Textile Circularity Finds New Hope with Circulose-Based Spinnova Fibre
Finland's sustainable textile material company Spinnova will partner with Swedish textile recycling leader Renewcell to develop and promote a concept to commercialise and scale textile waste-based fibre.
This biodegradable raw material was produced from 100% recycled textiles and can be used to create new fibre.
Until now, Circulose was used to create man-made cellulosic fibres, such as viscose.
With Spinnova’s transformative technology, the partners can turn Circulose into a new, bio-based textile fibre without any harmful chemicals in the fibre spinning process.
This is a step towards addressing the industry’s growing textile waste problem, while setting new standards for sustainable textile fibre production.
Spinnova has already made successful trials spinning the Circulose pulp into new textile fibre.
The companies are currently assessing options to start scaling textile-to-textile fibre production with potential partners and expect to start developing the first consumer collection made from Circulose-based Spinnova fibre.
