Positive carbon footprint for textile production through energy ecosystem

Woodspin is building a new factory in the city of Jyväskylä, Finland, to manufacture wood-based SPINNOVA® textile fibre. The SPINNOVA® fibre has been developed to replace conventionally used textile fibres within the global textile industry.

The only side-product of the environmentally friendly factory is excess heat, which will be utilized in the Alva district heating network. The heat will be upgraded in the AmbiHeat® heat pump plant, after which it replaces district heating energy, otherwise produced by combustion in Jyväskylä.
