Enabled by Eco Care technology, Veocel Specialty Viscose fibers originate from sustainably managed wood sources and are ideal for many nonwovens applications in the baby, body and home segments, especially for various types of dry and wet wipes, sanitary pads for adult and feminine uses, and diapers. Veocel Specialty Viscose fibers build the common ground for innovative and sustainable solutions in the nonwoven industry and represent a versatile blending partner for other cellulosic fibers such as lyocell.
“We have recently unveiled the new certification criteria for VEOCEL™, helping to establish the brand as a label of trust along the entire value chain. The Veocel brand logo can now be featured on products which use blends of raw materials that are entirely cellulosic and biodegradable. The introduction of the Eco Care technology is another key breakthrough for the Veocel brand, as it now enables Veocel branded fibers to be used in a wider range of nonwoven products, creating a greater sustainability impact in the industry. Moving forward, Veocel™ Specialty Viscose fibers with Eco Care technology will serve as an affordable sustainable alternative for nonwoven applications by making more sustainable viscose available,” said Jürgen Eizinger, Vice President of Global Business Management Nonwovens, Lenzing AG.
