Lenzing offers new fiber concept for nonwovens

March 19, 2014

Eurocel offers many advantages to European nonwovens makers.

Lenzing is launching a new fiber concept for the nonwovens industry. Eurocel features cellulose fibers made in Austria through an environmentally responsible process. It is based on the idea of offering a high quality European product to consumers.

Sandler, a German nonwovens manufacturer partner, adopted the idea of Eurocel and developed a new product for their customers. “We are well known for quickly putting our ideas into practice and we immediately recognized the potential of Eurocel for the European market,” Ulrich Hornfeck, member of the Sandler management board, explains.
 
Due to the sustainable and high quality production of fiber material at Lenzing and Sandler’s innovative strength, a wipe has now been created which is extremely skin-friendly. The advantages of Eurocel   go very well with the concept of the German nonwoven manufacturer.
 
“Production in Europe translates into shorter delivery distances which means fewer carbon dioxide emissions during transportation and thus a lower carbon footprint,” Hornfeck comments. Apart from the logistical advantages, Hornfeck also names the improved product properties, such as the improved volume, the higher tear resistance and reduced elongation.

“The goal is to persuade other nonwoven manufacturers of this European idea and offer a convenience care product which complies with today’s consumer demands: sustainable, natural, and high quality,” Elisabeth Stanger, head of the Hygiene Business Segment at Lenzing, explains.

Eurocel can be awarded with the raw material certification label PEFC, Oeko-Tex Standard 100, ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, European Ecolabel, Compostable (DIN CERTCO), Vinçotte OK compost HOME, Vinçotte OK compost, Vinçotte OK bio-degradable SOIL, Medically tested / ITV Denkendorf, US BPI compostable certificate and Food contact compliance Certification.
