Under a 15-year agreement signed in 2022, Nouryon will commission its IMM for the world’s leading producer of eucalyptus pulp.

This will be Nouryon's sixth IMM site in Brazil since 2005, to support the country’s fast-growing pulp industry. The new $2.8 billion pulp mill in Mato Grosso do Sul is one of the largest private-sector investments currently under development in the country and anticipated annual production capacity is 2.55 million tons per year.

The concept provides Suzano with tailor-made on-site solutions to manage essential raw materials needed in pulp production. Nouryon will invest in a manufacturing facility that uses renewable electricity from Suzano’s new pulp mill to produce sodium chlorate. On-site facilities reduce transportation of raw materials, improve overall safety, and provide for circularity by design. The production process will also generate green hydrogen, which can provide important sustainability benefits.

Nouryon, is committed to providing our customers with innovative and sustainable solutions while continuously optimizing our own operations and environmental footprint. Supplying both hydrogen peroxide and sodium chlorate in the region for the first time strengthens our leading position in specialty chemicals and underscores our commitment to growing with our customers.
