Vision and Strategy

We aim to be a leading European company in the efficient production of eucalyptus fibers based on sustainable forest management.

In order to achieve this ambition, we aim to implement processes for the continuous improvement of environmental performance, reducing our ecological footprint, increasing the operational efficiency of our industrial units and raising productivity through the promotion of sustainable forest management.

BEKP fibers capacity increase

Altri currently has a nominal production capacity of over 1 million tons of cellulosic fibers. Celbi and Biotek, which produce Bleaching Eucalyptus Kraft Pulp (BEKP) fibers, have been developing a strategy based on maximizing production efficiency through multiple projects for sustained expansion. Altri is a relevant player in the international eucalyptus fibers market either through the production of bleaching eucalyptus kraft fibers either through the production of dissolving fibers (DWP), produced at Caima mill.

DP project overview

Altri designed and implemented a conversion project at Caima mill in order to move from paper to dissolving fibers. The rational of the project was the capacity limitations of the mill and the conversion opportunity derived from the cooking solution. The conversion project was concluded in June 2015.

Currently the mill is producing around 115,000 tonnes/year of dissolving fibers.

Operating efficiency

Our aim is to be one of the most efficient producer at our customers’ door. To achieve this goal we have designed a strategic approach that is based upon continuous cost efficiency projects and in the identification of value accretive investment opportunities that could reshape the business landscape.

Increasing efficiency

Altri has systematic cost efficiency projects aiming to reduce input cost per tonne and leading to closer circuit approach, reducing systematically the amount of recycling. This is a continuous effort of the entire organization.

Value added aproach

More than adding systematically new capacity Altri's approach is based upon the idea of adding more with the same raw material.

Caima's DWP project is a clear example of the mindset as well as the presence in several international R&D teams that aim to find new economically viable uses for the wood.
