Teijin to launch new bio-polyester fibres in 2012

Friday, 10 December 2010

TOKYO – In April 2012 Teijin Fibers Limited has said that it will start the full production of new plant-derived polyester-based fibres, which will become the company’s core biomaterial going forward and can be fully recycled.

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.
