Moving forward towards carbon neutral nonwovens
Sustainability is at the core of Suominen’s strategy. Therefore, we work continuously to extend our product portfolio of sustainable nonwovens.
BIOLACE® Zero can be used for many kinds of wiping applications like baby, personal care, and household wipes.
BIOLACE® Zero is our carbon neutral nonwoven product made of 100% cellulosic carbon neutral VEOCEL™ Lyocell fibers.
BIOLACE® Zero is 100% biodegradable, compostable and plastic free. It can be used for many kinds of wiping applications like baby, personal care, and household wipes due to its excellent wet and dry strength and improved softness. BIOLACE® Zero is certified according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®. FSC® and PEFC certifications are available on request.
The VEOCEL™ Lyocell fibers are produced by Suominen’s long-term partner Lenzing. We choose to work with other frontrunners in their fields, as we believe collaboration benefits the whole nonwoven industry’s sustainability efforts and targets.
How is carbon neutrality achieved?
Carbon neutrality means that the greenhouse gas emissions of nonwoven have been calculated from the raw material production to the customer’s production facility. They are then reduced and offset through certified carbon offset projects.
BIOLACE® Zero’s carbon neutrality has been certified by ClimatePartner. The offset project we are supporting for BIOLACE® Zero’s part is a forest protection program in Mataven, Columbia. The program helps support indigenous peoples to avoid deforestation. The initiative protects 1,150,200 hectares of tropical forests, safeguarding its biodiversity.
