VTT Webinar: Piloting in technology transfer, on Nov 1, 2018

The consumption of textile fibres has increased from 50 million tons to more than 70 million tons during the last decade. The trend is expected to continue due to demographic and economic development. The textile industry needs new sustainable solutions to meet this increasing demand.

Novel man-made cellulose fibres have a huge global business potential, and a lot of technology development is on-going around this topic. Piloting is an important step in the transferring of the new technologies towards industrialization.

Join the webinar and learn new about

  • Three sustainable options for regenerated cellulose fibre production
  • Good practices for demonstrations
  • How digitalization accelerates piloting and commercialisation of new processing technologies
  • The available pilot facilities for textile fi bre production
