September 1st, 2008 / By: / Graphics

Austrian-based Lenzing Group, maker of cellulose staple fibers, and Weyerhaeuser, Federal Way, Wash., a forest products company, will work together on the development of novel lyocell-based nonwoven fabrics. The objective of the collaboration is to develop a technology for the large-scale industrial production of an innovative and sustainable cellulose-based material for industrial and personal care applications. The technology will provide an alternative to petroleum-based materials in nonwoven products with raw materials based on renewable wood fiber.
