Fuel consumption data—mostly obtained by Suzano in an automated way—were converted into energy consumption based on the basic density and lower heating value of each fuel. In this sense, when available, the data contained in the technical specification sheet of the fuel used were adopted. When not available, the values presented by the National Energy Balance (MME, 2019) were used.
In 2020, we expanded exports of surplus renewable energy by approximately 6%. Projects to replace the energy generated by burning fossil fuels with renewable energy using black liquor generated in our production process contributed directly to this percentage.
