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 (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 from addressing the common need of bio-based chemicals and bio-based synthetic fibres as a technical solution providing the whole community with strengthened competitive advantage.
