Sniace restarts production at viscose fibre factory
Sniace, a producer of cellulose and viscose fibre for textile applications, from raw materials of renewable origin, has restarted production lines at its factory in Torrelavega, an industrial hub in the autonomous community of Cantabria in northern Spain. This will enable Sniace group to increase the quality and range of its viscose fibre products.
The factory has been started after the group received an investment of approximately €11 million through two capital increases. With the commencement of production on modern lines, Sniace plans to access markets with higher added value and, therefore, higher margins, for hygienic applications, the company said on its website.
Since the start of the pulp mill in October 2016, and after a period of 3 years without industrial activity, Sniace has produced and marketed 34,000 tons of dissolving cellulose, 73,000 tons of lignins and 330 GWh of electricity. 
The start-up of the viscose fibre factory will allow Sniace to reach 100 per cent of its industrial capacity in its different business segments: cellulose, viscous fibre, energy and lignins, maximising, therefore, the Group’s operational and financial performance.
After the start of the viscose fibre factory, the total number of people employed by Sniace has increased to over 350. (RKS)
