PulP and Paper Mill
Database for Latin America
The production of pulp and paper is responsible for approximately 0.6% of global greenhouse gas emissions*. This sector has significant environmental impacts beyond carbon including chemical pollution and impacts on timber and forestry resources.
The Spatial Finance Initiative Pulp and Paper Mill Database for Latin America provides information on pulp and paper mill facilities in Latin America. The database contains 333 facilities with exact geolocation and provides information about ownership, capacity and production type where available.
This information was manually collected, validated and enriched by combining information from various corporate and country specific web and map sources. This is a work in progress and is a first step in developing a global, open asset-level database for the pulp and paper sector.
