    1. The Maracanaú Unit (Fortaleza) does not produce pulp or paper, thus effluents are discharged directly into the public utility's network, as per the required standards, in amounts much lower than other units.

    Additional information:

    In 2020, the load of suspended solids in the effluents discharged dropped 14.3% compared with 2019. This result was obtained despite the 9.9% increase in production in the same period, mainly concentrated in the Imperatriz, Mucuri and Aracruz Units. This shows the efficiency of the primary treatment system at Suzano’s Effluent Treatment Stations.

    In specific terms (kg of total suspended solids per ton of product), Suzano registered a significant reduction of 21% compared with 2019. These results 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 between 0.6 and 1.5 kg/t.
