You are welcome to join us in hearing and discussing about Spinnova and its supply chain in textile industry. Chief Sustainability Officer of Spinnova, Shahriare Mahmood will give a presentation on the subject. Your questions and comments will be welcome after the presentation.

Spinnova has brought a significant sustainable innovation to the textile industry with a potential to guide the industry towards sustainability in a substantive manner. Textile industry was looking for an alternative natural fibre for long as the industry has seen the innovations related to synthetic fibers and other man-made cellulosic fibers only. However, none of those are assumed to be the true replacement of any natural fiber, e.g. cotton. Spinnova has introduced a fiber that appears to have natural fiber properties and has proven to reduce the environmental burden associated to natural fiber production. With the ambition of scaling up the technology and establishing the first commercial scale factory in 2022, Spinnova is in a great position of introducing a whole bunch of textile products. With this ground-breaking innovation and textile expertise, it is in a position of taking lead in the supply chain beyond fiber products.
