High demand for a high-performance fluting grade, UltraFlute, produced at Tugela Mill, increased the internal requirements for high-quality neutral sulphite semi-chemical (NSCC) pulp from the semi-chemical cooking process.
Project Vulindlela is our multi-billion-rand expansion project to boost Saiccor Mill’s dissolving pulp (DP) capacity by 110,000 tons per annum. The project has significant benefits for people, the planet and prosperity in South Africa.
Endemic to the forests of Southern Africa (Mozambique, South Africa, Swaziland and Zimbabwe), the Pepper-bark tree (Warburgia salutaris) is considered Endangered at the global level according to the IUCN Red List.
Nature reserves are becoming more and more important in an increasingly urbanised world. Only by spending time in protected places do we have a sense of how rich in birds, flowers and insects our countryside could be.
The South African energy sector is heavily dependent on coal and 150 years of intensive coal mining have produced about a billion tons of discarded thermal-grade coal fines. These can potentially cause environmental and health problems.
