially polluting waste into another source for the electric power generation.
