nova-Institute: International Conference on Cellulose Fibres 2022
The nova-Institute is hosting the „International Conference on Cellulose Fibres 2022“, the fastest growing fibre group in textiles, the largest investment sector in the bio-based economy and the solution for avoiding microplastics.
The International Conference on Cellulose Fibres 2022 covers the entire value chain, from lignocellulose, chemical pulp, cellulose fibres such as rayon, viscose, modal or lyocell and new developments to a wide range of applications: Textiles of all kinds, nonwovens such as wet wipes and new areas such as composites or nanocellulose in the food industry. All these sectors have gained considerable momentum in recent years.
Cellulose fibres have been a success story within the textile market with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) between 5 and 10 % over the last ten years and similar growth rates are expected in the coming decade. This makes cellulosic fibres the fastest growing fibre group in the textile industry and also the largest investment sector in the global bioeconomy.
Also, the innovation award “Cellulose Fibre Innovation of the Year” will be granted to the innovative cellulose fibre industry for developing new technologies and applications. The Cellulose Fibre Innovation of the Year 2022 Award will be voted for by conference delegates on 2 February and awarded during the conference dinner in the evening.
