MELT SPUN FIBRES BASED ON COMPOSTABLE BIOPOLYMERS
FOR APPLICATION IN AUTOMOTIVE INTERIORS

Objective

"The main objective of the research project is to manufacture textile substrates (woven or non-woven) for vehicle interiors from renewable resource-based synthetic fibres from Polylactic Acid derivatives that can be used as a substitute for the polyester fibres that are currently used. These biofibres must fulfil the same requirements that the fibres used at the moment including thermal resistance.
The growing importance of environmental aspects in recent years, coupled with greater public awareness, is driving the development of new yarns and textile structures from within the textile industry.
The possibility of using fibres from renewable resources and which are also easily biodegradable will be useful for the vehicle interior textile industry, both from the point of view of the strict new recycling regulations that these products must meet and the properties offered by this type of fibre."
