From nature to performance fibre

Creating a more powerful sustainable story, Hyosung has expanded its offering of regen Bio-Based Elastane, replacing nearly all the fibre’s raw materials previously made with petroleum-based resources with 100% renewable resources. The company recently received an independent 3rd party LCA for its expanded offering of regen Bio-Based Elastane.

Hyosung was the first company to commercially introduce USDA and SGS-certified regen Bio-Based Elastane made with 30% renewable resources in 2021, which has been successfully adopted by leading global brands. According to an independent 3rd party LCA, the manufacture of 1kg regen Bio-Based spandex reduces its carbon footprint by 20% as compared to the production 1kg of conventional spandex.

“We are very excited about our expanded regen Bio-Based Elastane offering that further reduces our dependence on fossil fuels and carbon emissions,” said Claire O’Neill, Hyosung Director of European Brand Marketing. “As a comprehensive provider of sustainable textile solutions, our goal is to provide textile options that meet the diverse needs of our mills, brands, and consumers. We take pride in achieving this objective.”
