Lenzing was one of the pioneers in the industry to advocate environmentally friendly dissolving wood pulp bleaching. Pulp produced at the Lenzing site has been bleached with totally chlorine-free chemicals for decades. The site at Paskov, Czech Republic, has also eliminated chlorine containing chemicals from bleaching by shifting its pulp bleaching from elemental chlorine-free (ECF - with chlorine-containing bleaches, no chlorine gas) to totally chlorine-free (TCF). Other pulp companies work mainly with elemental chlorine-free bleaching (ECF).
