Jacobs Engineering Group was awarded a contract by CMPC
Groups Celulose Riograndense Ltda. for the design and
supply of an integrated chlorine dioxide plant for its pulp expansion project in Guaiba, Río Grande
do Sul, Brazil.
Officials did not disclose the contract value in Tuesday's
announcement. They noted that when completed, the plant is
anticipated to produce 60 tpd of chlorine dioxide.
Under the terms of the contract, Jacobs is designing and
engineering the plant, supplying key equipment and materials

We are pleased to leverage our experience with many
pulp mill clients in Asia to support CMPC on this project," said Jacobs executive
vice president Andy Kremer.
"This is our first integrated chlorine dioxide plant supplied
within South America, and we look forward to working with CMPC
to help them achieve competitive advantage through our
integrated process, which offers the lowest-cost method of
producing chlorine dioxide available.
Celulose Riograndense Ltda. is a business division of
Empresas CMPC, an integrated forestry group headquartered in
Chile, and the fourth-largest pulp supplier in the world.
