Value Chain Stage: Man-Made Fibers

Manufactured fibers can be cellulosic (artificial fibers), or they can be synthetic. Manufactured cellulosic fibers are derived from raw materials such as trees or plants that make cellulose. Rayon, acetate, and lyocell are the primary artificial fibers. Synthetic manufactured fibers are produced from chemicals made from refined petroleum or natural gas. The main synthetic fibers are polyester, nylon, acrylic, polyolefin, and spandex.
