Lenzing Presents New Eco MicroModal Fiber

PARIS - Cellulose fiber producer Lenzing debuted a new fiber called MicroModal Edelweiss during the spring trade shows here.
     "Produced in an eco-friendly process known as Edelweiss, the micro fiber is particularly fine and luxurious," according to the company, which is based in Austria and operates an office in New York servicing the U.S. home textiles industry.
     Edelweiss-technology is based on oxygen-based chemistry and is the only Modal fiber which satisfies the highest environmental standards and is even CO2-neutral, said Lenzing.
     Additional Modal innovations are planned for autumn 2012, the company said.
     In the last 10 years, the production of Modal fibers has more than tripled - from 30,000 tons to more than 100,000 expected to be produced this year.
