Last month, Nike announced its partnership with Newlight Technologies to tackle PHA-based textile fibers, with the goal of decarbonizing Nike's products and reducing emissions. PHA has been notoriously difficult to commercialize, but especially in apparel and textile applications. Startups like Mango Materials and the now-defunct Bio-on have long tried to commercialize PHA-based textile fibers but have little to nothing to show for their efforts. Now, with the support of Nike, all eyes are on Newlight Technologies to pioneer a PHA-based fiber alternative. Both companies are participating in the Renewable Carbon Textiles Project with Fashion for Good, which aims to push forward the commercialization of PHA melt spinning technology over the next year and a half.
