Commercialization

The textile industry consumes a huge amount of natural resources. At the same it presents great opportunities for new business for people who want to make a change. If you’re interested in investing in a sustainable, high quality textile technology, look no further! Ioncell is the answer.

Roadmap for commercialization

Ioncell roadmap

So far we are publicly funded. We intend to launch Ioncell’s spin-off company in spring 2019 for which we’ll open a first funding round for private investors at the Nordic’s biggest startup event Slush in December 2018.

Within a couple of years we plan to open a pilot plant, a small factory where we can produce textiles for our customers to test. Later on we'll strive to open a demonstration plant where even more Ioncell fibers can be produced.

Let's collaborate! Contact us:
