One of ADVANSA's key values guiding the development of new products is environmental protection; reducing the environmental impact of the company's activities with environmentally responsible strategies and industrial procedures, to develop eco-friendly products. ADVANSA´s new ECO2 offers to consumers a more eco-responsible option by using fibre technologies that leave a lower CO2 footprint.
To meet consumer's demand for technically advanced garments that are also environmentally friendly, ADVANSA offers fibres and yarns that leave a lower CO2 footprint. By using less crude oil, ECO2 helps to reduce the impact on the environment. With its lower CO2 footprint, ECO2 brings us one step closer to building a sustainable economy, without compromising technical thermoregulation performance.
Depending on the product type different eco-friendly technologies have been used. For filament yarns ADVANSA continues with the highly successful PTT polymer made using renewable resources such as corn sucrose. Staple fibres are made using sophisticated recycling technology, whereby polymer based on post consumer PET is transformed through state-of-the-art manufacturing process into the same highquality polyester fibre. Whatever the option, ECO2 means a lower CO2 footprint without compromising excellent moisture management and outstanding wearing comfort.
“As an eco-responsible company, we are committed to develop products which respect the environment. In response to the growing demand for eco-friendly products, the technological innovation of ADVANSA 's ECO2 offers to our customers not only superior quality and high-end fabrics with outstanding thermoregulating performance characteristics but also a more environmentally friendly choice” said Gerard Illeras, Global ASW Market Manager.
To make consumers aware of our product's ecological benefits, ADVANSA will provide to the garment makers an additional exclusive ECO2 logo and hangtag to be added to the standard hangtag.
