Products using black pigments prepared from wood waste by US-based Nature Coatings will be commercially available next year, according to company founder Jane Palmer. The firm is working to make it cost competitive with petrol-based pigments, and that is possible as over 50 million tonnes of wood waste is generated each year in the US alone, feels Palmer.

The pigment has been developed in a way so that the production process is easily scalable and it can work with existing mill equipment and formulations. There is no up-front capital expenditure needed to use the new pigment, Palmer told Fibre2Fashion in an interview.
