AkzoNobel is planning to invest €80 million in the construction of a new pulp Chemical Island facility in Brazil. The plant is operated by the company's Pulp and Paper Chemicals business, Eka Chemicals. It will supply the Suzano Maranhão pulp mill which is being constructed in Imperatriz, Maranhão, Brazil, and is expected to come on stream in the last quarter of 2013.
This is AkzoNobel's second largest investment in Brazil in the past 12 months and further expands Eka Chemicals' sustainability-focused Chemical Island concept.

The investment will involve supplying, storing and handling all chemicals for the 1.5 million ton per year pulp mill.
