AUSTRIA: Tencel receives Ecocert certification
Fibre business Lenzing Group has revealed that its Tencel fibres are now certified with the Ecocert eco-friendly logo.
Tencel, used primarily in the textile industry but also for non-woven materials and technical applications, can now be labelled with the Ecocert logo.
