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
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.
Evolution of cellulosic fibers production capacity (tonnes per year)
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.
