Environmental news and technical  innovation in the nonwovens sector

Pictured are researchers working on the EcoLASTANE European Commission 7th Framework Programme project.  Their aim is to develop the technology for producing bio-based synthetic  fibres from biomass-derived furanic monomers.

It is planned that both elastane and polyester will be produced by optimising an industrial technology which produces 100% bio-based chemicals –furfural, HMF, THF and FDCA – from lignocellulosic feedstocks such as wood and crop residues.
