The Lenzing Group, a leading provider of sustainably produced specialty fibres for the global textile and nonwovens industries, reports that it is continuing to make great strides toward achieving carbon neutrality across the group.

The successful completion and commissioning of an air purification and sulphur recovery plant at the Lenzing facility marks another milestone in the group’s ambitious strategy. Lenzing has invested around EUR 40 million in this project since construction began in 2019.

As a result of this investment, Lenzing has made further progress towards implementing its climate targets

Using state-of-the-art technology, the plant will enable carbon emissions to be reduced by 15,000 metric tons at the Lenzing facility. This will also make the group more self-sufficient in securing vital raw materials for processing, which will bolster the site’s competitive standing in terms of sustainability.

“As a result of this investment, Lenzing has made further progress towards implementing its climate targets, while achieving much greater autonomy with regard to one of its core raw materials”, commented Christian Skilich, Member of the Managing Board at Lenzing Group.

In 2019, Lenzing set the strategic target of halving its group-wide greenhouse gas emissions per ton of product by 2030. Its goal for 2050 is to achieve climate neutrality.
