Asahi Kasei’s Fibers & Textiles SBU has completed the addition of new production facility for Bemliese cupro continuous-filament nonwoven fabric in Nobeoka, Miyazaki, Japan. Bemliese, the world’s only cupro continuous-filament nonwoven fabric, is composed of regenerated cellulose fibre made from cotton linter, the fibres around cotton seeds.

Bemliese is the ideal material for a wide range of applications—in the skincare and medical fields, as wipers for industrial and commercial use. Sold in markets around the world, Bemliese enjoys particularly strong demand growth in skincare applications.

The company took the decision to construct a new production facility based on the continued demand growth forecast. With the completion of the new facility, Asahi Kasei’s production capacity for Bemliese has increased by approximately 1,500 tons/year.

Moving forward, the Fibers & Textiles SBU will continue to expand production capacity and enhance the production infrastructure in order to strengthen the Bemliese supply configuration in line with additional growth in the global market. (RKS)
