[INQ. NO. 2108C08] In July, 2021, Hyosung TNC, the world’s largest spandex manufacturer, released the results of a new Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) comparing the environmental performance of its 100% recycled creora® regen spandex to its virgin creora spandex.
Since the launch of Hyosung’s creora® regen spandex in January 2020, the company has produced an amount of fiber to offset the number of CO2 emissions equivalent to driving 1,000 times around the globe. Similarly, the production of creora® regen has the greenhouse gas (GHG) absorption impact of enough mature pine trees to cover San Francisco’s Presidio – the world’s largest national park in an urban area spanning nearly 1,500 acres.
Hyosung’s creora® regen spandex is GRS, HIGGS MSI and Oeko-tex certified. The company is in the process of obtaining a material health certificate under the Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Standard.
Hyosung is a comprehensive fiber manufacturer that produces world-class products, providing innovation and solutions to the textile industry. Hyosung’s creora® spandex is the world’s largest spandex brand, supplying the broadest range of stretch fiber offerings supported by exceptional technology and quality.
