The need for clothing will have doubled by the year 2025. This amount of clothing
signals a major burden for our environment. 80% of the clothing we throw away ends up in landfills. An estimated 50 million tons of clothing are thrown away every year.
Refibra™, the new TENCEL® innovation, is the solution and enables circular economy for the textile industry.
The TENCEL® fiber is demonstrating its worth in the hotel business in bed linens. TENCEL® fiber has no problem meeting the highest standards in bed linens. Years of product developments with international partners in industrial linens and bed linens manufacturers have led to success. The results were presented at Heimtextil 2017 in Frankfurt for the first time.

Lenzing is launching a new TENCEL® fiber made from cotton waste fabrics to drive ‘circular economy’ solutions in the textile industry. The new generation of lyocell fibers will be the most ecological wood-based fiber on the planet – combining cotton waste recycling with Lenzing’s pioneering closed-loop TENCEL® production on a commercial scale.
Lenzing is pushing new frontiers in ecological innovation and circular economy.
At IDEA ’16 in Boston USA, the most important nonwovens trade show, Lenzing is focusing on the lyocell fiber, TENCEL®, which is being used increasingly in skin care products. The greater use of special fibers in nonwovens mirrors Lenzing's strategy.
