Spinnova and Eastman latest ZDHC contributors

Jan 12, 2021 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --

<p>Finnish sustainable fibre producer&nbsp;Spinnova and&nbsp;specialty materials maker&nbsp;Eastman are among the latest to join the&nbsp;ZDHC Roadmap to Zero Programme as&nbsp;contributors.</p>

Finland-based&nbsp;Spinnova&nbsp;joins the ZDHC community as it is ready to further scale its patented technology in sustainable textile manufacturing. Spinnova wood-based materials are produced without any harmful chemicals and are quickly biodegradable and&nbsp;fully circular. The firm says its&nbsp;materials&nbsp;create zero waste or side streams, include no microplastics, minimal CO2 emissions and&nbsp;99% less water use than the cotton value chain.

Specialty materials maker&nbsp;Eastman,&nbsp;meanwhile,&nbsp;joined the ZDHC community in December.&nbsp;With Naia, the US firm&nbsp;offers a sustainable fibre choice for womenswear fabrics; its cellulosic fibre is made with sustainably sourced wood pulp, is fully traceable, certified biodegradable, and produced in a closed-loop process where solvents are recycled back into the process for reuse.&nbsp;

Joining Spinnova and Eastman as a ZDHC contributor is&nbsp;IDH &ndash;&nbsp;The Sustainable Trade Initiative which encourages joint investment and collaboration in innovative models to realise long-term solutions for environmentally and socially sustainable production and trade. Headquartered in The Netherlands and funded by different governments and foundations, IDH operates globally in different industry sectors ranging from coffee and tea to cotton and apparel.

Also joining as a 'friend' of ZDHC is&nbsp;BAM Bamboo Clothing. The UK-based company designs and manufactures soft and sustainable bamboo active wear, sold through its e-commerce site and catalogues.
