Sustainable CAC nonwovens

Wiping unsustainable worries away

With our new Carded-Airlaid-Carded (CAC) line we can create a more sustainable three-layer nonwoven for wipes. It will use 100% cellulose content, including viscose and pulp from certified sources, resulting in a nonwoven material that is plastic-free and compostable.

The challenge: Clean can be quite messy

Hygiene wipes are a consumer's lovechild, as they have it all: clever packaging, nice nurturing lotion, good smell. But they come with a catch: they are a real liability, when it comes to disposal. They are tear-resistant, mostly made of non-decaying polymers and have a tendency to filter all sorts of dirt out of the sewerage – a combination fit to destroy the pumps of purification plants. Their end of life costs, payed for by the public hand, add up to 260% of their retail price. And that is in developed countries with intact sewage management. This makes for a rather big ecological footprint.

Guess what: We have a solution

A sustainable nonwoven with no compromise neither in comfort nor in performance. It is made entirely from biodegradable materials, completely free from any polymers. A 3-layer structure: 2 carded viscose outer layer encapsulate a pulp middle layer.

Sustainable nonwovens with a veeeeeery small footprint!

  • A 3-layer structure made of 100% sustainable raw materials
  • Significantly lower CO2 footprint than other biodegradable spunlace nonwovens
  • LCA results available in Q1/2022
