NEWSILK, The New Road to Silk: Bio-based production of silk-like materials 2017-2020

Biotechnical production of silk and the engineering of materials properties of silk offers large possibilities for industrial development. Our aim is that silk-like materials, including spider web proteins and other related fibrous proteins, will form a basis for high performance materials in the future.  Our consortium combines three areas: Biotechnology (Aalto CHEM), Polymer Chemistry (Helsinki University) and Art & Design (Aalto ARTS). This combination of groups will develop and strengthen multi- and interdisciplinary research collaboration and lead to new ways of doing science. In our project we integrate the experimental design process in research where biological production and polymer chemistry is used to create new materials that answer to tomorrow’s requirements for materials. Funding comes from Academy of Finland, Biofuture programme 2017-2020.

Waste cotton project visits Shanghai

In February researchers from Aalto got the first ever H&M Global Change Award together with VTT and University of Helsinki (more info at Aalto University web page). The award came together with a one year innovation training program. As a part of that Marjaana Tanttu from FTFutures and Michael Hummel from Aalto Chem were participating a one week workshop in Shanghai.

This really interesting week included visits to H&M production and sales offices, and a factory visit to two Far Eastern Group textile factories, focusing on knitting, dyeing and garment manufacturing. During the week we learned a lot about textile process chain and volume of production in China. Below  is the first half of a factory hall devoted for fabric opening and quality check!
