Fibres & Textiles New

Fibres & Textiles New sustainable fabrics To meet a growing demand for sustainable fashion options, Eastman (Kingsport, Tennessee, USA) and DuPont Biomaterials (headquartered in Wilmington, Delaware, USA) announced in late September the launch of a fabric collection made with sustainable, biobased materials. The collaboration blends Naia from Eastman and DuPont Sorona ® fibers to create garments with exceptional stretch and recovery, luxurious drape and a smooth, soft hand feel [1]. The Eastman Naia cellulosic fiber portfolio of sustainable fibers gives designers more choices and versatility to create. Naia filament yarn transforms fabrics into luxurious, comfortable, and easy-to-care-for fabrics, while Naia staple fiber blends perfectly with other eco-conscious fibers to create supremely soft, quick-drying fabrics that consistently reduce pilling. The cellulose acteate fibers are made with responsibly sourced wood from sustainably managed pine and eucalyptus forests and plantations. Eastman and all wood pulp suppliers hold FSC ® and/or PEFC Chain of Custody certifications [2]. Produced in a safe, closed-loop process where solvents are recycled back into the system for reuse, Naia is made through optimized, low-impact manufacturing. It has a low tree-tofiber environmental footprint and a third-party-reviewed life-cycle assessment compliant with ISO 14044. Naia is also certified as biodegradable in freshwater and soil environments and is compostable in industrial settings, receiving the OK biodegradable and OK compost conformity marks from TÜV AUSTRIA. Most recently, Naia staple fiber received the OK compost certification for home settings. Orange (left: Sorona, yellow (right) Naia (Source: DuPont, Eastman) With a rich history of textile innovation, DuPont’s Sorona brand offers a high-performing, responsibly sourced material option. Fibers made with Sorona polymer are currently used in various apparel applications, including athleisure and athletic wear, insulation, swimwear, outerwear, suiting, faux fur and more. Sorona is a breakthrough, biobased, high-performance polymer (Polytrimethylene terephthalate, PTT, made from 37 % bio based 1,3-propanediol – bio-PDO) offering unique benefits for the apparel industry. Sorona minimizes the impact on the environment without sacrificing quality and performance. It offers unique performance benefits, including incredible softness, stretch and recovery, and inherent stain resistance without the need for topical treatments. Sorona is a USDA certified biobased product and received OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 Certification. “With Naia, we are committed to building a more sustainable fashion industry in collaboration with industry partners. We are very excited to be working with the Sorona team to launch a collection of wonderful fabrics that are a great choice for womenswear fashion. More and more, designers are looking for sustainable fabric choices. And this sustainable fabric collection with biobased, renewable materials showcases that fashion can come without any compromise on beauty, quality or comfort,” said Ruth Farrell, global marketing director of textiles for Eastman. “We believe collaboration is the only way we will deliver on our promises to the textile industry. Our collaboration with Eastman’s Naia branded fibers will allow more apparel brands the opportunity to address tomorrow’s challenges through renewably sourced fiber materials without compromising performance and value. Sustainable fashion is the future, and this new collection is a great example of how you can create stunning designs while caring for our planet,” said Renee Henze, global marketing director at DuPont Biomaterials. Naia Renew Just a week later, Eastman announced the introduction of its new Naia Renew portfolio, sourced from wood pulp and recycled waste plastics. Eastman is using recycled mixed plastics diverted from landfills to make acetic acid which is then combined with wood pulp to create cellulose acetate granules which are comprised of 60 % wood pulp and 40 % recycled content – literally creating value from waste with no degradation in quality. The recycled content is achieved by allocation of recycled plastics through mass balance accounting. Naia Renew cellulosic fiber is traceable with certified biodegradability (see above) that captures the value of hardto-recycle materials that would otherwise be destined for landfills. It can be produced at scale to deliver sustainability without compromise to the fashion world. “Naia Renew enables a circular economy for the fashion industry and helps brands meet their eco-conscious goals,” said Ruth Farrell “We’re transforming what a fabric can be and do to meet the sustainability demands of our customers and to create a world where brands and consumers can be in fashion without compromising on quality and performance.” 36 bioplastics MAGAZINE [06/20] Vol. 15

Fibres & Textiles Welcome to renew the world (Source: Eastman) Fully circular, Naia Renew is produced with a low carbon footprint in a closed-loop process. The fiber is made from wood pulp sourced from certified forests, and the recycled plastics feedstock is generated via Eastman’s patented carbon renewal technology (CRT). CRT is an integrated, molecular recycling technology that breaks down waste plastics, such as post-consumer carpet fiber and plastic packaging materials into basic molecular building blocks for the manufacture of new products including fibers—a truly circular solution creating value from waste [4]. Naia is actively collaborating across the value chain for Naia Renew and will have announcements regarding brand partnerships soon. “Our vision is to make sustainable fashion accessible for everyone,” Farrell added. “We all need to play our parts to help fix the future and work together to protect our planet’s precious resources for the next generations. With Naia Renew, you can take an active role in conserving resources and fostering innovation, while demonstrating a passion for sustainability that resonates with consumers worldwide.” MT References: [1] prnewswire.com/news-releases/eastman-naia-and-dupont-biomaterials-collaborate-to-launch-new-sustainable-fabric-collection-301134986.html [2] N.N.: From Nature to Fashion Eastman Naia cellulosic yarn; Source: tinyurl.com/naia-presentation [3] prnewswire.com/news-releases/eastman-makes-the-promise-of-sustainability-a-reality-with-naia-renew-301139385.html [4] N.N.: New sustainable interior automotive plastic, bioplastics MAGAZINE Vol. 15, issue 01/2020 www.eastman.com | https://sorona.com | https://naia.eastman.com/renew ‘Basics‘ book on bioplastics GRUNDLAGEN.
