Sony has put on display its Triporous Fibre product line at the ongoing ISPO Munich 2020 which concludes on January 29. Triporous is a natural material made from rice husk. It has been developed for the textile and apparel industry. Sony has been conducting joint research as well as product development with various companies using this material.


In October 2019, Sony started trademark licensing of its Triporous Fibre, a product developed for the textile and apparel industry. Following the business launch of Triporous Fibre in Japan, Sony is now starting to expand to the global textile and apparel industries.

Sony is exhibiting for the first time at ISPO Munich 2020, the world's largest sporting and outdoor equipment exhibition.

Triporous is a porous carbon material with a unique microstructure made from rice husk, which is a surplus biomass. In addition to micropores (2 nm or less) found in conventional activated carbon, many mesopores (2 to 50 nm) and macropores (50 nm or more) that are larger than the micropores are present in a complex form. This allows the material to deliver the property of easily adsorbing large molecular weight substances, which was difficult with conventional materials.

This structure also enables high-speed adsorption of low molecular compounds, making Triporous a versatile material for use in various applications such as water and air purification.

Sony aims to support Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with Triporous since it contributes to the creation of a recycling-oriented society by using rice husk waste, that totals 100 million tons worldwide (goal 12). It contributes to water and air purification by making the most of the adsorption characteristics (goals 3, 6, 11), and globally promotes development and commercialisation through open innovation (goal 17)

Sony is now looking for companies interested in using Triporous in their own products or in-house applications, such as in factories. It is also looking to collaborate with companies in the Triporous business, and with research institutions that conduct basic and applied development.
