Spinnova appoints new raw materials specialist

Spinnova is a Finnish wood fibre company that develops ecological breakthrough technology for manufacturing pulp-based textile fibre. Finnish fibre technology company Spinnova has appointed Leena Ruusuvirta as a R&D team specialist as of 1 February 2018. Ms Ruusuvirta will help Spinnova’s team in its raw material development. 

Ms Ruusuvirta joins Spinnova from catalyst manufacturer Dinex Ecocat, where she was a laboratory team leader. Prior to this she has been a research scientist with VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, working with micro fibrillated cellulose that Spinnova also uses as raw material.

According to the company, this recruitment is part of Spinnova’s growth and operational expansion this year. “We are at an exciting growth phase this year, and many events taking place now are taking the Spinnova fibre closer to commercialization. We have also had a chance to recruit a new colleague and welcome Leena to our team,” commented Spinnova CEO Janne Poranen.

Spinnova is a Finnish wood fibre company that develops ecological breakthrough technology for manufacturing pulp-based textile fibre. Spinnova says its patented technology saves water, energy and chemicals, making wood-based textile fibre significantly more ecological than cotton or the current man-made fibres.
