TENCELTM branded Lyocell fibers bring circular economy into home textiles

Many more customers want to make sustainable purchase choices. TENCELTM Lyocell fibers with REFIBRATM technology offer a good solution to that. REFIBRATM technology is a true sustainability choice. Products made out of TENCELTM Lyocell fibers with REFIBRATM technology unite two innovations: the eco-friendly, closed loop production process of TENCELTM Lyocell fibers and the upcycling of a substantial proportion of cotton scraps. Combining wood pulp with pulp made from left over cotton scraps from cutting operations, new virgin TENCELTM Lyocell fibers are produced to make yarns and fabrics for Home textiles. These innovative fibers mark an important step in Lenzing’s journey towards circular economy.

Full transparency for TENCELTM with REFIBRATM technology

Lenzing has developed a new identification system to assure customers that the purchased products with TENCELTM produced with REFIBRATM technology are really made out of the sustainable TENCELTM Lyocell fiber. Even after going through a long supply chain, TENCELTM Lyocell fibers can still be identified in the final product. This supports transparency in the overall processing chain.
