In Sweden there is a new R & D program to explore the possibility of developing new fibers based on the use of wood or recycled bio-based materials to make textiles.
According to the Swedish Trade and Investment Commission, the project entitled "Establishing Swedish-made textiles" has received a grant of 45.5 million Swedish kronor (about US $ 5.2 million) in three years and will be awarded at Pernilla Walkenstrom, SwereaIVF, a scientific and engineering research institute Under the auspices of the plan. This huge sum of money is BioInnovation first grant of innovative development plan, BioInnovation is on the chemical, textile, forest industry research and development institutions.
Behind the plan, businesses, research institutes and academia will work together within three years to create a new type of textile fiber that is made from wood-based or recycled bio-based textiles.Stainless steel electroplate CNC turning part Bulk Production
According to Business Sweden's forecast, the global demand for textile fibers will increase with the growth of the middle class and urbanization. It is estimated that demand will triple by 2050. Production of petrochemical fibers and cotton fibers has reached partial saturation due to the adverse effects of the environment.
The agency said that "the program is a strategic initiative to develop non-woven textile and textile materials in Sweden and will draw on evidence from establishing a comprehensive cross-industry cooperation and business model by creating a comprehensive knowledge platform Individual Success Stories on the Feasibility of This Concept.
