With the completion and commissioning of an air purification and sulfur recovery plant at its site in Lenzing/Austria, Lenzing AG is moving closer to its goal of group-wide CO2-neutral production. Lenzing has invested approx. €40 million in this project since the start of construction in 2019. Using state-of-the-art technology, the plant will enable carbon emissions to be reduced by 15,000 tons at the Lenzing facility. This will also make the group more self-sufficient in securing vital raw materials for processing, which will bolster the site’s competitive standing in terms of sustainability.
In 2019, Lenzing set the strategic target of halving its group-wide greenhouse gas emissions per ton of product by 2030. Its goal for 2050 is to achieve climate neutrality.
