In 2020, the gross nitrogen balance of effluents discharged increase by 11% 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 nitrogen per ton of product), Suzano registered a slight increase, less than 1%, 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 0.10 and 0.25 kg/t.
