Natural Fiber Welding, Inc. (NFW®) is revolutionizing the materials industry. We develop technologies based on the sustainable use of plants and natural fibers to create beautiful, durable goods and textiles. Our technologies broaden the spectrum of what is possible from nature’s strength and diversity.
At NFW, our mission is to be stewards of material abundance, helping all of humanity prosper. We design with efficient supply chains in mind that make use of renewable resources and waste feedstocks. Using NFW’s scientific breakthroughs, we enable natural fibers to be shaped and molded at the molecular level in order to unlock performance previously only possible using synthetics from fossil resources.
We believe the best way to serve people is through mutual respect, including respect for our shared environment. NFW was founded in 2015 and is based in Peoria, Illinois. To learn more, please visit: www.naturalfiberwelding.com.
