The case for sustainable aramid production is clear. Society needs the performance that our aramids deliver. At the same time, it needs those aramids to be produced in a way that minimizes their impact on the environment. At Teijin Aramid, we are crystal clear about what that means for us. Our aramid production needs to produce zero waste and be CO2 neutral. The Research and Innovation Center in Arnhem, the Netherlands has been successfully running yarn to yarn recycling trials, adding end-of-life aramid yarn into the yarn spinning process again in order to avoid as much virgin raw material as possible. We have now started application testing of this physically recycled Twaron.
