CollectiveCrunch joins Digital Fiber Initiative. The Digital Fiber Initiative was founded by VTT of Finland, Siemens and Spinverse to help drive the digitisation of the forestry industry.
The Digital Fiber challenge:
“New digital business from data and wood fiber process innovation. The companies in the forestry industry (including pulp & paper) are facing a dramatic upheaval. The demand for traditional paper – for example, for newspapers or office use – is declining about five percent annually worldwide, while the demand for fiber products continues to grow. What’s needed is methods and process innovations by which new materials could be produced from wood fibers.” In short and by way of example: Threads and cloth made from wood fibers instead of cotton and synthetic materials.
CollectiveCrunch’s analytics platform can aid this process by gaining deep insights into the production process and supplied materials. Producing threaded materials from wood fiber requires deeper process insights and better control of the production process. CollectiveCrunch is excited to contribute to Digital Fiber’s ambitious initiative.
