Lenzing aims for sustainability benchmark with new fibres

LENZING - This autumn, Austrian speciality fibre maker Lenzing will launch a new brand of viscose fibres which it claims will set a "new industry-wide benchmark in the sustainability of viscose fibres."

In addition, the fibres will offer full supply chain transparency through use of a special technology which enables their identification in the final product.
