REVOLUTIONARY AND ECO-FRIENDLY
The fiber of the future. The production of TENCEL® is revolutionary. The production process is based on a solvent spinning process and represents the greatest accomplishment in cellulosic fiber technology. The unique closed loop production process makes TENCEL® the fiber of the future: eco-friendly and economical.
TENCEL® - PRODUCTION USING THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY
The closed loop production process of TENCEL® has received awards from the European Union.
CLOSED LOOP PROCESS MANAGEMENT
The revolutionary thing about the production process of TENCEL® is the almost complete recovery of the solvent. Close to 100% of the solvent is recovered and the remaining emissions are broken down in biological water treatment plants. This manufacturing process was presented with the “European Award for the Environment” by the European Union.
Absolute purity. A non-toxic solvent which belongs to the amine oxide family and is also used in toiletries is used in the TENCEL® production process. The harmlessness of the solvent has been proven in dermatological and toxicological tests.
Another important environmental aspect is the consumption of water. To grow cotton 100 times more water is required as in the production of TENCEL® including pulp production. This gentle way of dealing with water will undoubtedly gain significance in the future.
