Leading European producer of eucalyptus pulp

Ence is the leading European company in eucalyptus pulp production and the second in terms of market share. Our pulp production capacity is up to 1,100,000 tons annually.

The company produces high quality eucalyptus pulp at our biofarms in Navia (Asturias) and Pontevedra, where we apply the most environmentally friendly technologies and continuous improvement processes to reinforce our competitiveness and quality. This allows us to export about 85% of our pulp production to Europe where the most demanding world market customers are found, using an advanced logistics system.

Pulp is used mainly as a raw material for paper production. In 2018, 56% of Ence’s pulp was used to manufacture tissue, 9% for printing and writing paper, 32% for specialties and the remaining 3% for packaging production.

Ence has incorporated the Best Available Techniques (BAT), as defined for the pulp and paper sector under the international regulation BREF, and Best Environmental Practice (BEP) into its production processes.
