Beaulieu Yarns, a supplier of high-quality synthetic polyamide and polypropylene yarns headquartered in Belgium, has bagged the Green Product Award 2018 in the material category for its EqoBalance family of biomass-balance yarns. EqoBalance, the first biomass-balance polyamide yarns for carpets, was chosen from a field of 400 submissions from 25 countries.

Around 100 nominees were presented to an international jury which evaluated these entries for their expertise in design, innovation, and sustainability. A total of 24 winners were selected across 12 categories. A public voting for the audience award is being held from July 17 to August 17, 2018.

EqoBalance PA6 yarns follow the biomass balance approach, which ensures that at the very start of the supply chain, natural renewable raw materials replace fossil resources in the production of polymers processed into yarns. The sustainable yarns conform to the TÜV SÜD certification standard CMS 71 ‘Certification of the use of renewable resources’, which confirms the saving in fossil resources. The potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as a result of the replacement of fossil use is calculated in a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). EqoBalance yarns allow a reduction of up to 75 per cent of CO2eq/kg compared to Beaulieu Yarns’ fossil-based products.

Emmanuel Colchen, global sales director, Beaulieu Yarns said, “We are delighted to receive this Green Product Award for the EqoBalance family. These PA6 yarns offer a drop-in alternative solution for carpet manufacturers, delivering the same quality and performance as the fossil-based equivalents, and enabling them to contribute to a sustainable future through less use of fossil resources and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.”

The Green Product Award is an annual international competition for innovative, sustainable products & services in the categories architecture, work, energy, fashion, research, communication, consumer goods, mobility, furniture, and home accessories. The award is aimed at established companies and start-ups. The goal of the award is to create a collection of green solutions for consumers and buyers to replace existing products with better (green) products. (GK)
