Klabin’s Young Green Force Project trains children from Telêmaco Borba and Ortigueira

In all, 65 students of public schools in the two cities will be trained

Paraná, June 29, 2017 – Children aged 8 to 10 from Ortigueira and Telêmaco Borba now have one more fun and sustainable activity at their disposal.  Continuing its Young Green Force project, launched in 2014 in Telêmaco Borba, Klabin has expanded the initiative to students in Ortigueira. Formerly known as “Guardians of Nature”, the Young Green Force project is targeted at students of the 4th and 5th grades of municipal schools and aims to promote environmental education and raise awareness among them about the environment and the importance of preserving natural wealth, through theoretical and practical activities. The topics addressed include preservation of nature, environmental law, aspects of local flora and fauna, first aid, civic sense, morals and ethics.


The initiative is conducted in partnership with the Environmental Military Police of the State of Paraná and the Education Departments of the two cities. Students of municipal schools were selected by teaching coordinators to participate in the fortnightly activities conducted by representatives from Klabin’s environmental area and members of the Environmental Military Police, who also organize cultural and civic actions.


In the inaugural class held on June 27th, 25 students from the Ernesto Soares dos Santos Rural School, located in the district of Briolândia in Ortigueira, had their first contact with the Young Green Force project. At the occasion, the company’s forest engineer Samantha Paiva talked about biodiversity in Klabin’s forest area, highlighting, for example, the role of local fauna in the food chain, besides showing how important it is for children to understand and help in preserving the environment. The event was attended by the deputy mayor of Ortigueira, Ademir Frazato, and the commander of the 4th company of the Environmental Military Police of Paraná, Captain Marcelo Veigantes.


On June 20, it was the turn of 40 students from the municipal schools of 31 de Março, Péricles Pacheco, Dom Bosco and Maria Emília, in Telêmaco Borba. The inaugural class was also presented by Klabin’s forest engineer and was attended by the mayor of Telêmaco Borba, Dr. Márcio Matos, the representative from the Community Relations area, Priscila Basile, and the Project and Quality manager, Rogério Salamuni, both from Klabin, as well as Environmental Police authorities.


“With this project, we groom multipliers of knowledge and reinforce, in a fun manner, the importance of preserving nature in the communities where we operate,” says Uilson Paiva, Community Relations manager at Klabin.


The certification ceremony of these batches of young environmental agents from Telêmaco Borba and Ortigueira is scheduled for early December this year.

Klabin inaugurates Technology Center in Paraná

The project aspires to be one of the most modern research centers in the pulp and paper industry

Paraná, June 28, 2017 – Klabin is inaugurating today its Technology Center in Telêmaco Borba, Paraná. The new center completes the integration of the research and development fronts of the company’s business teams, a strategy that was adopted to incorporate a global, unified and highly complex vision. With laboratories capable of producing a wide range of forestry products and conducting simultaneous simulations of the production lines at industrial units, the center seeks to anticipate trends and to develop new technologies and sustainable applications. Its construction is part of a plan to invest R$70 million in Research, Development and Innovation (R&D+I) over three years (through 2017), which also includes the acquisition of equipment, the revamping of forestry research labs and the training and recruiting of technicians and researchers.

 

Klabin’s Technology Center will focus on five research fields: wood quality; development of new products and applications for pulp; development of new products and applications for packaging paper; new forestry technological routes; and the environment and sustainability. To support the center’s work, Klabin also structured a local and international network of partnerships with technology incubators, universities and prominent research centers.

 

 “We are taking Klabin’s Research, Development and Innovation activities to an ever higher level. The new Technology Center will boast expert professionals and state-of-the-art laboratories to ensure that Klabin can accelerate its research and development and operate on the cutting edge of its industry,” said Francisco Razzolini, Technology Director at Klabin’s Pulp Unit.

 

The forestry and industrial R&D teams will have over 100 specialized professionals dedicated to research and innovation. The team is formed by forestry, chemical and industrial engineers specializing in the industry. Klabin also has invested heavily in training and recruiting technicians and researchers.

