Austrian fiber maker Lenzing producer of Tencel, the closed-loop cellulosic fiber made from eucalyptus-tree pulp, has introduced a new eco-friendly fiber made from cotton scraps and wood, Refibra officially launched at the recent PremiÃ¨re Vision textile trade show in Paris.
Refibra is Lenzingâ€™s latest effort to develop new textile solutions with the goal of creating a circular economy by recycling production waste.
Lenzing is dubbing Refibra â€œreborn Tencel.â€ Refibra is produced using the Tencel closed-loop production process, in which close to 100 percent of the solvent used in the production process is recovered and any emissions are broken down in biological water-treatment plants.
Lenzing has also developed a new identification system that allows companies to identify the Refibra content in the finished textile.
Robert van de Kerkhof, Lenzingâ€™s chief commercial officer said that with Refibra, they add to the future of manufacturing and start to reassess waste as resource. The target is to close the loop. Lenzing is working for a better planet and they will not stop their innovation.
