Spinnova transforms the way textiles are manufactured globally. Based in Finland, Spinnova has developed breakthrough patented technology for making textile fibre out of wood or waste, such as leather, textile or agricultural waste, without harmful chemicals. The SPINNOVA® fibre creates zero waste and side streams or microplastics, and its CO2 emissions and water use are minimal. SPINNOVA® materials are quickly biodegradable and circular. In 2023, Spinnova and the world’s largest pulp producer Suzano opened their first commercial-scale facility producing wood-based fibre.
Spinnova provides research and technology infrastructure, especially in dry spinning processes in pilot scale. It also acts as an active research partner and technology developer when novel approaches and ideas will be tested and validated.
"Spinnova’s mission is to produce the most sustainable textile fibres and materials in the world for the benefit of the environment and humanity."
