The Courtaulds, UK, Genesis solvent spun cellulose process was not developed primarily for nonwovens production, but the company is emphasing how the process fits well with thermal bonding, hydroentanglement and latex bonding nonwovens technology. Courtaulds states that more possibilities of developing special fibres for nonwovens do exist.

This must have been at the time the problems with fibrillation in textile processing were slowing down development of the yarn/fabric route.  Maybe this also accounted for the relative PR silence in 1987.  Comments from those involved on the textile side would be valuable.
