PANGAIA and GOLDWIN have joined Spiber’s revolutionary “biosphere circulation” program; first demo product to be showcased at the Future Fabrics Expo

June 26, 2023

Spiber’s latest initiative, the biosphere circulation program, presents a pioneering methodology for upcycling biobased and biodegradable textile and agricultural waste through the utilization of its proprietary fermentation technology. The primary objective of this program is to help shift society towards the creation of fully circular textile products that can be regenerated into our Brewed Protein™ material at the end of their lifecycle.

We are pleased to announce that Spiber’s long-term partners Pangaia and Goldwin have joined this program. This collaboration will accelerate the industry-wide adoption of this sustainable approach.

Additionally, our first demonstration product, produced by Goldwin to mark the launch of this project and made to help identify the challenges of producing compliant products designed to be digestible for microbial fermentation, will be revealed at the Future Fabrics Expo in London from June 26 to 28.

We invite industry stakeholders to join the program in order to implement the technologies, infrastructure, and policies required to realize this vision for a circular ecosystem of industrial materials.
