Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

The Project involves the development, construction, and operation of a eucalyptus plantation and kraft pulp mill in the Concepción region of Paraguay covering an area of 190,000 hectares of former cattle ranch lands. The mill was conceived to produce 1,500,000 air-dried tons per annum (ADt/a) of bleached eucalyptus pulp. The mill is expected to produce 200 MW of renewable energy, generating a surplus of 100 MW. The land will be partially converted to eucalyptus plantations to supply the mill in future years, with an estimated 47 percent of this land to remain under existing, natural land cover in preservation. Concepción lies at the margins of the Paraguay river and is located around 400 km north of the capital of Asunción.
