New wood for pulp
CMPC, from Guaíba (RS), is constantly improving its production processes, in order to use the available resources in an increasingly rational way. The company maintains a program in which it developed a new hybrid of the genus Corymbia, which proved to be more adapted to the climatic conditions of Rio Grande do Sul and with wood characteristics suitable for the production of higher quality pulp. Already in the first tests, the results showed that the gains with the planting were expressive in pulp production per area. Experience has shown that it has the potential to reduce wood consumption.
Harvest with less age
The harvesting time for these hybrids should also be reduced, since the six-year-old woods have already presented basic densities close to or above 600 kg/m³, surpassing the 550 kg/m³ of hybrids of species such as Eucalyptus globulus, currently cultivated for the company. Today, CMPC already produces seedlings on a larger scale and implants Corymbia hybrid clones in its gardens to further strengthen its production.
