During 2022, the Altri Group has committed itself to analysing the Gama project, which implies the construction of an industrial unit for the production of soluble pulp and sustainable textile fibres from scratch, in Galicia. Altri Group has been actively working in the environmental impact study, engineering project, economic feasibility study, financing structure and access to European Union funds, with the aim of announcing a final investment decision during 2023.
“The core business of Altri revolves around Fibre. Cellulosic fibre, which begins in forest management, is transformed at our industries using the best sustainable practices, stimulating the circular economy through its incorporation into a multitude of different products. But also the fibre we are made of, which represents our energy, the ability to make decisions and take firm positions. To this we add value: that which we generate through our products, and that which we cultivate daily among the more than 800 employees that make up our Altri Group”, says José Soares de Pina, Altri’s CEO.
