Lenzing carves a new sustainability chapter with Veocel in nonwovens 002The Lenzing Group introduces Veocel, the company’s new nonwoven specialty brand. Positioned as a premium brand of nonwoven fibres for daily care rituals, Veocel provides the nonwoven industry with fibers that are certified clean and safe, biodegradable, from botanic origin and produced in an environmentally responsible production process. Offerings under the Veocel brand cover a broad range of applications for everyday use, from baby care, beauty and body care to intimate care and surface cleaning. Such applications are categorised under branded offers Veocel Beauty, Veocel Body, Veocel Intimate and Veocel Surface.

Veocel is a key milestone in Lenzing’s new brand strategy to transform from a business-to-business (B2B) fibre producer to a business-to-business-to-consumer (B2B2C) brand. Coupled with ongoing co-branding, joint marketing and brand education initiatives conducted with customers and brands globally, Veocel will enable Lenzing to shift its focus beyond fibre types to product application and build a relatable and emotional connection with consumers.

Robert van de Kerkhof, Chief Commercial Officer, Lenzing Group explains, “Guided by our sCore Ten strategy, the launch of the Veocel brand willLenzing carves a new sustainability chapter with Veocel in nonwovens 001 accelerate our migration into a specialty fibre business with a strong focus on innovation, quality and sustainability. Through ongoing proactive communication, the Veocel brand will also promote a holistic understanding about the benefits of botanic fibres in nonwoven products across the industry value chain and among consumers. This will not only help to maximise the marketing efforts of our customers and partners, but also drive dialogue about sustainability across the nonwoven industry. Through the Veocel brand, we hope to address the growing demand for transparency and sustainability across the value chain and provide consumers with greener product options.”

The USPs

The latest addition to the Veocel Surface brand – the Veocel Lyocell Fiber with ‘Quat’ Release technology, is a premium and specialty wood-based cellulose fibre used in hard surface cleaning and disinfectant wet wipes. Veocel Lyocell fibres with Lenzing’s Quat Release technology allow quaternary ammonium compounds, also known as ‘Quat’, to be released from wet wipes onto the surface for effective cleaning and disinfecting in household and industrial environments.

While the nonwoven industry has acknowledged the benefits of Lenzing’s cellulosic fibres, such as their sustainable nature, botanic origin and ability to improve cleaning experience, the majority of single-use cleaning and disinfectant wet wipes mainly consists of synthetic fibers such as polyester and polypropylene. This binding interaction substantially decreases the release of ‘Quat’ and can negatively impact the efficacy of the disinfectant product. However, with Lenzing’s ‘Quat’ Release technology, the binding of ‘Quat’ to the surface of Veocel Lyocell Fibres is significantly reduced, resulting in improved effectiveness of surface cleaning and the disinfection process. Wet wipes containing Veocel Lyocell Fibre with ‘Quat’ Release technology demonstrate significantly improved release of ‘Quat’ from the wet wipe to the surface, resulting in improved product stability and performance. In addition, Veocel Lyocell fibres also promote good absorbency, homogenous distribution of liquid in wet wipes and good hand feel.

“Following the introduction of Veocel, joint promotional programmes with retail brand partners will be rolled out to equip consumers with the knowledge they need to identify nonwoven products that combine advanced performance, comfort and sustainability. “With Veocel, we are building a consumer-focussed ingredient brand that proactively communicates with consumers through a B2Me approach, which is unique to the nonwoven industry. Given nonwoven products are in close contact with skin or other sensitive areas of the body, ongoing consumer outreach plays a critical role in building trust among consumers. Matched with a tagline ‘purely for you’, we wish to convey a Veocel brand promise that highlights our dedication to provide certified clean and safe products and pure care to consumers and the environment,” said Harold Weghorst, director – global brand management, Lenzing Group.
