Insights

  • Andritz launches a new nonwovens production line at Teknomelt Teknik Mensucat San. ve Tic. in Turkiye, producing biodegradable wet wipes.
  • The neXline wetlace CCP line combines spunlace and wetlaid technologies, enabling the use of bio-based fibres like viscose and wood pulp.
  • This supports Teknomelt's sustainability goals and expands their product range.
International technology group Andritz has successfully started up a new nonwovens production line supplied to Teknomelt Teknik Mensucat San. ve Tic. in Kahramanmaras, Turkiye.

The new neXline wetlace CCP (carded-carded-pulp) line produces nonwoven roll goods for biodegradable, plastic-free wet wipes, the company said in a press release.

By combining the benefits of two technologies, spunlace and wetlaid, the line enables the use of bio-based fibres, like viscose and wood pulp, to produce a high-performance and sustainable wipe with the same technical product characteristics and performances as a conventional wipe made of synthetic fibres while protecting the environment. This perfectly supports Teknomelt’s sustainable development goals and opens new growth opportunities for the company.

“With this start-up we have achieved a new milestone in our production. Using Andritz’s Wetlace CCP technology, we produce our new Biona fabric brand. Made of viscose and pulp, our Biona fabrics are not only 100 per cent biodegradable but also extra soft and highly absorbent,” Salih Ziya Gumuser, general manager at Teknomelt, said.

Teknomelt is one of the leading manufacturers of nonwoven meltblown, spunbond, SMS and SMMS fabrics in Turkiye. The company serves a wide range of markets, exporting 45 per cent of its production. With the new Andritz wetlace CCP line, the company is expanding its range of sustainable nonwovens production for wipes.

This start-up strengthens Andritz’s strong global position in the supply of state-of-the-art production lines for nonwoven roll goods for sustainable wipes.
