Frankfurt-based Zimmer AG recently was awarded contracts to build plants in China and Spain. Zimmer will build a lyocell staple fiber plant for Chinese Baoding Swan Co. Ltd., China. The plant will produce 30,000 tons of lyocell per year once it is fully operational in 2005. Zimmer will provide the technology, complete engineering and equipment; and will supervise the erection and start-up of the facility. This is the first time Zimmer has been commissioned in China to build a lyocell fiber facility based on its technology.Zimmer also received contracts for granulated PET plants. One contract came from Catalana de Polimers S.A., Spain, and the other from Changzhou Plastics Group Corp., China. Both companies intend to use the PET to make bottles.
