Mondi Ascania in Germany is building a new CAC line to make a 100% cellulose nonwoven for wipes, which is fully biodegradable
The material produced improves quality with high absorption and lotion-load Mondi, global leader in packaging and paper, has developed a new Carded Airlaid Carded (CAC) line to create a more sustainable three-layer nonwoven for wipes. These can be used for personal hygiene and cleaning purposes. This new line will use 100% cellulose content, including viscose and pulp from certified sources, resulting in a nonwoven material that is fully biodegradable. The new technology being used for the planned CAC line—located at Mondi's plant in Ascania, Germany—will make it possible to combine three layers into a highly functional and stable composite material. This will deliver optimal absorption and lotion load for high-quality biodegradable wipes and uses fewer resources than comparable carded mono-structures. The technology will be able to produce the entire sustainable nonwoven material in-line, while enabling hydro-embossing to increase softness and improve cleaning power. Mondi’s vision is to contribute to a better world, and its focus lies in producing innovative products that are sustainable by design. “The innovative technology means we can produce 100% biodegradable, high-performance nonwovens for wipes that are more accessible, and we are looking forward to introducing this to the market.” explained Kelly Wright, Mondi’s product expert for Personal Care and Components.
