Lenzing to invest €100 mn in sustainable technologies

The Lenzing Group is expanding its environmental leadership commitment. As a leader in wood-based cellulosic fibres, the Austria-based company is continuing its ambitious roadmap towards sustainability in textile and nonwovens industries, by investing more than €100 million in sustainable manufacturing technologies and production facilities until 2022.

Lenzing’s circular operating models with closed loop production processes set the standard in the industry. In order to further extend the environmental leadership, a major part of this investment will focus on closed loop production technologies for the expansion of the sulfur recovery systems. The second area of investment will be in improving the effluent treatment units. In addition, Lenzing will upgrade its energy usage to more sustainable solutions reducing its greenhouse gas emissions due to the construction of a gas boiler at its site in China. This investment strengthens Lenzing’s sustainability leadership at its Viscose facility in Nanjing.

The investments underline Lenzing’s commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) as guiding principles for its sustainability agenda. One of the most significant SDGs for the company is SDG 12: Responsible production and consumption.

Stefan Doboczky, chief executive officer of the company said, “The textile and the nonwoven industries face fundamental challenges related to sustainability. Lenzing is passionate to take a leadership role in addressing this and making the world a better place. Our holistic approach to sustainability underpins this scope. The new eco-investment programme is a major step forward in our ambitions.”

Lenzing chief commercial officer Robert van de Kerkhof said, “The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are a universal call for a sustainable economy that protects the planet and ensures prosperity and well-being for all people. With our Refibra technology, Lenzing is innovating to support a more circular, bio-based economy, contributing in particular to SDG 12.”
