Courtaulds starts large scale Tencel production (1990)

Rare publicity in "The Chemical Engineer" apparently based on an interview with Barrie March and Donald Anderson.  Also a rare outing for the "environmentally secure" euphemism used when "environmentally friendly" was out of favour.  Other notable aspects bearing in mind the June 1990 date:
  • "[exotherms] not discovered until the project was well advanced."
  • The  criticism of the viscose process for its pollution did not go down well in the Viscose operations.
(Apologies if it is hard to read - zooming in should help)
