The Lenzing Group, suppliers of high-quality, botanic cellulose fibre, ranging from dissolving pulp to standard and specialty cellulose fibres to the nonwovens industry, has announced that Lenzing Viscose and Lenzing Modal fibres, including all their product families, were awarded the Biobased Product Label by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA).

The prestigious certification is further proof that all standard types of fibres produced by Lenzing are fully derived from the natural and renewable raw material wood. The company’s Lyocell fiber Tencel has already been certified as 100 per cent bio-based content since 2011. Lenzing FR has now also been certified as 99 per cent bio-based. The residual amount is for material used to make the fibre fire-resistant.

Lenzing is in tune with the growing trend towards ecology and sustainability. Global customers in the textile and nonwovens industry are increasingly turning to raw materials which do not unnecessarily harm the environment when they are produced or disposed of.

The certification of bio-based products is part of the BioPreferred program implemented by the USDA. It is designed to motivate government institutions and companies to purchase bio-based products or those which largely consist of biological materials.

Lenzing CEO Stefan Doboczky said, “I am glad that our pioneering work for sustainability is being recognised by reviewers worldwide. Eco-responsibility represents a key component of our group strategy and we put a major emphasis on it. The notable Biobased Product Label will help inform consumers about the high ecological standards of our products and our corporate values.” (GK)
