Dr. José Lopes, biologist and professor at the State University of Londrina (UEL), inaugurated the program by mentioning the main characteristics of the mosquito and the importance of eliminating its eggs. Dr. João Antônio Zequi, another UEL professor, presented researches conducted in the university that showed encouraging results in controlling the proliferation of this mosquito. The event was held at the Municipal Education Department amphitheater, in which around 150 people participated.


In existence for 15 years, the Caiubi Program is organized by Klabin in partnership with the municipal governments of Telêmaco Borba, Imbaú and Ortigueira. The purpose of this environmental education initiative is to annually provide teachers with content to disseminate the concepts of ecological awareness in the Municipal Children’s Education Centers (CMEI) and municipal schools.

Klabin Conducts Maintenance Shutdown at Correia Pinto Unit

 To ensure the plant continues to operate properly, the company will conduct a maintenance shutdown from August 1 to 26

 

Correia Pinto, July 20, 2016 – Klabin, Brazil's largest paper producer and exporter and the leading manufacturer of paper and board for packaging, corrugated board packaging and industrial bags, will conduct the Annual Maintenance Shutdown of the Correia Pinto Unit, in Santa Catarina, from August 1 to 26. The shutdown involves interrupting paper production to perform the maintenance required to ensure that all equipment continues to operate properly, the safety of the facility and the quality of the production process.

During the period, 60 outsourced companies and some 1,400 outsourced workers will be involved in the activities. Some of the main activities include inspections of boilers, digesters, power generation and distribution systems and production process control systems. The number of temporary workers requires additional logistics and infrastructure, such as transportation, accommodation, meals and other items that help boost demand and the local economy of Correia Pinto and the surrounding region. Other benefits generated by the shutdown include the generation of taxes for the city and increased traffic at hotels, bars, restaurants and stores, as well as support services for accommodating workers in the city.

During the operation, the local community may notice different smells and noises coming from the plant, especially on the first two days, which mark the start of maintenance activities, and on days 25 and 26, when operations are resumed. However, please note that these changes do not pose any threat to public health or to the environment.

Klabin and Childhood Brasil promote Puma Seminar for Childhood

 

Paraná, July 14, 2016 – Klabin, in partnership with Childhood Brasil, will end the Puma Project for Childhood in the cities of Telêmaco Borba, Ortigueira and Imbaú, in Paraná, with the PUMA Seminar for Childhood, to be held tomorrow (15), in the auditorium of Colégio Positivo, in Telêmaco Borba.

A result of the partnership between Klabin and Childhood Brasil, the Project concluded the 40-hour training program attended by around 180 professionals from children and adolescent protection institutions in the three cities, all within the area of influence of the Puma Project. The group, which is part of the network of protection against sexual violence, was formed by professionals from several areas, such as healthcare, welfare, education, civil society organizations, child protection services, Public Prosecution and public safety, in addition to teachers and members of the Military Police force, who received special training.

After five training modules held in each city, aiming to enable reflection and improve the service rendered to children and adolescents that were victims of sexual violence, the Seminar will conclude the project by gathering participants in lectures and debates that will deepen the knowledge and training on themes such as childhood, family, sexuality, network action, violence against children and adolescents and others.

Professor Dr. Paulo Endo, from the Psychology Institute of USP and winner of the Jabuti Literature Award, will begin with a lecture on violence called “A força bruta, o corpo e a linguagem,” which invites participants to dive into the subject of violence and the possibilities to fight against it, seeking to expand common conceptions of the community in general.

In the afternoon, Thais Gava, psychologist and holder of a masters’ degree in collective health, will bring the perspective of sexual rights, as a proposal to prevent sexual violence against children and adolescents. Together with public health physician and Master in public health Raquel Marques, director of the Artemis organization, Gava will propose a discussion on deconstructing violence based on the reflection about gender issues.

The seminar will conclude with a presentation of Action Plans for each city, which were developed for the execution of activities among the networks of protection of children and adolescents. A result of intense debate and exchange throughout the training sessions, the presentation of plans by local representatives is the materialization of the group’s work, which undertakes the commitment of advancing the actions and invites the entire community to contribute to a childhood free from sexual abuse and exploitation.

Klabin inaugurates its new pulp mill in Paraná state

The Puma Unit is the largest investment ever in the company’s 117-year history

Klabin inaugurates its new pulp mill in Paraná state

The Puma Unit is the largest investment ever in the company’s 117-year history

Ortigueira, June 28, 2016 – Klabin, Brazil's largest paper producer and exporterand the leading manufacturer of paper and board for packaging, corrugated board packaging and industrial bags, inaugurated today its new pulp mill located in Ortigueira, Paraná.The Puma Unit represents an important mark in the company’s new growth cycle.With the new mill, Klabin becomes a fiber solutions company by being the only one in Brazil to produce, at the same plant, bleached pulp from hardwood fibers, bleached pulp from softwood fibers and fluff pulp.


