Lenzing to invest in wastewater treatment in UK

The company wants to reduce its wastewater emissions by 20% by the end of 2022 along with modernization of the wastewater treatment plant at the Purwakarta site (Indonesia). Lenzing also has biological wastewater treatment plants that meet the best available techniques (BAT) quality standards. According to Phil Munson, Director Operations Lyocell Grimsby, Lenzing, this is a big step in delivering the overall Lenzing strategic goals. He also said that it is a milestone to give the Grimsby site a solid platform for sustainable growth.

According to Stefan Doboczky, Chief Executive Officer, The Lenzing Group, Lenzing has its concrete sustainability targets that need to be met for strategic core areas. He also said that Lenzing is putting everything in a much-disciplined fashion. He also said that this project has shown that corporate citizenship and financial performance are not mutually exclusive but unlock synergies.

The construction of the new plant in Grimsby is a big step in reducing wastewater emissions by 20% by 2022. One of the core elements of Lenzing’s “Naturally positive” sustainability strategy is responsible water use. The present situation of wastewater at the site fully complies with the EU Water Framework Directive and follows all the laws and regulations set by the local authorities. The Supervisory Board has also given the approval that the construction can begin this year. It is also believed that the commissioning of this lyocell site attracts the largest investment, which produces premium products for technical and innovative market segments.
