Jointly building green and low-carbon industries

Mr. Ambassador Jos é Carlos da Fonseca Junior, Executive Director of the Brazilian Forest Industry Association, delivered a keynote report on "Brazilian Forest Industry", introducing the outstanding contributions of the Brazilian forest industry to achieving carbon reduction and neutrality in the current climate crisis. The Brazilian forest industry has developed approximately 5000 renewable, recyclable, and mostly

biodegradable bio based products, with a renewable energy generation share of 90%.




Mr. Jo ã o Cordeiro, the head of the pulp and paper line of AFRY Group, introduced the global paper market dynamics and the development status of the pulp and paper industry in China and Brazil, with the topic of "Global Pulp and Paper Market Dynamics - Focusing on Brazil". Jo ã o Cordeiro mentioned in the report that the global pulp trade volume has reached 70 million tons, and the fastest growing demand in paper products is in tissues and packaging paper, which has driven the industry's further increase in demand for pulp and recycled fibers.



Leveraging the Green Advantages of Biomass

Realizing High Value Utilization of Resources

Professor Jin Yongcan, from Nanjing Forestry University, introduced the main sources and development process of carbon emissions in the pulp and paper industry under the title of "Carbon Attributes and Lignin Resource Utilization". He analyzed the problems faced in achieving the "dual carbon" goal, and pointed out that the high-quality and sustainable development of the paper industry requires strengthening the reuse of waste resources, reducing energy consumption, and using industrial lignin generated from pulp for agricultural and forestry crop production, It is an effective way to achieve the utilization of lignin resources and carbon balance of fiber raw materials.



Researcher Xu Junming from the Institute of Forestry Chemical Industry, Chinese Academy of Forestry, published a report titled "Development and Frontier Technologies of Lignin Based Chemicals", introducing strategies for high-value utilization of wood fibers, such as thermal conversion of forest biomass into biofuel or separation and utilization to obtain lignin and cellulose. The focus was on the development and cutting-edge technologies of lignin based chemicals, such as lignin separation, sulfonation, capping, and derivative electrocatalytic reactions.





Jose Tomas Corthorn, Chief Representative of CMPC China, published a report on the theme of "CMPC's Strategy towards a Circular Bioeconomy", sharing CMPC's rich and expanding experience in the entire value chain of the wood industry, and introducing its research and innovation in biomass products, sustainable packaging, pulp molding products, and other areas.
