Spinnova Public Offering
Textile fibre produced naturally.
From wood. From straw. From recycled materials.
Spinnova technology solving the environmental challenges of the textile industry – on a global scale.
Spinnova in brief
Spinnova has developed a production technology for a transformative new textile fibre produced with a mechanical production process, known as SPINNOVA® fibre. The production technology allows for the production of SPINNOVA® fibre from multiple raw material inputs, including wood pulp and leather waste, and other renewable raw materials such as agricultural, food and beverage industry waste and textile waste.
SPINNOVA® fibre is 100 per cent recyclable, quickly biodegradable, contains no microplastics and can be produced without dissolution or the use of harmful chemicals or harmful additives. Carbon dioxide emissions from the production of SPINNOVA® fibre are approximately 65 per cent less than that of cotton over the lifecycle from farming to fibre processing, and considerably less than that of polyester and viscose.1
Spinnova is ramping up a global commercialisation phase. The company expects to commercialise its technology platform, which is able to produce SPINNOVA® fibre from multiple raw materials without requiring changes in the underlying technology. The technology platform has been proven effective at the company’s industrial scale pilot production facility in Jyväskylä, Finland that has been operational for more than two years.
