YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2021-09-06 07:42:17 – Austria

Austrian fiber manufacturer, Lenzing Group, has signed up to a UK agreement aimed at reducing the impact of clothing and home textiles on climate change.

Lenzing has joined the WRAP’s Textiles 2030 voluntary agreement, which aims to speed up the fashion and textile industry's transition to circularity and system transformation in the UK.

WRAP, a UK waste recycling organization, formally launched Textiles 2030 in April. Through practical interventions across the whole textiles chain, the ten-year voluntary clothing and textile waste initiative seek to reduce the environmental effect of UK apparel and household fabrics.

Its objectives include halving carbon emissions by 2030, in line with the Paris Agreement, attaining net-zero by 2050, and decreasing the aggregate water footprint of new items sold by 30%.

Liliana Morfin Huber, Lenzing Group's UK business development manager, said that as a proud Tencel manufacturer in the UK, they encourage cooperation across the supply chain with partners that share our values and passion to promote circularity.

As part of its goal to cut wastewater emissions by 2022, the Austrian company recently announced it will invest GBP20 million (US$27.6 million) in the building of a new wastewater treatment facility at its Grimsby location.

Lenzing now has biological wastewater treatment plants at all of its manufacturing sites, all of which meet the quality level of the finest available technology (BAT). The plant design, which was designed as part of a research project, complies with all British standards and has the approval of the local authorities.

One of Lenzing's main themes under its sustainability strategy, "Naturally Positive," is responsible water usage. The utilization of modern water treatment technology and effective water usage in the industry are the primary issues.
