ESPOO - A pilot line has been created in Finland to produce a new sustainable cellulose-based fibre called Ioncell which turns wood-based materials and textile waste into high quality fibres.

It has been set up at Aalto University, where Ioncell - which can also make use of recycled newspaper and cardboard as raw materials and can itself be recycled - was developed in partnership with the University of Helsinki.

Professor Herbert Sixta, who led the development of Ioncell, said the pilot production line was completely different from the process previously used to produce Ioncell in small batches.
