Kuura is a Metsä Spring’s textile fibre project that aims to develop and demonstrate the feasibility of a new environmentally-friendly concept, in which paper-grade pulp is converted into a novel Kuura textile fibre (lyocell-type staple fibre). Kuura offers a responsible alternative to various end uses in the world of textiles, without compromising environmental sustainability or product quality.
Metsä Spring has a broad presence in various R&D projects related to wood-based textile fibres. One of such projects is the GRETE project co-funded by the Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking (also known as CBE JU).
