Leading global producer of wood-based specialty fibers Lenzing presented its new carbon- neutral Lenzing™ FR fiber offering for the protective wear segment at Techtextil Frankfurt. Lenzing collaborated with long-term partner Textil Santanderina, a Spanish textile company for the venture. The textile company also collaborated with European fabric manufacturer Klopman to showcase the applications of its carbon-zero Tencel ™ branded fibers launched in 2020.
These two partnerships mark an important milestone in Lenzing’s tenure as the company engages itself in providing eco-friendly alternatives for manufacturers in various segments through collaborating with leading industry partners. The carbon-neutral Lenzing™ FR fibers are made using a sustainable cellulosic solution for the protective wear segments. In addition to the benefit of reduced carbon footprint, these fibers also offer supply chain transparency as part of Lenzing’s fiber identification technology. This technology enables full traceability of the fiber and protects products from counterfeiting.
