SNIACE produces totally Chlorine Free viscose fiber & pulp

SNIACE S.A. is one of the main players at European markets of Viscose fiber and Dissolving Pulp. The company has been establishing a strong commitment with environmental issues during many years. One of the most important investments which has been done to honour its commitment is the last technology Whitening Process.

It was inaugurated in 2007 in SNIACE's production plant in Torrelavega (North of Spain). As a result of that, SNIACE produces exclusively Totally Chlorine Free Viscose Fiber and pulp.

Every year CELLTECH (SNIACE GROUP brand for production of Dissolving Pulp) produces more than 60.000 tonnes of Cellulose Totally Chlorine Free which is delivered all over the world. Part of the Totally Chlorine Free Pulp is incorporated into VISCOCEL's (Brand for the Viscose production) plant where 26.000 tonnes of Viscose Staple Fibre are produced every year. That's how VISCOCEL is able to supply worldwide Totally Chlorine Free Viscose fibers. Additionally, thanks to the high investment in the whitening plant, SNIACE can save every year 90% of the water used during the production.

On the other side, the whitening process without Chlorine is allowing VISCOCEL to deeply enter into new markets as important as medical and hygienic ones. VISCOCEL has created a strong added value to its fibre, compared to the fibre and cellulose from most of the worldwide competitors. In fact, it is really relevant to highlight that less than 15% of the viscose produced in the world is Totally Chlorine free. SNIACE's group belongs to this minority group, and it is the only company in its sector which observes an environmental friendly and Totally Chlorine Free process for its whole production.
