The unique conference focused on cellulose fibres – in textiles, hygiene products and packaging
Cellulose Fibre Innovation of the Year 2023 – From Hygiene Products, Sustainability Improved Technologies to Cellulose from Textile Waste and Banana Production Waste
Six award nominees will present promising sustainable solutions for the industry in the field of cellulose fibres value chains. See their full potential displayed to a wide audience in Cologne (Germany), and online.
For the third time, nova-Institute awards the “Cellulose Fibre Innovation of the Year” award in the frame of the “Cellulose Fibres Conference 2023” (8-9 March 2023). The conference advisory board nominated six remarkable products, including cellulose fibres from textile waste, banana production waste and bacterial pulp, a novel technology for producing lyocell yarns and a hygiene product. The innovations will be put to the vote of the conference audience on the first day of the event, with the awards ceremony taking place in the evening. The innovation award “Cellulose Fibre Innovation of the Year 2023” is sponsored by GIG Karasek (AT).
Cellulose fibres show a steadily expanding range of applications. At the same time, markets are driven by technological developments and political framework conditions, especially bans and restrictions on plastics and increasing sustainability requirements for textiles. The European Commission has made the thorough transition towards sustainability and circularity for different industries and especially the textile sector a main focus. All nominees will therefore introduce innovative pathways towards more sustainable technologies and products.

Sustainability is Focus at Circularity Cellulose Fibres Conference 2023
The success story of cellulose fibers continues and will be on full display at nova-Institute’s Cellulose Fibres Conference in Cologne, Germany, March 8-9. A slew of presentations focusing on the latest developments in the sustainable circular industry will be presented by seasoned industry experts and analysts.
The commercial production of man-made cellulose fibers currently relies on the use of dissolving-grade pulp from wood. Alternative feedstocks such as non-wood fibers, textile waste or even paper grade pulp provide new and alternative raw materials for related industries. A wider raw material base also holds great potential for further optimizing the environmental compatibility of man-made cellulosic fibers.
The presentations at the Cellulose Fibres Conference will provide valuable information on the wide range of applications for cellulosic fibers with alternative or improved feedstocks and technologies, closed loop and circular systems and their environmental impacts.
The conference will have five main topics: Traditional and New Markets for Cellulose Fibers; Circular Economy and Recyclability of Fibers; Sustainability and Environmental Impacts; Alternative Feedstocks; and, Ionic Liquids and New Technologies for Pulps, Fibers and Yarns.
