Lenzing is to begin production of its ‘Ecovero’ branded viscose fibres in China. Production will take place at its Chinese Lenzing Nanjing Fibers (LNF) facility, one of only two locations where the fibre will be made. The production process is claimed to have significantly lower emissions and water impact than conventional viscose. In addition, the fibres will offer full supply chain transparency through use of a special technology which enables their identification in the final product.
