Spinnova and Bergans Launch Circular Collection of Backpacks - Sustainable Textiles Launchpad @E2expo
Updated : 15-Oct-2020
Spinnova, the wood fibre producer from Finland, and Bergans, manufacturer of outdoor equipment from Norway, have introduced the Collection of Tomorrow concept, a fully circular, subscription-based takeback and reuse concept. Their first prototype in this collection is a backpack.
Spinnova was founded in 2015. The company's vision is a more sustainable textile industry, where sustainable cellulose-based materials are a cost-efficient, environmentally friendly and preferred option for brands, and available to all consumers.After two years of laboratory scale R&D, the technology was scaled up to a continuous pilot scale that was specifically built for this. The technology has been scaled up from a small pilot scale to an industrial pilot scale in December 2018, when the construction of their pilot line was completed. They will be finalizing product properties and production processes, while working on selected prototypes with partners.
