With the recently announced plans to establish a lyocell production facility in Thailand, the Lenzing Group is taking an important step in meeting the strong demand for lyocell fibers and is further strengthening the company´s position as an industry leader in the speciality cellulosic fibres market. The proposed plant will be the largest lyocell plant in the world, with an annual capacity of 100,000 tonne. The total investment volume for the first production line, including infrastructure and site development, amounts to approximately 400 mn euro. Up to four such lines can be potentially integrated and operated on the site. The project is of great importance to Lenzing as it is the first step in bringing lyocell production to Asia, featuring the largest markets, the most important customers and the most extensive growth potential in speciality fibre production.
