    Additional information:

    In 2020, generation of non-hazardous industrial solid waste increased by 6% 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 non-hazardous industrial solid waste per ton of product), Suzano registered, in the same period, a reduction of 1.7% in specific generation, from 133.5 kg/t, in 2019, to 131.3 kg/t in 2020. These numbers are in the baseline range of the international standards set out by the IPPC (Integrated Pollution, Prevention and Control 2015 – European Commission), which establishes as best performance results those below 140.0 kg/t.

    In 2020, the Belém Unit reduced the use of post-consumption fibers, which add a large amount of impurities to the process, which are later purged by the purification system with the generation of waste. The unit started to use pre-consumption trimmings and virgin pulp produced at the Imperatriz Unit.

    At the Três Lagoas Unit, there was an increase of 41% in 2020, due to the allocation of surplus bark. This is a temporary event, since the unit implemented and started the operation of a Waste Treatment Center with capacity to compost bark, transforming them into a product with agricultural value (organomineral fertilizers).

    Some of the initiatives that contributed to this result are described in indicator “Management of solid waste in industrial operations”.
