LENZING – Cellulosic fibre producer Lenzing has announced a partnership with wood panel producer Duratex to explore the possibility of building a dissolving wood pulp (DWP) plant near Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The companies hope that this project – which looks set to create the biggest single line DWP plant in the world and could cost over US$1 billion – will enable them to increase capacities while sourcing and processing the necessary raw materials in a sustainable way.

Canopy, the Canadian not-for-profit environmental organisation, has stated that in order to make certain projects of this kind do not contribute to a loss of biodiversity Lenzing must continue to use a closed-loop system, as well as ensuring conservation planning and protection legacies are an imperative element of its work.
