To serve rapidly growing customer demand, global specialty materials provider Eastman Chemical Co., Kingsport, TN/USA, is increasing its capacity to produce Naia filament yarn at its site in Barcelona/Spain by 30% by mid-2021 and more than 50% by the end of 2022.

The growing importance of sustainability and circularity as key market drivers is accelerating adoption of sustainable fibers. As a result, Naia cellulosic filament yarn is gaining a lot of traction among customers.

The expansion will support new brand adoptions of Naia in womenswear fashion, where there is a growing demand for sustainable fibers.