 

The five research routes of Klabin’s Technology Center

 

1. Wood Quality

Developing unique products starts in the forest, whose quality has a direct impact on the production process and end-product quality. The research work will focus on forest productivity and on complex analyses of wood quality.

 

2. Development of new products and applications: pulp

Pulp production should be approached as an integrated forest-mill process, which enables the company to achieve ever higher levels of production efficiency and effectiveness. In addition to improving the pulp’s morphological properties, the research also will focus on selecting pine and eucalyptus species for the production of specific types of pulp, optimizing processes and selecting production additives.

 

3. Development of new products and applications: packaging paper

The main aim is to develop new products for all of Klabin’s packaging paper lines. The research will focus on producing lower grammage products, doing more with less and incorporating special characteristics that confer superior physical properties and resistance to external factors that affect packaging, such as moisture, vapors and oil- and grease-based contaminants.  

 

4. New technological routes based on forestry resources

Klabin’s forestry resources make it highly competitive in the domestic and international markets. This line of research, which is new at the company, aims to diversify the use of the forestry base and of wood components (i.e., pulp, lignin, hemicellulose and resins). Because it cultivates pine and eucalyptus trees, the combination of possibilities offered by these two species expands Klabin’s advantage and leverages the exploration of new technological routes and the development of new products and co-products.

 

5. The environment and sustainability

This line of research focuses on increasing the sustainability of Klabin’s processes and products. It seeks to reuse subproducts from the industrial process, make better use of the waste generated and reduce the consumption of inputs, such as water, energy and chemicals. Special attention will be given to the potential impact from climate change.

 

One year since the Puma Unit’s inauguration

The inauguration of the Technology Center comes exactly one year after another important milestone for the company: the inauguration ceremony for the Puma Unit in Ortigueira, Paraná. The largest investment in Klabin’s history, the unit launched production in March 2016 and represents a milestone in the new growth cycle of the company, which effectively became the only company in Brazil to produce, at the same industrial unit, hardwood pulp, softwood pulp and fluff pulp. With production capacity of 1.5 million tons of pulp, the project received investment of R$8.5 billion, including infrastructure, taxes and contract amendments, and made Klabin self-sufficient in electricity generation.

The innovative path followed by the Puma Unit now extends to Klabin’s Technology Center. As the main Brazilian company in the pulp and paper industry cultivating pine and eucalyptus forests, Klabin sets itself apart and is conducting R&D activities for the two pulp types, hardwood and softwood. The possible combinations are infinite and will create opportunities to explore new technological routes, develop higher-value products and drive incremental and disruptive innovations that will leverage the company’s competitive potential in all business areas.

Unprecedented study supported by Klabin presented at coffee industry forum

The study shows a significant change in packaging consumption by the coffee industry

São Paulo, June 14, 2017 – The study entitled “Evaluation of Packaging and Storage Methods for Specialty Coffees,” which was coordinated by Professor FlávioMeiraBorémfrom the Federal University of Lavras (UFLA-MG), was presented for the first time in Brazil at a lecture during the 7th Coffee Dinner & Coffee Summit, on June 9, in São Paulo. The study, supported by Klabin, a leader in Brazil’s industrial bags segment, shows a significant change in packaging consumption by the coffee industry.

Using sensory testing as reference, the final report of the study confirmed that it is possible to maintain the quality of coffee beans over long storage periods and that high-barrier paper packaging is the most efficient for this process. After 18 months of storage, specialty coffees prepared using the natural or unwashed method stored in high barrier paper packaging achieved the highest score in preserving the beans' original characteristics, of over 82, while vacuum packaging scored 81 and jute 73. In addition to proving the best option for preserving the original characteristics of specialty coffees for export, paper packaging also is considered financially advantageous by the market compared to vacuum packaging, for example.

Organized by the Brazilian Coffee Exporters Council (Cecafé), the Coffee Dinner & Coffee Summit Forum gathers the entire coffee community to promote coffee as a sustainable product and one of the main drivers of Brazil’s agribusiness. The forum’s discussions go beyond the macroeconomic scenario to cover the issues of world trade, global supply, competitiveness and industry sustainability. In this light, Klabin’s corporate DNA drives it to develop solutions that help clients align their activities with this positive agenda. Coffee production is gaining relevance in the company's business and innovation lines, since the packaging is recyclable and made from renewable natural resources with raw materials from planted and certified forests.

