About 20% of our global fresh water and cropland area go to cellulose fiber cultivation for textiles instead of food.
Inefficient use of land and water resources, deforestation and contaminating treatments are a growing problem with a growing demand derives from the textile industry.
Using Shelltex DP technology instead of trees or cotton will provide a cheaper cost saving and sustainable alternative raw material from crop residuals that can save about 3Bn$ to the cellulose fiber market.
Shelltex DP is a low-cost Dissolving Pulp [DP] process that extracts pure cellulose from residual crop for the textile industry.
