LENZING/VAXJO – In a bid to divert more textiles from landfill, cellulosic fibre specialist Lenzing and wood pulp supplier Södra have today signed a joint agreement to scale-up the production of pulp from post-consumer textile waste to make Tencel Refibra fibres.

The goal is to process 25,000 tons of textile waste per year by 2025, which equates to 50,000 tons of pulp containing 50 per cent wood and 50 per cent post-consumer waste, under the deal which will see the two companies combine their expertise in a bid to speed up the journey towards circularity.

“We started our journeys individually, working together we really believe that we can accelerate the commercialisation of this technology and achieve more than what we could do as individual companies,” Robert van de Kerkhof, CCO of Lenzing, told Ecotextile News prior to the announcement.
