SÃO PAULO – A new joint venture has been established between Austrian speciality fibre business, Lenzing, and Brazilian conglomerate, Duratex S.A, to build one of the largest dissolving wood pulp plants in the world. Set to be based to Minas Gerais State, Brazil, the plant will be developed over the next two years.

The US$1bn venture – called LD Celulose – will see the construction of a DWP mill and associated installation of a 144 megawatts cogeneration plant. DWP is the main raw material used to produce wood-based textile fibre, a biodegradable and – in theory – more sustainable alternative to many traditional textile fibres.
