Klabin meeting with mayors highlights sustainable regional development

 The event gathered mayors, city councilmembers and regional leaders  

Telêmaco Borba, April 7, 2016 – On Thursday (7), Klabin organized the meeting entitled “Prospects for Sustainable Regional Development” at the HarmoniaClubin Telêmaco Borba, Paraná.The event was attended by mayors and city council presidents from 13 cities, as well as regional leaders and the company’s executives.

The purpose of the event was to present to the cities’ representatives the work being conducted by the consulting firm Interação Urbana, which was engaged by Klabin to formulate the guidelines for regional development, and to highlight the new opportunities created by the Puma Unit, the company’s newly inaugurated pulp plant in Ortigueira.A presentation was also made to introduce the Solid Waste Project sponsored by Klabin in partnership with the seven member cities of the Caminhos do Tibagi Consortium.

Klabin’s Projects and Industrial Technology Director, Francisco Razzolini, gave a presentation on the company’s current situation, the Puma Unit and the region’s future prospects.The event was also attended by Sadi Carlos de Oliveira, Industrial Pulp Director, and José Totti, Forest Director.Architect and urbanist João Paulo Ribeiro Santana, head of the organization Paraná Cidade for the Ponta Grossa region, addressed the urbanistic challenges involved in creating sustainable cities in the Campos Gerais region.

Regional Development – Targeting the 12 cities that will share the incremental ICMS tax generated by Klabin’s new plant and another two due to geographic reasons (see below), the paper Regional Development Guidelines conducted a comprehensive mapping of the region from a strategic viewpoint based on a technical diagnosis.The study identified the needs and opportunities of the cities in various areas, such as education, health, safety, infrastructure and management.“The Puma Unit creates opportunities for cities in its area of influence so that they see themselves as a single region and structure integrated projects and actions that resolve their challenges,” said Uilson Paiva, Community Relations Manager at Klabin.

Meanwhile, the Solid Waste Project mapped in seven cities (see below) all aspects involving waste collection in order to adapt them to the National Solid Waste Policy (Federal Law 12,305/2010).The analysis resulted in the creation of an Integrated Urban Waste Management Plan that identified the needs of each city.Klabin will participate in the implementation and improvements by acquiring equipment (conveyor belts, pallet jack scale, bale elevator, waste trolleys), renovating and adapting facilities, environmental education, landfill projects and other investments.

During the event, Klabin introduced the three trucks that will be donated to the cities of Ortigueira, Imbaú and Tamarana to be used in waste recycling.“Proper waste disposal is a national problem that is very present in the region, which is why it is being addressed by the consortium of municipalities through a sustainable system, from recycling at households and public waste collection system to adequate waste treatment,” said Klabin’s Environment Manager, Julio Nogueira.The Solid Waste Project is part of the Socio-Environmental Action Plan of the Puma Unit, which includes all of Klabin’s social investments that draw on financing from the Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES).

  2. Cândido de Abreu
  3. Congonhinhas
  4. Curiúva
  5. Figueira
  6. Imbaú

Klabin produces the first pulp bale at its new plant in Paraná

On last Friday, March 4, the company produced the first pulp bale at the Puma Unit, which already holds Chain of Custody certification from FSC® - Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC-C129105).

Klabin produces the first pulp bale at its new plant in Paraná


Ortigueira, March 7, 2016 - Klabin, the largest paper producer and exporter in Brazil and the leading manufacturer of paper and board for packaging, corrugated board packaging and industrial sacks, announces the startup of its new pulp mill located in Ortigueira, Paraná. On last Friday, March 4, the company produced the first pulp bale at the Puma Unit, which already holds Chain of Custody certification from FSC® - Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC-C129105).


The new unit’s construction was completed in 24 months and on budget.Total investment in the project was R$8.5 billion, which included all facilities, taxes and contractual corrections.


“Klabin once again demonstrates its capacity to transform dreams into reality by fulfilling the delivery of a construction project that represents the largest investment ever made in its 117-year history.The commissioning of the Puma Unit is an important milestone in our ten-year growth cycle, launched in 2011, that we have planned for the company,” said Fabio Schvartsman, Klabin’s general director.


“It was a huge challenge to transform into reality a project of such vast complexity.We executed construction efficiently, safely and agilely while simultaneously investing in training local workers, infrastructure projects and social actions that will contribute to the region’s development," emphasized Francisco Razzolini, director of Industrial Projects and Technology.


The Puma Unit is expected to create 1,400 direct and indirect jobs, considering both the industrial and forestry operations.The unit will have the capacity to produce 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, making it the world’s only industrial unit designed to produce fluff pulp from the three fibers.More than 90% of the new mill’s pulp production has already been sold.


Klabin’s hardwood pulp is marketed under the brand LyptusCel, while its softwood pulp was christened PineCel.Called PineFluff, Klabin’s fluff pulp will serve the domestic market, which today is an importer of this raw material, which is used to make diapers, sanitary pads and other products.


The new mill will also have two of the largest power generation turbines in the world ever manufactured for the pulp and paper industry.The unit will have generation capacity of 270MW, of which 150MW is surplus (sufficient to power a city with 500,000 people), which will make Klabin self-sufficient in power generation.The average supply distance between the forestry operation and the new mill is 72 kilometers, which will ensure the competitiveness and low-cost of wood transportation.

Klabin formalizes agreement for a study of its new paper coffee sack

The packaging protects aroma and flavor and better preserves the original characteristics of the beans, while also enabling the product to be stored for longer

São Paulo, January 11, 2016 - Klabin, Brazil’s largest paper producer and exporter, formalized an agreement with the Federal University of Lavras (UFLA), the Specialty Coffee Association of Brazil (BSCA), the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil) and packaging maker Videplast Indústria de Embalagens for the study "Development of Packaging and Storage Methods for Specialty Coffees," which will be coordinated by Flávio Meira Borém, a professor in the Engineering Department at UFLA. The study will analyze the characteristics of specialty coffee during the entire process, from the producer and stocking period to its export, storage and consumption in the country of destination.

The new coffee packaging developed by Klabin, in partnership with Videplast, is made from high-strength extensible paper that can be printed in up to eight colors. With capacity of 30 kilograms, the sack is hermetically sealed through a system that uses a film that serves as a barrier and protects against light, while also featuring an "Easy Open" system that makes it easier for the end client to open and store the coffee. These innovations help to ensure the product's safety and the quality of the coffee beans, while preserving their original characteristics.

During the study, analyses of the sensorial, physical and chemical properties of the lots were conducted at set intervals. The study considered various lots of natural coffee and hulled coffee cherries. The study's findings should show if the different materials used in the packaging offer positive results for protecting the sensorial attributes of specialty coffees. 

The project, which was formalized last Wednesday (6), also enjoys the support of Bourbon Specialty Coffees and Carmocoffees. Representatives from the companies and institutions were at UFLA to sign the agreement during a ceremony held in the room Salão dos Conselhos located in the Dean’s building.
