Conteúdo Principal: 

Seeking to diversify its activities and supply the cellulose industry, in 1995 TANAC set up its Woodchip Unit in the city of Rio Grande, in the south of Brazil.

One of the most modern woodchip producing facilities in the world, set up on a 260 mil m² area, TANAC's woodchip processing plant invests in technological improvement in order to keep its globally leading position as far as quality, production and shipping of its products are concerned. With FSC® certified wood, TANAC guarantees the customer a quality product with responsible forestry management, since its origin. The 70 fully qualified employees working at this unit ensure operational success.

The Woodchip Unit is equipped to produce 700 thousand tons of woodchips per year and has 90 thousand ton storage capacity at any time. The woodchips are kept outdoors though fully protected from any possible contamination.

Using conveyor belts, TANAC ships its woodchips from a contiguous port terminal located 1,400 meters away from the factory. Boasting one of the highest compaction rates in ship loading, the company is considered one of the world's fastest at this activity.

TANAC's acacia hardwood chips are also exported to energy and woodchip board producing markets, thus diversifying and widening their field of application.
