Executive Summary: New LCA Study Compares 10 Fiber Sources

Oct 16, 2017

This Life Cycle Assessment evaluates the life cycle impacts of manmade cellulose fibers (MMCF), derived from ten different sources. Five different material feedstocks – wood from different forest regions, bamboo pulp, cotton linter, flax by-products, recycled clothing – were examined, with supply chains stretching across four continents. This study is the first to analyze and compare impacts associated with fibers from different locations, different supply chains, and manufactured using different mill technologies.
