With the slated expansion, Fibria’s total production capacity, considering all its units in
Brazil, will increase from the current 5.3 million tonne of pulp per year to 7.25 million tonne
of pulp per year.

Fibria, Brazilian market pulp producer will increase the production capacity of its new pulp mill in Três Lagoas, (Horizonte 2 Project) by 200,000 tonnes per year. Combining the new line with the already operational plant, the Três Lagoas unit will expand its production capacity by 150 percent, exceeding the total capacity of 3.2 million tonne of pulp per year. With this, Fibria’s total production capacity, considering all its units in Brazil, will increase from the current 5.3 million tonne of pulp per year to 7.25 million tonne of pulp per year.

Fibria’s Três Lagoas unit follows the modern environmental design including latest concepts in eco-design with cleaner and more efficient production processes. In addition, all the energy consumed is generated by the unit itself using biomass in the form of eucalyptus bark and the liquid biomass resulting from the industrial process. The surplus energy will positively contribute to Brazil’s energy grid and benefit the energy matrix by using renewable sources. All this makes Fibria the world leader in the production of eucalyptus pulp.
