Best Product Award at ISPO TEXTRENDS
FENC’s proprietary FENC®TOPGREEN®BIO3 has been recognized with FW23/24 Accelerated Eco Best Product Award at 2022 ISPO TEXTRENDS.
ISPO TEXTRENDS, the Oscars of the global textile industry, is a world-class platform to showcase textile products. During this international event, FENC stood out among over 200 suppliers, grabbing the spotlight with Solution Dye N66 and FENC®TOPGREEN®BIO3, the world’s first polyester material made with carbon capture technology. The innovation won FENC Accelerated Eco Best Product Award, the highest honor from ISPO TEXTRENDS.
The Company also collaborated with LanzaTech, a bio startup, and several apparel brands to capture and transform waste gas from steel plants into polyester material. Manufacturing recycled yarn from waste gas delivers direct benefits in energy conservation and carbon reduction, cutting GHG emissions by 30%. While reducing environmental pollution, this technology in turn minimizes the reliance on fossil fuel and bio-based materials.
In terms of the production process, the Company has incorporated the N66 solution dye process, which skips the water dyeing process. By moving up the solution dyeing process during spinning, the entire production consumes 61% less water, 67% less energy and produces 85% less GHG emissions compared to the conventional dyeing process. This technology allows the dye to fully mix with the fiber during the melting and spinning process, giving the fabrics better color saturation and vibrancy than those produced with conventional methods. In addition to the color performance, better sunlight and washing fastness also contributes to energy reduction.
