Spain's Sniace group member Celltech obtains FSC and PEFC certifications for wood management and dissolving pulp

December 02, 2012 - 21:49

MADRID, Spain, Dec. 3, 2012 (Press Release) -Following worldwide standards for wood certification, the Spanish company CELLTECH achieved several goals regarding Wood Management following FSC and PEFC standards, and thus took a new step forward into a sustainable and responsible production of Dissolving Pulp.

CELLTECH obtained the FSC Controlled Wood certification. This accomplishment attests that the wood in use comes from responsibly managed forests that benefit local communities and the environment. The origin of the material must be known and the wood must not come from sources classified as controversial by the FSC organization such as illegally harvested wood, raw material harvested in violation of traditional and civil right etc...

CELLTECH's custody chain has been also certified by the PEFC organization. This means that the traceability of the raw material of forest origin (and its derivates during the several stages of the production process) have been evaluated positively by the organization. Additionally, CELLTECH can also deliver Dissolving Pulp that is 100% certified PEFC.

Five years ago, CELLTECH had already reinforced its commitment with the environment and the sustainability, producing Totally Chorine Free (TCF) Dissolving pulp. In fact, chlorine were completely replaced by Ozone and H2O2 in the production process making of CELLTECH one of the few companies offering TCF Dissolving Pulp in the international market.

Thanks to FSC and PEFC certifications and the company's commitment to consolidate its environmental policy, CELLTECH aims to keep being one of the most responsible Dissolving Pulp producers in the world in the new future.

The company CELLTECH, member of SNIACE GROUP, produces and commercializes Dissolving Pulp for Viscose Staple Fiber, Cellophane, Sponges, MCC and CMC applications. SNIACE S.A. is a European group located in Northern of Spain, whose activity and process is totally integrated, from the plantation of woods, to the production of Viscose Staple Fiber, through the manufacture of Dissolving Pulp. SNIACE evolves in a worldwide environment with four working centers located in Spain, Europe and Asia, including customers from every continent.
