NatureWorks LLC and Trevira GmbH jointly announced that Trevira of Bobingen, Germany, one of the world's leading producers of high-quality branded polyester fibers and filament yarns, now holds a master license to manufacture Ingeo fibers. The rationale for this new partnership was first discussed at the EDANA International Nonwovens Symposium, held in Milan.

“Because of its technical expertise, exemplary reputation, capability to shorten time-to-market for custom products, and range of product offerings, Trevira is the ideal company to provide Ingeo fibers to a diverse base of European Union fabric producers, converters, and brand owners,” said Eamonn Tighe, NatureWorks European business manager for fibers and nonwovens.

“Expanding our portfolio of product offerings with a cost-competitive and versatile fiber like Ingeo is both a growth strategy and the next step in our company's sustainability journey,” said Günter Wittmann, Trevira's director of sales and marketing, staple fibers.

“The close cooperation with NatureWorks fits perfectly into our strategy of offering specialty and customized fibers. Leadership in quality and product development relies heavily on strong partnerships.”

Ingeo is made from renewable plant materials, not oil, emitting up to 85 percent less greenhouse gas and requiring up to 69 percent less energy to manufacture into resin when compared to traditional polymers. Ingeo biopolymer not only lowers the carbon footprint of products and components, but it also offers exceptional performance capabilities.

Tighe said that in the past 18 months, NatureWorks has seen significant interest among European Union converters, brand owners, and retailers in locally sourced, low-carbon footprint fibers and nonwovens for apparel, household, technical textiles, and personal care products. He said this new relationship with such a reputable company as Trevira further confirms NatureWorks' commitment to the fibers and nonwovens sector within the European Union.

NatureWorks LLC is a company dedicated to meeting the world's needs today without compromising the earth's ability to meet the needs of tomorrow. NatureWorks LLC is the first company to offer a family of commercially available, low-carbon footprint Ingeo biopolymers derived from 100 percent annually renewable resources with performance and economics that compete with oil-based plastics and fibers.

Trevira GmbH, Germany, is an innovative European manufacturer of high-value branded polyester fibre and filament specialties for the home textiles, apparel and automotive industries as well as for hygiene and technical applications. Production operations are located in Germany and Poland. The company is committed to sustainable development, both in production and in the further processing of its products.
