Preferred Man Made Cellulosics (pMMC)
Preferred Man Made Cellulosics (pMMCs) is a term used by Textile Exchange referring to MMCs that are sourced from non-endangered certified forests and are manufactured more sustainably. This means chemicals, water and energy are properly managed to avoid pollution and human exposure. pMMCs include: Lyocell, Preferred Modal and Preferred Viscose. There is currently no third party industry standard to support the sustainability claims of a pMMC through the processing of pulp and fiber. Chain of Custody from certified feedstocks can be provided by the main forest standards (such as FSC) and through Textile Exchange’s Content Claim Standard (CCS).
