Lenzing successfully completing the conversion and upgrade of its Indonesian site

Date:

  • Transformation to a state-of-the-art production site in Indonesia: Significant reduction of emissions expected
  • Investment turns location into a supplier of specialty viscose fibers for which certification according to the standard of the internationally recognized EU Ecolabel is being sought

Purwakarta – The Lenzing Group, a world-leading provider of specialty fibers for the textile and nonwoven industries, has made significant technical improvements to its Purwakarta site (PT. South Pacific Viscose). Lenzing has invested more than EUR 100 million since 2021 to convert existing production capacity to specialty viscose. With the imminent completion of the investment, Lenzing is in a better position to serve the strongly growing demand for specialty fibers.

Lenzing is striving for certification according to the standard of the internationally recognized EU Ecolabel1. The product portfolio would thus include LENZINGTM ECOVEROTM branded fibers for textiles and VEOCELTM branded fibers for nonwoven applications. In the course of these substantial investments, Lenzing has set the goal of significantly reducing emissions at the site. Moreover, the site started to obtain renewable grid electricity and promotes a changeover to biomass in line with Lenzing’s goals of reducing carbon emissions per ton of product by 50 percent by 2030 and achieving carbon-neutral production by 2050.

“Demand for specialty fibers with low environmental impacts continues to grow structurally. We see enormous growth potential in Asia in particular. Through our investments in Indonesia and also at other Lenzing sites worldwide, we are in a better position to serve this growing demand. At the same time, we continue working tirelessly to make the industries in which we operate even more sustainable and to drive the transformation of the textile business model from linear to circular,” says Stephan Sielaff, Chief Executive Officer of the Lenzing Group.

Boosting growth in specialty fibers
Anthropogenic climate change is one of the most pressing problems of our time, with both the global textile and the nonwoven industry being among the major contributors. LENZINGTM ECOVEROTM viscose fibers (for textiles) and VEOCELTM specialty viscose (for nonwovens) demonstrably cause significantly less greenhouse gas emissions and water pollution than generic viscose.

www.textilesresources.com is not just a blog, but it is my passion towards textile/apparel/fashion industry. After having studied at NIFT (National Institute of Fashion Technology) at Gandhinagar campus, and associated with NDBI (National Design Business Incubation) at NID (National Institute of Design) Ahmedabad campus, I started my long journey into this field. Since 2006, I had worked for various corporates either into B2B, B2C, SaaS or AI base products/concept/services related to mostly textiles/apparel/fashion industry, and having main responsibilities are sales/revenue generator and bd. During July2023, a thought came in my mind to launch a knowledge-based website, you can also call it a blogging site, wherein users can read latest news and happenings and articles about global textiles/apparel/fashion and stay abreast. At the moment, this site is having mainly two features: News and Articles, going forward I shall also add Interviews (text/audio/video) Trade Fair calendar (this calendar is being updated as per the organizers schedule, however I request to crosscheck with organizer before any decision) , therefore, I have launched this venture in July2023, and thanks to the visitors, the site is growing every day. We have recently launched a new feature as Business Directory wherein the suppliers/manufacturers can create their profile and upload products for better exposure. You can also follow TextilesResources.com on Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/company/textilesresources/
