Sustainability at acrylic fibers producer Dralon

Sustainability is one of the essential guiding principles that Dralon GmbH and its employees follow – on an ecological, economic, social and cultural level. Here we see responsibility for the future of the community as a basis for long-term growth and secure livelihoods.

Above all the protection of our environment is of paramount importance for the company.

That's why Dralon produces synthetic fibers under the most advanced and gentle conditions, which contribute to the solution of environmental problems.

Because for the production of a ton of dralon acrylic fiber, only five cubic metres of water are needed. Significantly less than for the cultivation of natural fibers. And the emissions balance is also pretty impressive. This is demonstrated by the carbon footprint compiled only earlier this month by the independent consulting firm Systain Consulting in accordance with ISO 14040 / ISO 14044 showing a CO2 balance which is significantly below the international industry average (see also comparison Boustead study: Boustead & 1. Stockholm Environment Institute, 2. Agribusiness Group, 3. Cargill).

The favourable emissions balance results from the CO2-efficient production of the two main preliminary products and, in particular, from the energy-efficient production at Dralon as certified by the German Society for Quality (DQS) according to § 41 para. 1 no. 4 of the Renewable Energy Act (EEG) 2009. Here the supply of energy from low-emission fuels such as natural gas has a positive affect. Furthermore, Dralon GmbH works continuously on improvements in the areas of logistics and packaging, which will also benefit our environment.

“Dralon GmbH focuses all its business and production processes on the implementation of sustainable solutions. Thus, it makes a continuous contribution to the preservation and consistent improvement of our living environment. In the long term, this creates values for generations to come.” - Stefan Braun (CEO), Dieter Heinkes, Giovanni Verzoletto,
Management, Dralon GmbH

Dralon GmbH with its German locations Dormagen and Lingen is renowned worldwide as a recognized manufacturer of acrylic fibers. Innovation, consistent product optimization and reliability in service and supply have made dralon the market leader in acr ylic fibers despite the increasing competition. With a total capacity of 188,000 tons p.a. in our german plants we cover the whole product range in the area of dry-spun and wet-spun fibers including modern microfiber- and no-pill-types.
