Sateri to expand Lyocell production in China

Sateri to expand Lyocell production in China

Sateri, the world's largest producer of viscose fibre, is planning to expand its Lyocell production in China, with total planned annual capacity of up to 500,000 tonnes by 2025.

Sateri, the world’s largest producer
of viscose fibre, is planning to expand its Lyocell production in China, with
total planned annual capacity of up to 500,000 tonnes by 2025.

The first phase of this expansion
kicked off recently with ground breaking works for a new 100,000 tonne facility
in Changzhou, Jiangsu province.  Another
100,000 tonne facility will be built in Nantong, Jiangsu province later this
year.  The Changzhou Lyocell facility is
expected to commence production in the third quarter of 2022 and will create
more than 800 jobs.

Sateri’s first foray into China’s
Lyocell market was in May 2020 when its 20,000 tonne Lyocell production line in
Rizhao, Shandong province commenced production. 
The same site houses a 5,000 tonne Lyocell pilot production line
dedicated for the development of Lyocell application technology.

Allen Zhang, President of Sateri,
said, “Sateri’s continued investment in Lyocell not only responds to the
changing needs of the market and the textile industry but also supports China’s
green development plans.  It is also very
much a part of Sateri’s 2030 Vision commitment to sustainable development where
we actively seek to adopt a circular economy model through clean and
closed-loop production technology and innovation.”

A natural and biodegradable fibre,
Sateri’s Lyocell is made from wood pulp sourced from certified and sustainable
plantations.  It is manufactured using
closed-loop technology, requiring minimal chemical input during the production
process, and utilising an organic solvent that can be almost fully recovered
and recycled.

In anticipation of strong demand for
Lyocell in the coming years, Tom Liu, Sateri’s Vice President and General
Manager of Lyocell and Nonwovens Business, said: “Customer-centricity is
Sateri’s promise.  The new expansion
plans will enable us to extend our domestic and international market reach and
provide our customers with high quality and comprehensive fibre products.  At the same time, we will invest in
technology improvement, application development, and brand collaboration to
bolster the industry”.

Sateri is the world’s largest
producer of viscose fibre, a natural and sustainable raw material found in
everyday items like textiles, baby wipes and personal hygiene products. Our
range of high quality viscose products is independently verified as safe and
responsibly produced.

Sateri is committed to the
fundamental principles of sustainable development; our business practices are
underpinned by strict adherence to our Sustainability Policy, Pulp Sourcing Policy
and universally accepted environmental and social standards.
