Goldwin Play Earth Fund invests in Infinited Fiber Company, which collects and recycles cellulose fiber


Goldwin Play Earth Fund (hereafter “GW-PEF”), co-managed by Goldwin Venture Partners Inc. (hereafter “GVP”) and Ignition Point Venture Partners Inc. (hereafter “IGP-VP”), is pleased to announce that it has made an investment in Infinited Fiber Company Oy (Headquarters: Espoo, Finland; CEO: Petri Alava; hereafter “Infinited”), which operates a cellulose fiber recycling business.

Infinited owns technology to produce a virgin-quality, brand-new, feel-like-cotton fiber called Infinna™ from collected post-consumer-textiles rich in cellulose, such as cotton.

Currently, the majority of clothing sold is eventually disposed of and/or incinerated without recycling. On the other hand, growing cotton, a widely used fiber material for apparel textiles, consumes a large amount of water and chemicals, and its environmental impact needs to be addressed. Infinited owns technology to produce virgin-quality, cotton-like fiber recovered from used clothing rich in plant-based cellulose fibers. The Infinited core technology is based on the results of research conducted by VTT Technical Research Center of Finland.

GVP and IGP-VP decided to invest in Infinited upon recognizing the excellence of the company with its technology to help realize circularity and sustainability required in the apparel/fashion industry, as well as its expanding supply chains in collaboration with post-consumer-textile collection businesses and multiple global apparel brands.

This investment is an opportunity to promote collaboration between Infinited and Goldwin to accelerate our efforts to help realize a circular system for the Japanese textile industry.

Comment by Petri Alava, CEO of Infinited Fiber

“It is fantastic to have these impactful companies onboard as our new investors. This investment is crucial for further advancing the scale-up of Infinna™, and it underscores the industry’s confidence in our technology as one of the key enablers for circularity in the textile sector"
