Lenzing shows new fiber concept for nonwovens at Index

Apr '14
Just in time for the fair Index, April 8.-11. 2014, Geneva, Lenzing is presenting a new fiber concept for the nonwovens industry.
 
European Innovation 
Eurocel is a European product through and through. The cellulose fibers used are made in Austria in an environmentally responsible process. Eurocel is based on the idea of offering a high quality European product to consumers. 
 
Sandler, a German nonwovens manufacturer partner, adopted the idea of Eurocel and developed a new product for their customers. “We are well known for quickly putting our ideas into practice and we immediately recognized the potential of Eurocel for the European market,” Dr. Ulrich Hornfeck, member of the Sandler management board, explains. 
 
Due to the sustainable and high quality production of fiber material at Lenzing and Sandler’s innovative strength, a wipe has now been created which is extremely skin-friendly. The advantages of Eurocel go very well with the concept of the German nonwoven manufacturer, Sandler, who have their company headquarters at the center of Europe. “Production in Europe translates into shorter delivery distances which means fewer carbon dioxide emissions during transportation and thus a lower carbon footprint,” Hornfeck comments. 
 
Apart from the logistical advantages, Hornfeck also names the improved product properties, such as the improved volume, the higher tear resistance and reduced elongation.
 
Future Europe 
“The goal is to persuade other nonwoven manufacturers of this European idea and offer a convenience care product which complies with today’s consumer demands: sustainable, natural, and high quality,” Elisabeth Stanger, head of the Hygiene Business Segment, explains. 
 
Eurocel has been awarded with the raw material certification label PEFC, Oeko-Tex Standard 100, ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, European Ecolabel, Compostable (DIN CERTCO), Vinçotte OK compost HOME, Vinçotte OK compost, Vinçotte OK bio-degradable SOIL, Medically tested / ITV Denkendorf, US BPI compostable certificate and Food contact compliance Certification.
 
Sandler AG 
Sandler AG is a family-run company which is 135 years old. It has sales of € 274 million. The company has an output of 99,800 tons of nonwovens for applications in hygiene, wipes, the automobile sector, filtration, engineering and home textiles. In the year 2013, Sandler AG employed a staff of 600.
