AkzoNobel Chemical Island starts supply to world's biggest single line pulp mill

Gerald Ondrey

AkzoNobel's (Amsterdam, The Netherlands; www.akzonobel.com) new €90-million Jupiá Chemical Island in Brazil is now operational and has started supplying the Eldorado Brasil Celulose pulp mill, which is the biggest in the world.

Operated by the company's Pulp and Performance Chemicals business, the state-of-the-art Jupiá facility represents one of AkzoNobel's largest investments in Latin America. It will supply, store and handle all chemicals for the 1.5-million ton/yr Eldorado mill under an agreement that runs for the next 15 years.

As well as providing long-term employment for around 60 people, the Jupiá plant will play an important role in ensuring a sustainable eucalyptus pulp supply to the global marketplace.

AkzoNobel has a well-established pulp and paper chemicals operation in Brazil, where the company already operates the Chemical Island concept at several pulp mills, as well as running production units in Jacareí, Eunápolis, Três Lagoas, Rio de Janeiro and Jundiaí.
