J-Fiber Jena

Intelligent eco-management where ecology and economy win both

Manufacturing best quality products can be done both, ecologically sound and profitable. j-fiber has been a pioneer in the company-wide implementation of green & safe manufacturing processes and supply chain control. It is even possible to conserve raw materials in production based on complex chemical processes and operate in an environmentally compatible manner by means of emission control systems and recycling processes. We see this as our responsibility – and it saves costs.

EMAS environmental audit


j-fiber has been the first European fiber company to pass the strict eco-audit EMAS in June 1998 where independent environmental auditors have certified that j-fiber’s manufacturing facilities in Jena operate an efficient and effective environmental management system which is based on the EU's Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) directive EMAS I (EWG 1836/93). The registration of the facility was recorded in November 1999. The fiber plant successfully passed the regular auditing procedure according to EMAS II (EWG 761/2001) in September 2008. In September 2010 we successfully passed EMAS III (EWG 1221/2009) and were validated in August 2014 and September 2017. The registration is valid through September 30th, 2020.
