Lenzing introduces ECOVERO Fibers in China
The Lenzing Group is introducing the eco-responsible process for the production of LENZINGTM ECOVEROTM branded viscose fibers, which were first launched by Lenzing in autumn 2017 at its Chinese location Lenzing Nanjing Fibers (LNF). As of now, the Lenzing Group produces LENZINGTM ECOVEROTM fibers at its sites in Lenzing (Austria) and China.
LENZING™ ECOVERO™ viscose fibers are derived from sustainable wood and pulp, coming from certified and controlled sources (FSC® or PEFCTM certified) following the stringent guidelines of the Lenzing Wood and Pulp Policy. These fibers have been certified with the EU Ecolabel, a label of environmental excellence and they can be robustly identified in the final product.
Lenzing follows strict environmental standards during viscose production. Both the Lenzing site and the production facility in Nanjing comply with the stringent guidelines of the EU Ecolabel. The label of environmental excellence is only awarded to products and services which have a significantly lower environmental impact throughout their lifecycle: from raw material extraction, to production, distribution and disposal.
