Melt Blown Cellulose (Lyocell) from Reicofil system

Dr Horst Ebeling of the Fraunhofer Institute (Germany) introduced the first fruits of the collaboration between Weyerhaeuser, Reicofil and his Institute to develop a process for making melt-blown lyocell. Some photos taken at his talk in Rudolstadt (TITK - 2006 Alternative Cellulose Conference) follow:
