Lenzing’s quality and innovative strength set global standards for wood-based cellulose fibers. With 80 years of experience, the Lenzing Group is the only company in the world which produces significant volumes of all three wood-based cellulose fiber generations. Its products are marketed under the following brands: TENCELTM for textile applications, VEOCELTM for nonwoven and LENZINGTM for special fiber applications in other areas and other products.
In recent years we have observed how the needs of industry have changed – towards enhanced transparency along the value chain and a growing awareness for sustainability. In particular, avoiding the use of plastics which end up in our waters in a variety of ways, pose a major challenge and will be also demanded both by legislators as well as consumers in the future. We can confront these trends on the basis of our biodegradable LENZINGTM fibers. The New Business Areas division identified several fields of interest, among others, these are industrial applications in the area of energy storage systems, filtration applications, packaging, and shoes.
