Niaga closes materials loop in carpet industry: DSM

“Niaga is taking its promise to close the materials loop in the carpet industry to the next level, following successful tests on industrial scale with leading partners in 2014,” DSM said.

It added, “The JV offers a new perspective on the use of materials, enabling recovery of scarce resources and providing a unique sustainable carpet technology, the first to allow for complete recyclability.”

Under the leadership of the newly appointed general manager, Josse Kunst, DSM-Niaga will focus on the further development and commercialisation of the patented and proprietary technology for the carpet industry.

Carpets based on DSM-Niaga’s innovative technology are fully recyclable, highlighting the company’s commitment to support the sustainability and environmental impact of the carpet industry.

The combination of Niaga fibre binding technology and DSM’s engineered adhesive resin technology allows the manufacture of mono-material (polyester) and duo-material (polyester/polyamide) carpets.

The technology provides the possibility to make waste obsolete, enabling the value chain to create and re-create raw materials from waste.

The exciting potential for the industry to use Niaga technology and set a new standard is reinforced by successful testing of the environmental impact of carpet tiles and broadloom carpets.

Life cycle assessments comparing Niaga to conventional solutions show a reduction of the environmental impact of 40-65 per cent throughout the full lifecycle.

The Niaga fibre binding technology also reduces the energy consumption in carpet production by as much as 95 per cent versus traditional manufacturing processes.

As a further benefit, using DSM’s mono-material polyester adhesive as the mid-layer, enables the polyamide/polyester carpet to meet the most stringent flame retardancy standard.

“This can be done without the need for any additives, while improving on the smoke development performance compared to traditional carpet,” DSM informs.

“Niaga is delivering on its promise to enable the carpet industry to close the materials loop and we have expanded the technology with a good number of new patents,” Chris Reutelingsperger, CTO at DSM-Niaga said.

Norbert van der Nap, chief commercial officer DSM-Niaga opines, “The introduction of the Niaga technology means we can help the carpet sector to realise its goal of fully recyclable carpets with sustainable benefits.” (AR)
