Metsä Group to launch pre-study for first commercial mill producing Kuura textile fiber

HELSINKI, March 26, 2024-

Metsä Group will launch a pre-study for the first commercial mill producing the Kuura textile fibre. Kuura is one of the spearhead projects of Metsä Group’s innovation company Metsä Spring. The goal is to increase the refinement of pulp sustainably and efficiently.

Produced from softwood pulp, the Kuura textile fibre is a new material developed by Metsä Group, in which Finnish wood is converted into a sustainable product with high added value – without fossil fuels. The textile fibre has been researched and developed at the Äänekoski demo plant, among other places. The new pre-study is the first planning stage of a potential commercial mill project.
