In order to drive circular economy solutions in the textile industry, Austrian specialty fibres producer Lenzing is launching a new Tencel fibre made from cotton waste fabrics.

The company said it is the first manufacturer worldwide to offer such cellulose fibres incorporating recycled materials on a commercial scale.

“The new generation of lyocell fibres will be the most ecological wood-based fibre on the planet combining cotton waste recycling with Lenzing's closed-loop Tencel production on a commercial scale,” it added.

“For Lenzing, developing circular business models in the fashion industry ensures the decoupling of business growth from pressure on ecological resource consumption,” Robert Kerkhof, CCO of Lenzing said.

“It reduces the need to extract additional virgin resources from nature, and reduces the net impact on ecological resources,” he too added.

According to Lenzing, the new fibre has already been awarded the EU award for the most eco-friendly production process based on 99.7 per cent closed loop circulation in the production and use of bio-energy.

“The latest next-generation Tencel fibre combines the best of two worlds; recycling cotton waste fabrics and using the most sustainable Tencel technology, to create one of the most ecological wood-based fibres,” Lenzing stated.

The new Tencel fibre will not be sold directly to yarn or fabric manufacturers and will be exclusively offered to leading retailers and brands to produce garments in the most sustainable way by engaging the right value chain partners.

Lenzing has also incorporated a new type of identification procedure to guarantee transparency for the new fibre, which assures retailers that the fibres in the garment are the most eco-friendly wood-based fibres. (AR)
