Woodspin, the joint venture of the sustainable textile material company Spinnova and its strategic partner, pulp company Suzano, is proceeding with its factory project in central Finland according to the original schedule. The production spaces are expected to be ready for technology installations at the end of next summer, and for the factory to be completed by end of 2022.
The factory complex will include Spinnova’s and Suzano’s joint venture Woodspin’s fiber production, Suzano Finland’s micro-fibrillated cellulose (MFC) refining, as well as Spinnova’s headquarters and some of its product development functions.
Spinnova has also designed the factory’s energy solutions to ensure a low emission facility that runs on 100 percent renewable energy and recovered heat energy. In addition, the factory is planned to transfer excess energy back into the district heating network.
