Weyerhaeuser, Lenzing Partner On Sustainable Non-Wovens

Weyerhaeuser, a forest products company, and Lenzing, a cellulose staple fibers producer,  signed a Memorandum of Understanding recently and will work together on the development of novel lyocell-based non-woven fabrics.

The goal of the partnership is to develop a technology for large-scale industrial production of a sustainable cellulose-based material for industrial and personal care applications; and to provide an alternative to petroleum-based materials in non-woven products with raw materials based on renewable wood fiber.

In early 2008, Weyerhaeuser announced a joint venture with Chevron to develop the next generation of renewable transportation fuels from nonfood sources.

In March, Weyerhaeuser made it into Fortune Magazine’s top 10 most admired companies in terms of social responsibility.
