The European Court of Justice (ECJ) has upheld a Judgment by the European Court of First Instance that Sniace's action for annulment of a Commission Decision was inadmissible. The Commission Decision authorised State aid granted by Austria to Lenzing for the construction of a factory for the production of lyocell fibres. As Sniace only produced viscose fibres, the ECJ underlined that Sniace had failed to demonstrate any direct competition between lyocell and viscose fibres. Since the aid granted to Lenzing would not substantially affect Sniace’s position in the market, the ECJ confirmed that Sniace was not individually affected by the Commission Decision. In a separate case, the ECJ confirmed that an action lodged by Lenzing against aid granted to Sniace was admissible because both companies produce viscose fibres.
