Asia Pacific Rayon is committed to clean production of viscose rayon fiber. The company constantly strives to operate in the top quartile of viscose rayon manufacturing, in terms of reduced greenhouse gas emissions, improved carbon disulphide recovery, and wastewater management in line with industry-leading practices.
Based in Indonesia Asia Pacific Rayon is the first fully integrated viscose rayon producer in Asia from plantation to viscose fiber and has a production capacity of 2,40,000 tons per annum. Almost half of the output is used in the domestic market, while the rest is exported to countries like Turkey, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Germany and Italy. Being fully integrated from plantation to viscose-rayon bale, the company has minimal risk of supply disruption and is also protected against the volatility of commodity prices.
Asia Pacific Rayon has invested in a pilot-scale yarn and fabric manufacturing operation, which is expected to start-up in the first quarter of 2020. It will possess all three spinning technologies of ring, open-end and MVS to produce yarn for both knitting and woven applications, with a capacity of 7,600 tons per year. The aim is to help build a vibrant and sustainable textile industry where raw materials are responsibly grown, using the latest technologies to maximize efficiencies and to supply world-class products for customers all over the world.
