Ioncell’s Ionic Innovation for Recycling Fibre - Sustainable Textiles Launchpad @E2expo
Ioncell® is a technology that turns used textiles, pulp or even old newspapers into new textile fibers sustainably and without harmful chemicals. The Ioncell® process converts cellulose into fibers which in turn can be made into long-lasting fabrics. It uses an environmentally friendly solvent that can be recycled, giving rise to fibres that work well in both clothing and technical applications.
