  • Trevira to exhibit sustainable innovations at Techtextil 2019
    Mon 27, 2019
  • Trevira GmbH, the specialist for functional fibres and yarns, will be exhibiting its products for a wide range of technologies and applications in the area of technical and functional textiles at Techtextil 2019 in India. Trevira will appear at Techtextil 2019 together with other exhibitors owned by parent company Indorama Ventures. Sustainability will play a key part in Trevira’s display and across the entire Indorama joint fair booth, which will reveal a number of new developments.
    Trevira GmbH has worked with its customers to develop a variety of new products based on biopolymers, currently a huge topic for sustainable textiles.
    One sustainable product to be viewed at the fair will be a pillow by our Portuguese customer Carlos Manuel Salgado Costa, Ltd. (Analar®). The filling for the pillow consists of 95 per cent biopolymer PLA. PLA fibres from sustainable raw materials offer a sustainable alternative to petroleum-based fibres, and PLA is recyclable and 100 per cent biodegradable with industrial composting. Because of its sustainability, this pillow has qualified for our Sinfineco brand, only awarded to sustainable Trevira products.
