Lenzing and Renewcell enter multi-year agreement to sell textiles made from Circulose®

Lenzing, the world’s leading supplier of sustainably produced specialty textile fibers, has entered a multi-year supply agreement with Renewcell where 80,000 to 100,000 tons of Circulose® will be bought over a five year period and included in the production of textiles for the fashion industry and other applications.
A new supply agreement will put Circulose® into the textile market on a commercial scale

In order for the fashion industry to transform into being truly sustainable, it’s not enough to switch to using more sustainably produced materials. We need to close the loop and reuse textiles as many times as possible, to reduce the environmentally damaging extraction of resources that the fashion industry causes today. This also keeps the carbon embedded in the cellulose fibers for a longer period of time, before they are released into the atmosphere through incineration or landfilling.
Lenzing Group has realized this and set a goal that their TENCEL™ and LENZING™ ECOVERO™ branded specialty textile fibers will be offered with up to 50% post-consumer recycled content by 2025 on a commercial scale. As a part of this transition, the Group has entered into a supply agreement with Renewcell to buy 80,000 to 100,000 tons of recycled Circulose® dissolvable pulp, for use in textile production.
“Lenzing is a major player in our industry, with an inspiring track record of path-breaking technical excellence and sustainability leadership. Our new partnership fits perfectly into Renewcell’s strategy to accelerate the scale-up of circular materials by collaborating with fashion’s most important players. We are more than pleased to join forces with Lenzing with the shared goal of making fashion circular.” said Patrik Lundström, CEO of Renewcell, in a comment on the agreement.
