Discover our approach
Towards a circular chain
Our goal is a fully sustainable and circular aramid chain. The aramid life cycle starts with our production processes and our efforts to reduce energy and raw materials consumption. It continues with our light, strong and durable aramids acting as sustainability multipliers for our customers and end users. And when our aramids have reached end life, we aim to close the chain by recycling our aramids and give them a second life.

Recycling used aramids
Since 2004 we’ve built up one of the world’s most advanced and reputable recycling infrastructures for reclaiming, sorting and transforming used and left-over aramid fibers. We can recover our highest-quality Twaron® fiber and turn it into new high-performance eco-advanced pulp.Read more
Sustainable solutions for customers and end users
Car dashboards, fiber-optic cables, tires, conveyor belts, mooring lines, slings. These are just some of the products that we’ve been able to turn into sustainability multipliers in their respective value chains. We collaborate closely with clients in many industries to develop solutions that not only meet technical requirements but also add environmental and financial value.Read more
Twaron® the sustainability multiplier
Although producing aramids like Twaron® is nowadays still an energy-intensive process. However, they act as sustainability multipliers further along multiple value chains. Light, strong and durable, Twaron® extends the lifespan of dozens of applications and minimizes resource and energy requirements in the use phase. For example, in 2020 we helped prevent more than 255,600 tons of CO2 emissions using Twaron® in tires and conveyor belts.

And finally, to fully close the aramid chain we’re collaborating on the recovery of used aramids so they can be reintroduced as raw materials into our production process.Read more
