Global consumption of viscose fibre on the rise

07
Apr '08
Volatile organic compounds and chemical water wastes have earned the textile industry a name for being a notorious pollutant.

However, with the advent of the eco-friendly viscose fiber, entrepreneurs have been inspired to encourage a greener approach towards the textile industry.

Viscose, a natural fiber extracted from wood pulp and notable for being bio-degradable having the same absorbent and easy-to-weave characteristics as cotton, is used extensively for clothing.

Even the global output for viscose fiber has increased from 1.43 million tons in 2006 to 1.54 million tons in 2007.

This increased demand is met by foreign owned, Sateri International Group in China which is a major integrated manufacturer of specialty pulp and viscose fibres.

The company, owned by Singapore based Raja Garuda Mas International, is one of the largest viscose and dissolving pulp producers in the world with a production capacity of 285,000 tons.

Jiujiang in Jiangxi Province of China houses a viscose fibre mill of Sateri. It the first foreign owned viscose fiber mill in China supplying some 70,000 tons annually. The company expanded its production capacity in August 2007 with an investment of 980 million yuan.

The expansion is anticipated to get completed by October this year and thereafter will increase its annual production capacity to 130, 000 tons. This will make Sateri International the fourth largest producer of viscose fibre in China.
