Company Information

USDA Biobased certification extended to Lenzing Viscose® and Lenzing Modal®

Lenzing - Lenzing Viscose® and Lenzing Modal® fibers including all their product
families were awarded the Biobased Product Label granted by the U.S. Department
of Agriculture (USDA). The prestigious certification is further proof that all
standard types of fibers produced by Lenzing are fully derived from the natural
and renewable raw material wood. The company's Lyocell fiber TENCEL® has already
been certified as 100 percent biobased content since 2011. Lenzing FR® has now
also been certified as 99 percent biobased. The residual amount is for material
used to make the fiber fire-resistant.

"I am glad that our pioneering work for sustainability is being recognized by
reviewers worldwide. Eco-responsibility represents a key component of our group
strategy and we put a major emphasis on it", explains Lenzing CEO Stefan
Doboczky. "The notable Biobased Product Label will help inform consumers about
the high ecological standards of our products and our corporate values", he
added.

Natural cycle  
Even more, Lenzing fibers are not only derived 100 percent from nature, but they
are also returned to nature at the end of their life cycle. Standard Lenzing
fibers are demonstrably 100 percent biodegradable and even compostable. Lenzing
proves this with a series of certificates
(http://www.lenzing.com/en/responsibility/ecological-responsibility/eco-labelsawards.html). 

Accordingly, Lenzing is in tune with the growing trend towards ecology and
sustainability. Global customers in the textile and nonwovens industry are
increasingly turning to raw materials which do not unnecessarily harm the
environment when they are produced or disposed of.  

BioPreferred program
The certification of biobased products is part of the BioPreferred program
implemented by the USDA. It is designed to motivate government institutions and
companies to purchase biobased products or those which largely consist of
biological materials.
