Around the world, more than a hundred million tonnes of textile fibres are produced each year, and only a fraction is ever recycled.
Governments are starting to demand it, and we all know it: Textile products must become part of the circular bioeconomy.
There’s a catch to that, though. No one has ever been able to work out how.
Being Södra, we have a strong ally behind us. It’s called the Swedish forest. For more than eighty years, we have never stopped exploring the endless possibilities of wood – and making the best use of the opportunities.
In this case, the forest helps us to finally bring textiles into the circular bioeconomy. Over several years, we have developed and invested in a large-scale industrial process where we mix cellulose from wood with a substantial part-waste textile.
The result? A completely new raw material, ready to re-enter the textile industry