About the study

Klabin is a member of the partnership for the unprecedented study “Evaluation of Packaging and Storage Methods for Specialty Coffees,” which, led by professor Flávio Meira Borém from the Federal University of Lavras (UFLA-MG), was conducted in partnership with the Brazil Specialty Coffee Association (BSCA), the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil), Videplast, Bourbon Specialty Coffees and Carmocoffees. The study assessed eight different types of packaging for two types of specialty coffees in the domestic and international market for a period of 18 months. The final report concludes that high-barrier paper packaging may be the most efficient in preserving the original characteristics of specialty coffee for export.

Endangered jaguar identified in Klabin’s forests

The animal was spotted on the Monte Alegre Farm, the company’s forest area located in Telêmaco Borba, Paraná

Paraná, June 8, 2017 –Klabin has identified, for the first time ever, a jaguar in its forest area in Paraná state. The feline is considered critically endangered and vulnerable based, respectively, on the state list of the Environmental Institute of Paraná (IAP) and on the federal list of the Chico Mendes Institute for Biodiversity Conservation (ICMBio). The animal was spotted on the Monte Alegre Farm, the company’s forest area located in Telêmaco Borba, Paraná.


The registration of the species Panthera onca, which had not been seen in this part of Paraná for over 20 years, was made possible by the wildlife monitoring activities conducted by Klabin in partnership with the consulting firm Casa da Floresta, which use the motion-sensitive nighttime cameras on permanent standby in the observation areas. This type of monitoring has already led to the identification of 136 mammals since 2011, with 12,960 hours recorded over the last six years of monitoring.


Identification of the jaguar is a positive indicator of the performance of the forest steward using mosaic agriculture carried out by Klabin. By integrating pine and eucalyptus planted forests with preserved native forests, this agricultural system supports the formation of ecological corridors, which allow native wildlife to roam their natural habitat and contributes directly to protecting the soil and biodiversity. Klabin, which preserves more than 40% of its total forest area, has 229,000 hectares of forests planted with pine and eucalyptus trees and 214,000 hectares of native forests.


The habitat of the Panthera onca, the largest feline on the American continent and the only one in this region belonging to the Panthera genus, spans from the North of Argentina to the South of the United States, reaching its highest concentrations in Brazil’s tropical forests. The jaguar has a tawny yellow coat with dark spots, short limbs and a large, rounded head. Due to deforestation, which leads to habitat loss and consequently less abundant prey and more time spent hunting, its numbers have been considerably reduced. In Brazil’s Atlantic Forest, which has suffered major modifications to its landscape, it is estimated that, over the last 15 years, the jaguar population has fallen by at least 80%, with only some 300 specimens remaining divided into eight sub-populations of the species. Its presence and abundance depend on factors such as significant presence of water and well-preserved native vegetation, which support various wildlife species belonging to the jaguar’s food chain. These unique characteristics are found in the forest areas maintained by Klabin.

Artists inspire World Environment Day at Klabin

Klabin celebrates World Environment Day today by inviting its employees and the society to reflect on the question: how would the planet be in the future if we all start caring for the environment today?

São Paulo, June 5, 2017 - Klabin celebrates World Environment Day today by inviting its employees and the society to reflect on the question: how would the planet be in the future if we all start caring for the environment today?

The company posed this question to five Brazilian artists, each with different traits and styles, who responded in the form of exclusive drawings that were transformed into postcards by the company and distributed to all employees. The idea was to encourage them to inspire others to think of alternatives for a world that is in harmony with the environment, an idea that is inherent to the company’s DNA and which is reflected in all the social and environmental actions in the regions where it operates.

This action follows the concept of the “It's in Our Nature” campaign launched at the start of the year and will be disseminated in the company's internal communication initiatives and on social networks (Instagram and LinkedIn), as well as in posters at units all across Brazil and in marketing e-mails to customers, partners and other stakeholders.
