Join in: VTT webinar on Piloting in technology transfer

Would you like to hear more about novel pilots for regenerated cellulose fiber production? Are you interested in new man-made cellulosic fibers or wood-based textile fibers?

If the answer’s yes, you would probably enjoy attending the upcoming VTT webinar, which is a part of VTT’s Making of tomorrow programme. Webinar is free of charge and it will be held on the 1st of November 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM.

The consumption of textile fibers 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. Textile industry needs new sustainable solutions to meet this increasing demand.

Novel man-made cellulose fibers 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.

In this webinar, VTT will introduce the brand-new textile pilot facilities at Bioruukki. In addition, you will hear about the latest developments in the sustainable textile fiber production technologies. Presentations will be presented by Research Professor Ali Harlin (VTT), Senior Scientist Marianne Vehviläinen (VTT) and Doctoral Candidate Jari Laine (Aalto University).
