Lenzing begins commercial production at new Tencel plant

Aug '14
Austria based, Lenzing has begun commercial production at its Austrian site, the world’s largest Tencel fibre plant, which has an annual production capacity of 67,000 tons.

The plant which has been set up at an investment of EUR 150 million has been started fully on schedule within the construction time of 24 months.

The new plant design incorporates lessons learned from the experience of three existing Lenzing Group Tencel production plants located in Austria, USA and United Kingdom. As a result, the new Tencel plant incorporates the latest generation of technology.

With the commissioning of this new plant, Lenzing’s Tencel production capacity will rise from 155,000 tons/annum to about 220,000 tons/annum. The plant is currently in the midst of a stable ramp-up phase.

Lenzing has already begun marketing Tencel fibre from the new plant, which has helped create 140 new employment opportunities.

Commenting on the start-up of the new plant, Peter Untersperger CEO at Lenzing said, “We are more than satisfied with the progress of the start-up curve. Based on the production process in the past days and weeks, we have reasonable grounds to believe that this latest generation of Tencel technology will completely fulfill our expectations”.

Tencel is the latest generation of man-made cellulose fibers, and is manufactured in a particularly environmentally-compatible production process. Typical applications of Tencel include sportswear, soft denim applications, home textiles as well as baby wipes and cosmetic wipes.
