Lignin is a substance that is in the state of waste in the forest industry and the paper industry, which is very much in the nature after cellulose. It is mentioned in the literature that lignin can be extracted as carbon fiber, which is a technical fiber, briefly used as raw material of carbon fiber. Although lignin is such an important area of use, unfortunately it cannot be effectively and adequately assessed, it is destroyed by burning in the heat recovery units in factories. This is how lignin is used in the worst way, leading to environmental problems. Evaluation of the lignin in the study, tensile strength as textile fibers was investigated. 11 lignin solutions and 4 Lignin-Polyvinyl Alcohol blends were formed. Blenders were pulled by electrospinning method, and fiber spinnability was investigated by a method which is similar to fiber spinning method solution to solution. Obtained results are given in table.
