Brazilian FibraResist kicked off in February the country's first sugar cane fiber mill, with potential to produce up to 72,000 tonnes/yr of mechanical pulp. According to the company, the technology is a result of six years of technological research, with the development of a product that is able to at least partially substitute wood pulp in the production of tissue paper, kraftliner, fluting, boxboard and other brown papers and packaging.
The fiber mill is installed in Lençóis Paulista city, São Paulo state, and demanded investments of Real 25 million ($8 million), of which Real 10.5 million were funded by the São Paulo state Development Agency (Desenvolve SP). The mill was built in a 60,000 m² area, including a production department and inventories.
