Insights

  • Kolon Industries showed carbon reduction tech and eco-friendly items at Techtextil, including aramid innovations and recycled water bottle textiles.
  • Plans include boosting aramid pulp production efficiency and cutting carbon emissions.
  • It aims for stronger ties with European and North American markets, particularly in flooring and automobile interiors.

Kolon Industries, top chemical materials and textile maker in South Korea, has proposed a sustainable future through the presentation of carbon reduction technologies and eco-friendly products, at the ongoing Techtextil.

At the international exhibition, Kolon Industries shared innovative use cases of aramid with customers. Last year, the company actively implemented digital transformation within the production process when expanding its aramid production to 15,310 tonnes. Realisation of faster deliveries, optimised quality controls and energy monitoring led to lower carbon emissions and increased customer value. Furthermore, the company plans to enhance its aramid pulp production energy efficiency and manufacture products with 30 per cent fewer carbon emissions, through its production expansion to 3,000 tonnes in the second half of this year. Aramid pulp is manufactured by cutting and grounding aramid yarn.

Sustainable products made from recycled water bottles will also be exhibited. PET non-woven spunbond is expanding its market share in Europe for carpet applications by achieving global eco-friendly certifications such as GRS and EPD. PET leather prioritises eco-friendliness accredited by GRS and OEKO-TEX, a European certification system demonstrating zero harm to the environment and humans. Through these products, Kolon claims to increase connections with customers in the European and North American market for flooring and automobile interior materials, the company said in a press release.

"Techtextil is a good opportunity to showcase our various textile technologies in the global market," said chief operating officer Choi Yoeng-baeg. "The European market is especially driving eco-friendly transitions and we will actively demonstrate our sustainable technologies."
