Hyosung Captures Bio-Based Seminar on Video – From Nature to Performance Fiber

Last fall, we attended ISPO Munich 2022, the largest international fair for the sports business and conducted a standing room only seminar highlighting our new creora® bio-based spandex. Claire O’Neill, Hyosung European Marketing Manager, and Patrick Van Waes, PDO Global Marketing Director, CovationBio, presented an interesting discussion on the growing importance of bio-derived materials.

“While recycled fibres have made great strides in the development of sustainable materials, there is a need to add diversity to the textile fibre market, said O’Neill. “By replacing petroleum-based raw materials with renewable corn-based feedstock, Hyosung’s new  USDA and SGS-certified creora® bio-based elastane lowers the carbon footprint and reduces reliance on non-renewable resource – complementing the company’s rich portfolio of recycled sustainable solutions

For those who were unable to attend, or those who might want to see again, we hope you enjoy the lively scenes of our seminar.
