ESPOO - Finnish forest industry group Metsä says that an independent life-cycle assessment (LCA) test has confirmed its new sustainable wood-based textile fibre, Kuura, has a lower impact on climate change than any commercially-available cellulosic fibre.

Spanish private research organisation Cartif carried out environmental and social performance tests on Kuura which is currently in R&D, being produced at a one ton per day demo plant in Äänekoski, Finland.

Metsä said the results of the tests were "very good news", confirming the new fibre showed the lowest impact on climate change compared to other commercial man-made cellulosic fibres, such as viscose and lyocell, and also to cotton.
