Lenzing Group Builds World’s Largest Lyocell Fiber Plant in Thailand

July 2019

Austria-based Lenzing Group has approved the construction of a state-of-the art lyocell (a type of rayon made from wood pulp) fiber production plant in Prachinburi, Thailand, which will be the largest in the world. The plant will have a capacity of 100,000 tons and feature investments of approximately EUR 400 million.

Site grading at Industrial Park 304 around 150 kilometers east of Bangkok has been completed, and the investment is supported by the Board of Investment of Thailand. Construction will start this in autumn 2019 and production will commence towards the end of 2021.

The selection of Industrial Park 304 in Prachinburi was based on its excellent overall Infrastructure and the sustainable biogenic Energy supply, which leads to low CO2 emissions to protect the climate. Over the coming years Lenzing will further expand at the site in Thailand, which has space for several plants.
