The specialist know-how of our engineers in the former Schwarza Chemical Fiber Combine gives the EPC Group profound knowledge of spinning viscose. As this manufacturing process has been criticized for many years for its lack of environmental compatibility, our experts are applying their knowledge to look for alternative solutions for the use of existing viscose plants. Cellulose-based yarns are indispensable, both as textiles and as technical fibers and yarns.

The specialists in the EPC Group are working on the further development of an alternative, urea-based process for the dissolution of pulp. This cellulose carbamate process is intended to enable existing viscose plant to be converted at reasonable cost. Naturally, the results of the R&D are currently being evaluated not only for their technological feasibility but also for their cost-effectiveness.
