    In 2020, the gross balance of Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) of effluents discharged, increased by 19% compared with 2019. This reflects the 9.9% increase in production in the same period, mainly concentrated in the Imperatriz, Mucuri and Aracruz Units.

    In specific terms (kg of BOD per ton of product), Suzano recorded an increase of 8.4%—from 6.33 kg/t in 2019 to 6.86 kg/t in 2020. The number is below the target established for the industrial units (7.00 kg/t). Despite these numbers, Suzano remained within the baseline range of international standards (between 8.00 and 23.00 kg/t) set out by the IPPC (Integrated Pollution, Prevention and Control 2015 – European Commission).
