Nanollose has produced what it believes to be the world’s first plant-free viscose-rayon fibre, Nullabor FibreTM, marking a significant breakthrough for the global textile and clothing industries.
This milestone validates that the Nanollose technology can convert Tree-Free microbial cellulose into a valued commercial fibre product that is similar to Rayon. This gives the Company a large opportunity in being able to offer a sustainable alternative for commonly used tree and plant based fibres that have significant environmental challenges and impacts.
Unlike conventional rayon, Nanollose’s sustainable Tree-Free Nulllarbor FibreTM is derived using microbes that convert liquid biomass waste products from various food industries into microbial cellulose, in a process that takes less than one month and requires very little land, water or energy. The microbial cellulose is then converted into fibres to make Nullarbor FibreTM, using the Nanollose technology that is compatible with existing industrial processing and manufacturing equipment.
