Kelheim Fibres, world’s leading manufacturer of viscose speciality fibres, has come up with a sustainable solution of wet wipes made from viscose specialty short cut fibre Viloft and cellulose. Both raw materials are plant-based and therefore completely bio-degradable. This will help in reducing pollution by substituting the conventional wet wipes.

With moist toilet tissue in particular, disposal via the toilet is clearly the obvious solution – but in contrast to conventional wipes containing polyester, wipes made of Viloft short cut fibres can be flushed without concern. Here, there is neither a reason to fear an entry of plastic particles into the oceans nor the blockage of private or municipal sewage systems. Wipes made of Viloft short cut fibres will disintegrate in the sewage systems to small particles that do not harm the infrastructure.

At the 56th International Man-made Fibers Congress that will be held from September 13-15 at Dornbirn, Austria, business manager Horst Worner will speak about Kelheim’s contribution in the reduction of marine litter. Dr Nina Köhne and Dr Roland Scholz of Kelheim Fibres will present further innovations of the Bavarian fibre specialist.

At the Congress, Scholz will speak about carbon fibres that also can be manufactured sustainably, by using viscose fibres as precursors. Köhne will present the result of a joint research project with Resorba. Based on the bio-polymers cellulose and collagen, the scientists created a multifunctional wound dressing, that is significantly superior to reference products as a result of its pH-indication and it's gel-forming and wound healing properties.
