Superbase-based ionic liquids (ILs) have demonstrated excellent dissolution capability for cellulose, and employing the dry-jet wet spinning process, high-tenacity regenerated textile fibers have been made. Among a range of superbase-based ILs, [mTBDH][OAc] exhibited not only good spinnability but also exceptional recyclability, making it highly suitable for a closed-loop production of regenerated cellulose fibers. To further optimize the spinning process, we investigated the influence of the cellulosic raw materials and the IL with residual water on spinnability and fiber properties. In addition, single-filament spinning and multifilament spinning using spinnerets with different hole densities were investigated to reveal the upscaling challenges of the dry-jet wet spinning process. The air gap conditions, for example, temperature and moisture concentration were simulated using COMSOL multiphysics. The results indicate that the presence of a small amount of water (3 wt%) in the IL has a positive effect on spinnability, while the mechanical properties of the fibers remain unchanged.
