Metsä Lyocell | New Cellulosic Fiber

A new sustainable cellulosic fiber jointly developed by ITOCHU and its business partner Metsa Group, a global leader in the Finnish forest industry. The new technology we have developed enables production of textile grade fibers from paper pulp using an ionic liquid (IL) as a solvent. Not only is it innovative and sustainable, this new fiber solves the safety issues in the production process of conventional cellulosic fibers

Metsä Fibre is part of the Finnish forest industry group Metsä Group. Metsä Fibre is owned by its parent company Metsäliitto Cooperative, Metsä Board and Itochu Corporation.
