Eldorado Brasil, a pulp supplier for the North American tissue market, reached the mark of 5,586 tons of pulp produced in a single day, a new production record, last Sunday, the 18th. The company started pulp production in November 2012 and, since then, has accumulated successive records. The industry has an installed capacity of 1.5 million tons of pulp per year but has been operating above this limit since 2014.
Last year, for example, 1.77 million tons were produced; in the first quarter of 2021, 439 thousand tons of the fiber were manufactured – an increase of 12% over the same period last year.
The most recent achievement was the milestone of 14 million tons of pulp manufactured at the Três Lagoas (MS) plant – the number exceeds, by 1,250 million tons, the total expected by the company.
Currently, Eldorado has more than five thousand employees. Of this total, more than 600 people were hired during the first half of 2021 – an average of 100 new employees per month – an advance that sustains the company’s activities in Mato Grosso do Sul.
