Für Lenzing ist das Projekt zudem ein wichtiger Schritt zur Stärkung ihrer führenden Position auf dem Spezialfasermarkt und auf dem Weg in eine CO2-freie Zukunft.

Der Bau der Anlage im Industrial Park 304 in Prachinburi – ca. 150 Kilometer nordöstlich von Bangkok gelegen – begann im zweiten Halbjahr 2019 und verlief trotz der Herausforderungen durch die COVID-19-Pandemie weitestgehend nach Plan. Das Recruiting und Onboarding neuer Mitarbeiter:innen war ebenfalls erfolgreich. Die Investitionen (CAPEX) beliefen sich auf rund EUR 400 Mio.

„Die Nachfrage nach unseren holzbasierten, biologisch abbaubaren Spezialfasern der Marken TENCEL™, LENZING™ ECOVERO™ und VEOCEL™ nimmt kontinuierlich zu. Vor allem in Asien sehen wir ein enormes Wachstumspotenzial für unsere Marken, die auf nachhaltiger Innovation beruhen. Mit dem Produktionsstart der Lyocellanlage in Thailand hat Lenzing einen wichtigen Meilenstein in puncto Wachstum erreicht und unterstützt damit unser ehrgeiziges Ziel, die Textil- und Vliesstoffindustrie nachhaltiger zu gestalten“, so Robert van de Kerkhof, Mitglied des Vorstandes.

Die Lenzing Gruppe legte sich 2019 strategisch fest, ihre Treibhausgasemissionen pro Tonne Produkt bis 2030 um 50 Prozent zu reduzieren. Das Ziel für 2050: Klimaneutralität. Aufgrund der vorhandenen Infrastruktur kann der Standort in Thailand mit nachhaltiger biogener Energie versorgt werden und so einen wichtigen Beitrag zum Klimaschutz leisten.

Zusammen mit dem wichtigen Projekt in Brasilien und den erheblichen Investitionen an den bestehenden Standorten in Asien setzt Lenzing derzeit (mit über ca. EUR 1,5 Mrd.) das größte Investitionsprogramm der Unternehmensgeschichte um. Lenzing wird die Umsetzung der strategischen Projekte, die ab 2022 einen wesentlichen Beitrag zu den Einnahmen leisten, weiter vorantreiben.

Sateri has been awarded the Oeko-Tex STeP certification

Sateri’s Lyocell facility in Rizhao, Shandong Province, has been awarded the Sustainable Textile Production (STeP) certification for responsible production, making it the first Lyocell producer in China to be certified to the rigorous standards set by independent Swiss-based certification organisation OEKO-TEX®. Sateri’s Lyocell facility has also obtained the highest ranking of level three in the certification assessment scoring for exemplary implementation of best manufacturing practices.

Together with its earlier achievement of the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certification that confirms its Lyocell fibre is free from any harmful substances and complies with European standards, Sateri’s lyocell products are qualified to carry the MADE IN GREEN by OEKO-TEX® product label. This label not only attests to Sateri’s Lyocell fibre as safe and manufactured in environmentally-friendly, socially responsible and safe facility, but also the Group’s commitment to higher levels of transparency and accountability through the product traceability feature of the label.

The STeP by OEKO-TEX® certification comprises three levels describing the extent to which a company has achieved sustainable production and working conditions of factories in the textile industry. The areas of assessment include chemicals management, environmental performance, environmental management, social responsibility, quality management, as well as occupational health and safety.

Sateri’s Lyocell fiber factory in Rizhao commenced operation in May 2020, with an annual output of 20,000 tonnes of Lyocell fiber. The same site houses a 5,000 tonne Lyocell pilot production line dedicated for the development of Lyocell application technology. In March 2021, the Group announced plans to expand its Lyocell annual production capacity in China up to 500,000 tonnes by 2025.

A natural and biodegradable fibre, Sateri’s Lyocell is made from wood pulp sourced from certified and sustainable plantations. It is manufactured using closed-loop technology, requiring minimal chemical input during the production process, and utilising an organic solvent that can be almost fully (99.7%) recovered and recycled.

Sateri’s Lyocell is used to produce high quality textiles and personal hygiene materials. Using a unique high technology manufacturing process, it has outstanding dry and wet strength, high uniformity and consistency, and superior quality. It blends well with various textile fibres to create different fabric styles and characteristics for wide downstream applications.

Sateri to expand Lyocell Production in China

Sateri, one of the world's largest producers of viscose fibre, is planning to expand its Lyocell production in China, with total planned annual capacity of up to 500,000 tonnes by 2025.

The first phase of this expansion kicked off recently with ground breaking works for a new 100,000 tonne facility in Changzhou, Jiangsu province. Another 100,000 tonne facility will be built in Nantong, Jiangsu province later this year. The Changzhou Lyocell facility is expected to commence production in the third quarter of 2022 and will create more than 800 jobs.

Sateri Enters China’s Lyocell Fibre Market

  • New 20,000 ton Lyocell line commences production in Shandong

Sateri has successfully commenced production of Lyocell fibre in Rizhao, Shandong, China. In collaboration with Asia Symbol, China’s leading producer of pulp and packaging board, the newly installed 20,000 ton per annum production line will broaden Sateri’s portfolio of high quality fibre products, and bolster Lyocell supply to the textile and non-woven markets.

Industry associations such as the China National Textile and Apparel Council (CNTAC) welcome the news. Duan Xiaoping, Deputy President of CNTAC and President of the China Chemical Fibers Association (CCFA), said, “Lyocell is not only a higher value product but also an eco-friendly fibre that is bio-based and minimises chemical use and emissions. Sateri’s investment in Lyocell is very much aligned with the aim for technical and product upgrading for China’s textile industry.”

Textiles made from Lyocell possess high tenacity and bright lustre, and share similar qualities with textiles made from viscose – soft and silky with good drape, breathability, and absorption.

Sateri is part of the RGE group of companies which has committed to investing USD200 million to advance next-generation textile fibre innovation and technology. In March this year, Sateri achieved a breakthrough in commercial production of viscose using recycled textile waste.
