Sustainable project

inspired by the future

Aligned with one of Suzano’s core purposes of renewing life inspired by trees, the Cerrado Project represents the company’s continuous evolution in innovation and sustainability, i.e., in innovability.

The new unit has as one of its differentials the biomass gasification for replacing fossil fuel in lime kilns, which represents a new milestone in ecoefficiency for Suzano and attests to its commitment to people and the planet.


The new plant will be fully sustainable and continue to improve Suzano’s responsibility and respect for the environment, for local communities and for the people of Mato Grosso do Sul.
