About AustroCel Hallein
Our core business is the efficient, sustainable and environmentally-friendly use of the raw material wood, which is used to produce high-quality textile pulp and bioenergy. We employ 246 workers at our Hallein site (15 km south of the city of Salzburg).
We exclusively use spruce wood (long fibre) from sustainably managed forests. Using various processes, we produce high-purity pulp to manufacture textile fibres (viscose). More than 60 million euros have been invested in our systems and processes. From the side streams of cellulose production, we gain green energy, district heating, biogas and lignosulphonate. We supply electricity and district heating to the public power grid and thus make an important contribution to reducing fossil CO2 emissions. Up to 20,000 households in Hallein and Salzburg are provided with electricity and district heating.
