Viscose Staple Fibre (VSF)

VSF is a regenerated cellulose fibre made from wood pulp, a sustainable natural resource and is bio-degradable and eco-friendly.

A versatile fibre, VSF is used in apparel, home textiles, dress materials, knit wears and non-woven applications. Grasim is India's pioneer in VSF- a man-made, bio-degradable fibre that is fast emerging as a sustainable alternative to cotton. Grasim’s Birla Cellulose range of fibres can be used in their original form or can be blended with all natural and synthetic fibres for enhanced comfort and feel.

Starting production in 1954 at its Nagda facility, Grasim’s business has grown steadily over six decades. The Pulp & Fibre Business derives its competitive edge from its integrated business model, with captive raw materials - dissolving grade wood pulp, caustic soda, carbon-disulphide, power generation and steam.

Through brownfield expansion and debottlenecking initiatives, Grasim plans to expand VSF capacity to 801 KTPA from 578 KTPA by FY 2022.

Grasim’s VSF Plants:
