A new sustainable fiber has been created by Bemberg. Cupro from cotton is entirely circular, from the source to processing, and the life cycle of Bemberg’s regenerated cellulose fiber. Completely biodegradable and ecotoxicity-free, bemberg yarns. Yarn fabrics are used as flags for the exhibition and for lining suits and coats of high quality.
The LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) report, signed by ICEA (Istituto per la Certificazione Etica e Ambientale) and validated by the president of Ecoinnovazione Paolo Masoni former research director of ENEA (Ente per le Nuove technologie, l’Energia e l’Ambiente) supports the whole sustainable closed-loop process in Bemberg’s development. While recyclability is granted by the Global Recycle Standard-GRS certification by the renowned Textile Exchange, at the end of their life cycle, yarns break down into the environment, leaving no trace in terms of toxic substances as attested by the Innovhub-SSI report, according to Asahi Kasei.
A special focus deserves Velutine Evo, the new fibrillation finishing technology for Bemberg fabrics only that guarantees another level of sustainable benefits without sacrificing the Bemberg amazing and unique touch. As part of the company’s continuous innovation, Velutine Evo brings better environmental, energy, and water profiles for the benefit of Bemberg partners in the manufacture of their ranges.
The ecological accomplishments of the latest finishing technology were calculated by ICEA’s LCA study and proved to guarantee environmental benefits such as -16.5 per cent greenhouse gas emissions and -21 per cent total energy resource use. In addition, Velutine Evo also means-20,5 per cent of electricity savings,-15,9 per cent of steam generation and-19,5 per cent of water consumption.
