Finland recently claimed it is leading the revolution towards sustainable materials and business models in global textile business. The country offers groundbreaking solutions and knowhow at every level of the sustainable textile ecosystem, from waste handling, treatment, sales and usage, collection and recycling to identification and waste handling, it said. The currently available raw materials cannot meet the constantly growing demand for fibres and textiles. At the same time, on a global scale, an estimated 92 mn tonnes of textile waste is produced every year of which 75-85 percent is either burned or ends up in landfills. Leading Finnish firms experts like Rester, NordShield, Emmy, Spinnova and Infinited Fiber Company offer innovations across the textile ecosystem, the government said.
