The footsteps are big: in 2021, Stora Enso from Sweden won the innovation award, granted on the first day of the "International Conference on Cellulose Fibres".

Second place was taken by Kelheim Fibres (Germany) with their high-quality hygiene products made of cellulose ahead of third place occupant Metsä Spring from Finland that presented a new cellulose fibre production process.