The inauguration ceremony was attended by Brazil’s acting president, Michel Temer, the governor of Paraná, Beto Richa, the mayor of Ortigueira, Lourdes Banach, as well as representatives from federal, state and local governments, rural producers, business partners and clients.The guests were welcomed by Klabin’s chairman of the board, Paulo Galvão, and other directors, and by the company’s CEO, Fabio Schvartsman, and its other executive officers.

 

“It’s imperative for a country of continental dimensions, like Brazil, to have a solid and competitive industrial sector.And Klabin shares this vision.It’s at the core of our corporate DNA,” said Galvão during the inauguration ceremony.According to Israel Klabin, who also sits on the company’s board, “the project that most inspires us is the one to develop sustainably.The one to create an environment of stability that allows us to think further ahead and benefit a greater number of stakeholders.”


The highest private-sector investment ever made in the state of Paraná, the project required total investment of R$8.5 billion, including infrastructure and recoverable taxes, and construction was completed in 24 months and within the initial budget.The Puma Unit will have annual production capacity of 1.5 million tons of pulp, with 1.1 million tons of bleached hardwood pulp (eucalyptus) and 400,000 tons of bleached softwood pulp (pine), a portion of which will be converted into fluff pulp.With power generation capacity of 270 MWavg and 150 MW of surplus power, which is sufficient to supply a city with a population of 500,000, the new operation further improves Klabin’s electricity self-sufficiency.The Puma Unit reinforces Klabin’s commitment to best sustainability practices by combining high forest productivity, efficient production and logistics operations and last-generation environmental technology.

 

“Puma is a Brazilian experience in excellence and boldness that we hope will serve as an example for the country that we want for our children and grandchildren.It reinforces Klabin’s already globally recognized commitment to the environment.And it shows that you can invest in projects that are concerned with social aspects, with this concern translated into dozens of projects involving health, education, housing and recreation,” said Schvartsman during the ceremony.

 

Klabin’s hardwood pulp is marketed under the brand LyptusCel™, while its softwood pulp was christened PineCel™.Called PineFluff™, Klabin’s fluff pulp, which for the first time in Brazil is produced on a large scale from softwood pulp, gives the domestic market the possibility of substituting imports of this raw material, which is an important input in the manufacture of diapers, disposable sanitary pads and other absorbent products.


The new mill’s operations were commissioned in March, with production of the first pulp bale, which already held Chain of Custody certification from FSC® - Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC-C129105).April marked the mill’s first shipment, with 20,000 tons of hardwood pulp departing the Port of Paranaguá destined for China.To export production from the Puma Unit, Klabin developed a Logistics Unit in Paranaguá that allows for the use of rail and highway freight solutions.With this new structure, the company expects to distribute 1 million tons of pulp every year.More than 90% of the mill’s production has already been sold.


With built-up area of 200 hectares, which is equivalent to 200 football fields, the construction project involved around 40,000 workers.In all phases of the project, the company prioritized the use of local labor.Today, the new unit is responsible for 1,400 direct and indirect jobs, considering both the industrial and forestry operations, and contributes to the local community through social actions, vocational training programs and projects to promote regional development.During the investment phase, R$700 million in taxes were generated, and with its startup, the mill will generate annual tax receipts of R$300 million.

 

To determine its social investments, in 2012, Klabin conducted a social diagnosis of the municipalities of Ortigueira, Imbaú and Telêmaco Borba, which represents the new mill’s direct area of influence.Through a broad participatory process that involved the many different stakeholders in urban and rural areas, it developed the Puma Project’s Social and Environmental Action Plan, which comprises various initiatives in the areas of health, education, culture, recreation, the environment, family farming, etc.


The plan’s infrastructure projects included paving roads in the districts of Campina and Minuano, improvements to the Strategic road and building a new bridge to connect the left and right banks of the Tibagi River.Klabin also built a 23.5-km rail branch connecting the mill to the Central do Paraná Railroad.The average distance between forest area and the Puma Unit is 72 km, assuring the mill a high level of competitiveness.Klabin’s forestry operation in the Telêmaco and Ortigueira region, which is one of the world’s largest, supplies both its Monte Alegre and Puma units.Klabin built 100 km of power transmission lines for the new mill, which features the world’s two largest power generation turbines to be manufactured for the pulp and paper industry.
