AGRI-WASTE

PYRATEX® bio fabrics are made with PLA, a bio-based fiber formed by the polymerization of lactide, and extracted from post-industrial biological waste. Contrary to other polymers, no chemicals or petroleum are used in the process.

PLA is made with corn, cassava, sugar cane or beet agricultural waste, following these certifications: The International Sustainability and Carbon Certification and European Institute Eurofins Genescan. These ensure it is harvested in a naturally grown agriculture without genetically modified materials.

 

Our PLA is harvested from crops grown for the animal feed industry. We use the starch to make PLA, while the proteins are used for food, avoiding any shortcomings.

This fiber's manufacturing produces approximately 80% less greenhouse gases than that of traditional polymers: our PLA produces 0.62 kg of CO2 per kg, whereas PVC produces 2.42 kg of CO2 per kg.
