A Breakthrough, Versatile, High-Performance Ecofiber
DuPont™ Sorona® renewably sourced fiber is proof of our commitment to create innovative solutions that help reduce dependence on fossil fuels and reduce CO2 emissions.
A breakthrough addition to ecofiber solutions, Sorona® allows mills and designers to combine the benefits of sustainability without sacrificing the need for a versatile material that offers high performance and design freedom across applications.
A leading ecofiber, Sorona® contains 37 percent annually renewable plant-based ingredients. Even better is its environmental footprint. Producing Sorona® uses 30 percent less energy and releases 63 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions compared to the production of nylon 6. Compared to nylon 6,6 Sorona® uses 40% less energy and reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 56%.
Sorona® polymer is used in residential and commercial carpets, apparel and automotive interior fabrics and carpets. Sorona® has the highest bio-based content in the synthetic carpet fiber market and offers durability and stain resistance.
As one of the first high-performance fibers derived from rapidly renewable material rather than petroleum, Sorona® continues the impressive record of textile innovation from DuPont.
The Sorona® material is also available as Sorona® EP, a thermoplastic polymer used for automotive parts and other products.
