WILMINGTON - The Lycra Company has announced it has entered into an agreement with bio materials company Qore to enable the first large-scale commercial production of bio-derived spandex.

Producing Lycra fibre using Qira, Qore's next generation 1,4-butanediol (BDO), as one of its main ingredients could potentially reduce its carbon footprint by up to 44 per cent, according to the company.

Lycra says it means that as much as 70 per cent of the fibre content will be derived from annually renewable feedstock, with no impact on performance.
