Organisers of the first International Conference on Cellulose Fibres” in Cologne, Germany have described it as a success, attracting more than 200 participants “despite storm and virus warnings”.
The focus of the conference was on markets, technologies and sustainability and alternative cellulose feedstocks.
Josef Innerlohinger, from fibre producer Lenzing, said: “It was a really successful first edition of the International Conference on Cellulose Fibres and I hope that many more will follow. The talks and accompanying discussions covered a wide area of topics at a very high level.”
According to organisers, the cellulose fibre market is one of the fastest growing textile sectors, growing at between 5% and 10% annually over the past 10 years.
Jukka Kantola, CEO at consultancy NC Partnering and chairman of the World BioEconomy Forum, added: “There is a great momentum for cellulosic textile fibres. I’m optimistic that we will see more cellulosic fibres in the marketplace.”
The 2nd International Conference on Cellulose Fibres will take place in Cologne on 2 and 3 February 2021 at the same venue.
