Teknomelt San. ve Tic. A.Ş., with manufacturing locations in Kahramanmaraş and Istanbul, Turkey, is announcing the availability of fully and partially biodegradable nonwoven fabrics under the brand names Biona™ and Econa™ respectively.  The €50 million investment includes a state-of-the-art carded-carded-pulp (CCP) spunlace line that blends two technologies — spunlace and wetlaid — and transforms Teknomelt into a global player in sustainable nonwovens. The new facility will use bio-based fibers such as viscose and wood pulp to produce a high-performance and sustainable wiper with the same technical product characteristics and performance as a conventional wiper made of synthetic fibers, while protecting the environment at the same time.

Teknomelt will also support its customers using the line’s configuration flexibility which can be altered to produce pure spunlace, Wetlace CP or Wetlace CCP. This allows a wide range of different wipes to be produced.

Production will take place in a 20,000-square-meter closed area located on a 50,000-square-meter site.
