DuPont Sorona, renewably sourced fibre by DuPont Industrial Biosciences has been recognised as a runner-up for the fibre producer of the year by the World Textile Awards. The first independent global awards competition, the World Textile Awards, are mainly dedicated for recognising and rewarding excellence across the global textile industry.

The companies, which participated in the competition were assessed based on their market position, technical performance, environmental and sustainability practices, quality control as well as the employee programmes.

Renee Henze, global marketing manager, DuPont Biomaterials said, “Sorona is an illustration of DuPont Industrial Biosciences’ commitment to developing and delivering exceptional products that benefit every level of the supply chain. This honour underscores the combination of eco-innovation, performance and function by Sorona that can truly transform the textile industry and play a critical role in reducing its environmental footprint, without compromising on product quality.”

Sorona is obtained from renewably sourced plant-based ingredients, permitting decreased dependence on fossil fuels and reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. Apart from sustainability, Sorona also offers unique performance benefits including: superior softness, unmatched durability and inherent stain resistance without the need for topical treatments. Sorona can be used alone as a multipurpose fibre or combined with synthetic or natural fibres for different benefits and endless options. It is one of the first 11 products, that are approved to use the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) new product label on certified bio-based products. It also received Oeko-Tex standard 100 certification, which is the most stringent class 1 certification.

DuPont has been bringing world-class science and engineering to the global marketplace in the form of innovative products, materials, and services since its establishment 1802. The firm believes that they can help find solutions to global challenges such as providing enough healthy food for people everywhere, decreasing dependence on fossil fuels along with protecting life and the environment by collaborating with customers, governments, NGOs and thought leaders.(PA)
