Fibertex Personal Care Supplying Sustainable Nonwovens For Diapers
Fibertex Personal Care has started supplying large quantities of ISCC Plus-certified nonwovens for the production of diapers.
The primary demand is bio-based nonwoven solutions and this new supply supports the ambitious goals for CO² reductions. Since Fibertex Personal Care first launched – and was certified to supply – nonwovens solutions fulfilling these demands two years ago, the market has experienced an increased awareness of environmentally friendly products influencing the demand for sustainable nonwoven solutions positively.
“It is a huge breakthrough for Fibertex Personal Care - and for the industry in general - as an important contribution to a more sustainable and responsible supply chain,” says Mette Due Søgaard, QA & Sustainability Director”.
The company's factory in Denmark achieved ISCC Plus certification two years ago – as the world's first producer of nonwovens for hygiene and medical applications. Shortly after, the Malaysian factory obtained same certification. This now leads the way for adding new CO² reduced consumer products on the shelves.
ISCC Plus is a supply chain certification for circular (recycled) and bio-based materials that provides traceability throughout the supply chain via mass balance. It also verifies that certified companies meet high environmental and social standards.
