Demonstration plant for upscaling sustainable textile fiber
Looking at the sustainability targets, the new technology would mean less use of energy, chemicals and water when benchmarked to the production of conventional fibers. The novel process is engineered to suit large scale production and includes a recovery system for reusing chemicals. TreeToTextile’s strong sustainability performance is confirmed by a third party verified Life-Cycle-Assessment study.
The new demonstration plant will be established at Stora Enso’s Nymölla mill in southern Sweden, and construction will start in spring 2021. The production capacity will be 1,500 tons fiber/year.
