DuPont’s renewably sourced fiber Sorona has been chosen runner-up for Fiber Producer of the Year by the World Textile Awards.
Sorona is an illustration of DuPont’s commitment to developing and delivering exceptional products that benefit every level of the supply chain. Sorona is derived, in part, from renewably sourced plant-based ingredients, allowing for a decreased dependence on fossil fuels and reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. In addition to sustainability, it offers unique performance benefits including superior softness, unmatched durability and inherent stain resistance without the need for topical treatments. As a multipurpose fiber, it can be used alone or combined with synthetic or natural fibers for different benefits and endless options.
World Textile Awards are dedicated to recognizing and rewarding excellence across the global textile industry. Companies are assessed on their market position, technical performance, environmental and sustainability practices, quality control and employee programs.
DuPont has been bringing world-class science and engineering to the global marketplace in the form of innovative products, materials, and services since 1802. The company believes that by collaborating with customers, governments, NGOs, and thought leaders it is possible to help find solutions to such global challenges as providing enough healthy food for people everywhere, decreasing dependence on fossil fuels, and protecting life and the environment.
