1st International Conference on Cellulose Fibres

1st International Conference on Cellulose Fibres

Forests for Fashion

Cellulose Fibres are the fastest growing fibre group in textiles, the largest investment sector in the bio-based economy and the solution to avoid microplastics when washing textiles.

The 1st International Conference on Cellulose Fibres will cover the entire value chain from the lignocellulosic feedstock, dissolving pulp, cellulose fibres – viscose and lyocell and new developments – to a wide range of applications, woven textiles (clothing) and non-wovens (wipes and technical applications), as well as micro- and nanocellulose for food, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. 

The aim is to gather technology providers and developers, academia and industry, pulp, fibre and equipment suppliers, retailers and textile brands, policy makers and investors to debate latest technology developments and recent market dynamics.
