Stora Enso Veracel Mill

Veracel Mill

Veracel Mill in the state of Bahia, eastern Brazil, is a state-of-the-art pulp mill run as a joint venture together with Brazilian pulp and paper company Suzano.

Veracel manages eucalyptus plantations and operates a pulp mill in Eunápolis, Bahia in Brazil. Stora Enso owns 50% of Veracel.

Veracel protects and restores biodiversity in the areas of natural Atlantic rainforest. When Veracel’s plantations were established in 1991, only a fraction of the original Atlantic rainforest was left in the region following extensive logging and clearing for cattle ranching. Since the plantations were established, Veracel has worked systematically to protect and restore local biodiversity. 128,000 hectares of land is now dedicated to rainforest preservation and restoration, and Veracel aims to restore approximately 400 hectares of rainforest habitat every year by planting native species. Between 1994 and 2022, a total of 7,900 hectares of forest have been restored.
