Du polyester et de l’élasthanne biosourcés seront synthétisés d’ici 2016 dans le cadre du programme de recherche européen Ecolastane, financé à hauteur de 2,8 millions d’euros. Ces fibres pourront s’adapter aux procédés de fabrication textile actuels. Les biopolymères seront obtenus à partir du même dérivé de la lignocellulose, le furfural. Celui-ci donnera deux intermédiaires, le tétrahydrofurane, d’une part, utilisé pour la synthèse de la fibre d’élasthanne, et l’hydroxyméthylfurfural, par ailleurs, intermédiaire de la production de polyester. L’objectif d’Ecolastane est de…

The steep growth of emerging economies like China, India or Brazil is leading to availability problems and price fluctuations, translated into our T/C companies facing huge cost increases. It is ever more necessary to become sustainable and efficient by promoting feedstock…

EcoLASTANE is a project put forward by three European SME Associations: TECHTERA (Technical Textiles Rhône-Alpes, France); AMIQ (Asociación Murciana de Industrias Químicas, Spain); and CZ Biom (CZ Biom – Czech Biomass Association, Czech Republic). We share a common value chain connecting final textile fibres (Textile and Clothing industry) with its starting bio-materials (biomass SME companies) through the intermediate transformation of bio-materials to bio-based synthetic fibres (Chemicals industry). EcoLASTANE has been designed to overcome the technical obstacles preventing our value chain…
