The new ‘PlantFiber’ will be extruded from polythylene terephthalate (PET) io-resins derived from raw materials such as sugar cane and will be part of the Teijin ‘Eco Circle’ program. It will be available for a range of textile end uses such as apparel, car seats and interiors to personal hygiene products.
