Innovation, technology and transformation

Ecolig has 100% bio-based content, is obtained from highly photo-synthetically efficient Eucalyptus trees by a low-carbon footprint process. In this way markets and products become integral parts of a sustainable bio-economy

Join us in building the
future of bioeconomy

Suzano Ecolig is the first technical eucalyptus kraft lignin and, due to its plant-based origin and intrinsic chemical and physical properties Ecolig can be used in binders, elastomers, antioxidants and agro products, among others..

Ecolig is much more than a product: it is a natural high-performance sustainable platform for replacing many fossil-based materials. It is obtained from eucalyptus cultivated and harvested in Brazil with zero deforestation and using certified and sustainable forest management practices.

A co-product of our pulp production, Ecolig does not require neither additional area nor additional trees and does not compete with edible feedstock.

Moreover, it is produced in Limeira, São Paulo, at the world’s first certified eucalyptus lignin production plant. Like all Suzano mills, Limeira’s energy supply overwhelmingly relies on renewable sources.

Ecolig is part of something bigger

At Suzano, everything starts with trees. We plant and cultivate them, then transform them into innovative and sustainable bioproducts that are part of your daily life. For us, trees are the past, the present and the future.

Our eucalyptus plantations are highly productive. In all our forest operations we adopt the sustainable mosaic method, interspersing eucalyptus trees with native vegetation. In this way we help the conservation of soil, water and biodiversity in the land where we grow our feedstock.

Certifications

At Suzano, we have a genuine commitment to sustainable development; therefore, we always strive to improve our processes and products. Our certifications, alongside other initiatives, are part of our routine efforts.
