Heiligenkreuz, Austria - Cellulose fiber manufacturer The Lenzing Group has completed the three-year expansion of its Tencel production facility here, increasing capacity from 25,000 to 60,000 tons.
The Tencel fibers produced in Heiligenkreuz are third generation -
manufactured from pulp that is derived from the sustainable raw material wood. In the production process, cellulose is physically converted into a solution by means of a special chemical. Subsequently the fibers are spun, dried and pressed into bales for shipment.
