Industrial processing of renewable raw and residual materials
The AFBW as well as the DITF Denkendorf had invited to the 1st NATURALfiberEXTRACTION congress in Stuttgart at the end of October 2022. The content was about the industrial processing of renewable raw and residual materials.
The aim of the NATURALfiberEXTRACTION congress was to promote sustainable management and to demonstrate solutions for effectively processing plant-based raw materials and residues into fibers for clothing, home textiles, and technical applications. The focus of the congress was on industrialized fiber production, as this is where fiber and textile technology know-how is most urgently needed. In an accompanying exhibition and a start-up and material slam, companies and institutes presented their competencies. Workshops continued to provide opportunities for dialogue and exchange.
FUSE was also on-site and led a workshop on the topic focus Natural Fibers for industrial use cases. Participation in such innovative conferences concerning natural fibers for industrial applications is always a priority for our FUSE team. The exchange with other industry and research experts from other sectors let us learn about new emerging approaches, which in return help us to make FUSE even better.
