Spinnova, developer of the most sustainable textile fibre, is to begin production in its pilot factory in Finland by the year end. Spinnova represents a disruptive cellulose fibre innovation that includes no dissolving or other complex chemical processes. The aim is to create a scalable technology concept for fibre production for joint ventures or licensing.

Spinnova’s product development has now reached a phase where the fibre and its production method are developed on an industrial scale. Spinnova’s objective is to create a scalable technology concept for fibre production, for joint ventures or licensing.

“We have made excellent progress with our research and development. Spinnova fibre’s qualities are already on an excellent level for several end products. The speed of growth-enabling developments, such as technology solutions, partnerships and production space, has also exceeded our expectations,” comments Spinnova’s CEO Janne Poranen.

The Spinnova fibre and textiles made of it are being developed in cooperation with partners and raw material suppliers. The first partner Spinnova has disclosed is the renowned Finnish design house Marimekko. Spinnova also has several other partners committed to joint product development, all globally known retail brands.

Spinnova’s commercial partners’ criteria and different raw material functionalities will define which material is used for each application.

“The only thing that’s non-negotiable for Spinnova is sustainability; that raw materials are either renewable or waste material,” Poranen emphasises. (SV)
