LD Celulose was born from a partnership between the Austrian Lenzing and the Brazilian Duratex, with the purpose of building one of the largest soluble cellulose factories in the world. Located in the Triângulo Mineiro, between the municipalities of Araguari and Indianópolis, the factory will have a production capacity of 500 thousand tons per year and will use raw material from 100% certified forests. The forest areas used by the company will have a robust monitoring and protection infrastructure.
All the soluble cellulose produced will be exported to Lenzing's factories, where it will be transformed into low environmental impact fiber, to be used in yarns and fabrics for clothes, in addition to other applications, such as wet wipes, face masks and hygiene products.
The new plant will include the Triângulo Mineiro in the list of the largest producers of soluble cellulose in the world and will be a factor of socioeconomic development for the entire region.See more
