Cleanest process. Least water use. Most climate positive. Disruptively circular. The most sustainable natural fibre in the world.
The best way to impact the world is not to. We are the only company in the world able to create textile fibre out of cellulose without involving any harmful chemicals, minimal water use and emissions and zero waste.
To create materials for the future, we went back to nature. Our natural fibre material is white continuous filament. It is ready as-is for spinning into yarn and knitting or weaving into fabric. With the stretch and strength qualities of cotton and the insulation of lamb’s wool, it can suit apparel, footwear, accessories, home textiles, non-wovens.. you name it.
Nature is clean and circular, and so is our fibre. Perhaps its most amazing feature is the fact that it can be upcycled several times in our process without losing quality. There are no tricks; the upcycling too takes place without harmful chemicals.
Also, the fibre can be dyed before the spinning phase, meaning we cut out the need for the water and chemicals used intensively in traditional dyeing processes.
0% HARMFUL CHEMICALS
99 % LESS WATER USE
SIGNIFICANTLY SMALLER CO2 EMISSIONS
Spinnova is unique from the outset. The raw material we use to create our fibre is the same pulp that's used for making paper. The wood comes from FSC and/or PEFC certified tree farms. We treat the pulp only mechanically, to create something called micro fibrillated cellulose; the feedstock for our process.
While we have pioneered our process using wood, it can be substituted with almost any kind of cellulose. We can process waste based cellulose biomasses, and are also looking into using post-consumer cotton. No further technology development is needed to utilize these alternatives.
The waste biomasses we are trialing are the real deal. They could potentially help solve environmental problems while making great textile fibre.
