BANGKOK - Indorama Ventures’ Hygiene Group will present its sustainable suite of recycled and biodegradable polymer solutions for filter media applications, including its latest offering Deja CO2 Neutral Fibers, at this week's Filtech exhibition.
The company’s fully certified carbon neutral brand Deja CO2 Neutral is the latest addition to its innovative Deja range, a carbon neutral solution for PP staple fibres.
Deja CO2 Neutral Fibers come with an independently verified carbon neutral certification of compliance to demonstrate its sustainable production throughout its supply chain. The final carbon footprint is reduced to zero through the use of clean energy, recycled water, low impact transport network and by using carbon credit offsetting for unavoidable emissions.
According to IVL, this certification can facilitate environmentally conscious companies to achieve their ambitious sustainability targets. Through Indorama Ventures’ partnership with South Pole, a leading project developer and provider of global climate solutions, the company is able to offset any unavoidable carbon emissions with carbon offset projects that help to transform lives and protect the planet.
