Enhanced dissolving pulp from Eucalyptus globulus towards cellulose-based textile fibres

Co-funded by: -Co-funded by

Fiber4Fiber project intent to develop optimized dissolving pulps, from Portuguese Eucalyptus globulus trees, to produce man-made cellulosic fibres – Lyocell and Viscose, that can be traced along the value chain. This traceability will make it possible to distinguish products with sustainable origin from others similar that come from less responsible management sources, making it crucial to leverage the use of these fibres in increasingly demanding applications.

These pulps will also be used to develop innovative functionalized lyocell fibres, to be marketed as premium products, as textile fibres and technical yarns.

Main goals

1. Improve national research, technological development, and innovation;

2. Evaluate the impact of Eucalyptus globulus pulp’s quality on the fibres spinning processes;

3. Optimization of dissolving pulps from CAIMA company for the processes of Viscose and Lyocell;

4. Functionalization of CAIMA's pulp to be traceable;

5. Development of functionalized Lyocell fibres for technical textiles production.
