New fibre technology will soon be a reality in textile industry and for the production of clothes. Researchers at Aalto University and the University of Helsinki are working out spinning process to produce cellulosic textile fibres from Finnish wood – as an next better alternative to cotton, viscose or Tencel fibres.
Cotton production is very much water demanding and cotton production can not increase anymore. Also, cotton competes with food production from land-based agriculture. The needs for other natural, friendly and sustainable alternative are enormous.
