Andritz has received an order for a complete neXline spunlace line from Biosphere Corporation, the leading Ukrainian manufacturer of household and hygiene products.

The line will enable Biosphere to produce fabrics from 30-70gsm, with an hourly output of up to 3,000 kg/hr after the second commissioning phase. Start-up is scheduled in two stages – the first one the first quarter of 2022 and the second in early 2023, to reach full production capacity.

The high-capacity spunlace line will double the company’s current production capacity and is designed to process various types of fibres, such as polyester/viscose blends and natural fibres. It is dedicated to the production of household, medical and hygiene fabrics, such as cosmetic, disinfecting and baby wipes.

“Our goal is to carry on creating innovative and premium-quality products,” said Andriy Zdesenko, founder and CEO of Biosphere Corporation. “When Andritz came up with a tailor-made offer combining its cutting-edge spunlace technology with full flexibility for our future installation, we knew they were the ideal partner to support us in our business development.”

In 2019, Andritz Diatec also delivered a baby diaper converting line to Biosphere, which was founded in 1997 and has become the market leader in the production and distribution of household and hygiene products in the Ukraine and the CIS. It is also a key converter for Eastern Europe and Central Asia and is expanding rapidly on the international market, including into Africa.
