Zwtl.: Biodegradable nonwovens for a clean environment
The pollution of the environment by plastics is one of the most urgent problems
of our time. Every day, millions of hygiene products and wipes around the globe
end up in garbage and sewage. Most of them consist of up to 80 percent polyester
or other fossil, non-biodegradable materials and therefore pollute the
With the LENZING(TM) Web Technology, Lenzing has developed a patented technology
to counter this problem: Sustainable and eco-friendly nonwovens are produced
from the renewable raw material wood. These are not only plastic-free, they also
score points for their particularly high environmental friendliness. "Thanks to
a unique self-bonding mechanism, in which the filaments bond with each other
during the spinning process, binders, which are found in many nonwovens, are no
longer needed. As a result, the nonwovens produced with LENZING(TM) Web
Technology are 100 percent biodegradable and do not pollute either humans or the
environment", says Gert Kroner, Vice President Global Research & Development of
the Lenzing Group.
The Austrian State Prize for Innovation is awarded annually by the Federal
Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs to the most innovative Austrian
company. In 2020, the competition took place for the 40th time.
