Bright Future of Cellulose Fibers in Textiles, Hygiene,  Construction and Packaging – Conference Shows Top Innovations 

“Cellulose Fibre Innovation of the Year 2024” award: DITF & VRETENA win with “The straw flexi-dress: design meets sustainability” against strong  competition 

Hürth, 19 March 2024: Cellulose fibres are the only bio-based and biodegradable fibres that cover a  wide range of properties and applications and can rapidly increase their capacity. The raw materials can  be virgin wood as well as all types of cellulosic waste streams from forestry, agriculture, cotton  processing, textile and paper. Increasing the share of cellulose fibres will therefore play a crucial role in  solving the sustainability challenges of the textile industry. 

The “Cellulose Fibres Conference 2024” held in Cologne on 13-14 March demonstrated the innovative  power of the cellulose fibre industry. Several projects and scale-ups for textiles, hygiene products,  construction and packaging showed the growth and bright future of this industry, supported by the policy  framework to reduce single-use plastic products, such as the Single Use Plastics Directive (SUPD) in  Europe.
