Lenzing decide on heavily subsidised Burgenland site for Lyocell. (1995)

This small piece in Knitting International June 1995 was the first cutting with hard news of the Lenzing decision on scaling up their lyocell process.  Courtaulds Tencel had been in commercial production since 1990 in the UK and 1992 in the USA, not since '94 as suggested here.

A similar article in Chemical Fibres International at the same date added that the Lenzing plant would come on stream in 2 halves, with the first 10,000 tonnes scheduled for '97.
