Global environmental concerns, such as climate change and marine plastic pollution, are creating new market expectations and demand for sustainable nonwovens.
To meet the growing demand in sustainable, plastic-free wipes, the nonwovens producer Suominen Corp., Helsinki/Finland, has launched Biolace Pure for wipes, nonwovens made of biodegradable, compostable, and renewable plant-based fibers and wood pulp from certified forests. The Biolace Pure wipe material is a 3-layer solution that guarantees optimal liquid management. The soft outer layers ensure that the wipe cleans effectively and softly. Compared e.g. to 100% viscose product for wipes, Biolace Pure brings high cleaning power with a lighter carbon footprint and a lower environmental impact.
