The 1st International Conference on Cellulose Fibres – Technologies, Applications and Sustainability in Textiles will take place from 11-12 February 2020 in Cologne, presenting the fastest growing fibre group in textiles, the largest investment sector in the bio-based economy and the solution for avoiding microplastics.
Cellulose fibres are a success story within the textiles market with a cumulated annual growth rate (CAGR) of at least 10% over the last ten years. This makes them the fastest growing fibre group in the textile industry and also the largest investment sector in the bio-based economy worldwide. The high growth rates are driven by the demand for natural fibres (and bottlenecks in cotton), the microplastic problem and possible bans for plastic fibres. All three drivers will continue to play a significant role in the future development of the sector.
The new conference organised by nova-Institute will cover the entire value chain of cellulose fibres from lignocellulosic feedstock, dissolving pulp, cellulose fibres – such as rayon, viscose, modal or lyocell and new developments – to a wide range of applications, woven textiles (clothing) and nonwovens (wipes and technical applications), as well as micro- and nanocellulose for food, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.
