Suzano, the world’s largest hardwood pulp producer, will showcase its highly sustainable and innovative eucalyptus-based fluff pulp, Eucafluff®, at this year’s INDEX and CIDEPX conferences in Geneva and Nanjing, for the second consecutive year. These two conferences gather the pulp industry’s leading participants in nonwoven materials comprising decision-makers, managers, and technical personnel. Suzano will be presenting significant advancements in Eucafluff’s product application and performance.
INDEX is one of the world’s largest nonwovens exhibitions exploring the industry’s latest trends and innovations. The event takes place on 18-21 April 2023 in Geneva, Switzerland.
CIDPEX – The China International Disposable Paper Expo – is another important event for Suzano which stages the latest advancements across the tissue paper and disposable hygiene products sector. The event takes place on 12-16 May 2023 in Nanjing, China.
Eucafluff® is made from sustainably managed eucalyptus farms in São Paulo and is the result of nearly 15 years of R&D. Its absorbent panels, made with 100% Eucafluff®, provides a more flexible, more discreet product for consumers. Eucafluff® outperforms its competitors in terms of rewetting, net retention and comfort performance due to the morphology of Suzano’s eucalyptus hardwood, which is smaller, thinner, and highly compressible. The result of this performance provides significant affordability with an 18% reduction of packaging material and 13% reduction in storage and volume. Furthermore, Eucafluff® provides a far more sustainable solution with a smaller carbon footprint and a lower impact on land use, using far less wood to produce the same amount of fluff.
Eucafluff has grown dramatically in recent years, increasing its application and sales across a range of fluff segments. Suzano’s Eucafluff® will continue to pursue an ambitious growth strategy, particularly as it accelerates an ongoing roll-out to the baby diaper segment while also targeting the rapidly expanding adult diaper market.
