Lyocell Fibres – A Sustainable Solution?

Organised jointly by:

SCI's London Group and the UCL Chemical and Physical Society

UCL, London

Registration not required

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.


The presentation will firstly cover the way in which lyocell fibres are manufactured at Lenzing, detailing the solvent spinning system and process detail from wood pulp to finished fibres.

Secondly, it will offer a summary of a Life Cycle Analysis study carried by the University of Utrecht that compares cradle to factory gate comparisons of lyocell with other mainstream fibres such as cotton and polyester.

The well- known application of lyocell fibre types is in the field of textiles, specifically apparel. However, the third part of the presentation will cover new and novel industrial applications, for instance replacement of plastics in retail packaging.

Time: 17:45 for 18:15
