Tecfil, a Brazilian company and the largest manufacturer of automotive filters in Latin America, is introducing the world’s first sustainable lignin-based automotive filter, the EcoLigna, to the North American market.
The EcoLigna is produced with an innovative filtering medium. Its uniqueness lies in using paper with a manufacturing process that reduces CO2 emissions by 20% and also in its 15% superior performance compared to conventional filters, thanks to the technology employed.
“We are introducing a new line of filters with superior performance and focus on sustainability to the North American market, priced equivalently to traditional products,” said Plinio Fazol, Marketing and New Products Manager at Tecfil, emphasizing that Tecfil is the first company in the world to adopt this technology in the filtering medium.
Tecfil marked its 70th anniversary in 2023, reinforcing its leading position in the Brazilian market and its global reputation in the filter industry, with exports to over 60 countries, including the United States and Latin American nations.
