ECOVERO is a viscose fibre produced under much more sustainable conditions than ordinary viscose fibre.
In order to produce viscose in general, the raw material wood is needed.
While wood is used for the extraction of the conventional viscose fibre, the origin of which is not transparently traceable, only wood whose traceability is given is used for the more environmentally friendly LENZING™ ECOVERO™ variant. This ensures that the viscose is made from legally obtained raw materials and that only certified and controlled wood from sustainable forestry is used.
But this is not the only advantage that sets ECOVERO apart from ordinary viscose fibre.
Due to the reduction of energy and water consumption by about 50%, which is made possible by innovative production processes of the company LENZING, the production of ECOVERO is significantly more environmentally friendly and resource-saving than the production of conventional viscose. In addition, shorter transport routes for the raw materials ensure lower emissions.
The handling of chemicals used in the production of viscose is also optimised in the production of LENZING™ ECOVERO™: both the chemicals and the water used are recycled as far as possible.
For its innovative and sustainable production, ECOVERO has been awarded the EU Ecolabel, the EU’s environmental quality mark awarded for meeting high environmental standards throughout a product’s life cycle.
