The Discover Natural Fibres Initiative has announced the finalists for the DNFI Innovation in Natural Fibres Award 2017. The finalists represent a diverse set of technologies and approaches with good commercial possibilities. The award recognises innovation in development of products and processes using natural fibres. The winner will be announced October 6.

Evaluation criteria are outstanding scientific work and technical feasibility, level of improvement or effectiveness of the innovation over existing products or processes, degree to which the innovative product or process has been implemented, and potential for opening new outlets, markets or sectors for products made of natural fibres.

The chair of DNFI, Terry Townsend, former executive director of the International Cotton Advisory Committee, noted that many submissions were of exceptional quality and choosing the five finalists had been a very difficult process.

There is a two-round selection process. Nominations were accepted through July 28, 2017, and a sub-committee of DNFI members narrowed the list in the first round. In the second round, now underway through October 5, 2017, all members of DNFI, and anyone, anywhere in the world, including persons who are not members of DNFI, may create a voter ID on the DNFI website and vote for their top choice. A single winner will be chosen by majority vote.

The five finalists include Cloppenburg, Frederik, head of Research Group Nonwoven Technology, Institute für Textilechnik (ITA) der RWTH Aachen University, Germany, and Popzyk, Marie-Isabel from Institute für Textilechnik (ITA) der RWTH Aachen University and Klein, Roland, from Fraunhofer-Institute for Structural Durability and System Reliability LBF, Germany.
