Sustainable activities of Austria-based Andritz Nonwoven include offering very compact lines with high production capacities to reduce carbon footprint; lighter grammage, another key driver; and using smaller amounts of raw materials that saves energy in the drying system, according to Andreas Lukas, senior vice president and division manager of the company.

All new technical developments are designed to save energy, water, fibres and other resources, he told Fibre2Fashion in an interview.

Two years ago, the company launched Nexecodry, a combination of dewatering system and Nexdry through-air dryer. It saves energy and also makes Andritz spunlace producers more competitive.

For water filtration and bacteria treatment in wipes, Andritz has developed an ozone system using less biocide. In addition, the company’s Wetlace technology is recognised as producing proper flushable products for sustainable wipes, he added. (DS)
