Friedrich Weninger of Lenzing AG opens Dornbirn MMFC 2012

Friedrich Weninger, CEO of Lenzing AG and President of the Austrian Man Made Fibres Institute opened the conference with a keynote speech stressing the importance of partnership, not ownership.

The meeting runs until Friday this week and features the latest developments in fibres with a special emphasis on the bio-based sustainable varieties.  Summaries will appear on this blog in due course.

Yoshitaka Aranishi of Toray provided an interesting update on their melt-spun cellulosic "Foresse" fibre.
