Daily life is unthinkable today without the various kinds of wet wipes available everywhere. These wipes are practical and hygienic - but mostly have a huge ecologic footprint. Usually made from oil-based polyester or polypropylene fibers, they do not decompose – they will still be traceable as microplastics one hundred years from now.
Pulp, the starting material used in paper production, and regenerated cellulose fibers, on the other hand, are raw materials made from wood, a renewable resource, And both fiber types are completely biodegradable.
Our reliable wet-laid/spunlace technology (WLS) is designed precisely for this material. Trützschler Nonwovens offers complete production lines for wet-laid and spunlaced nonwovens in cooperation with the German company Voith. This way sustainability and economic success can go hand in hand.
