ByNature is the industry-first premium Nylon 6.6 for textiles and apparel using biogas to reduce fossil raw materials. A first for the fashion and sportswear industry, SENSIL® ByNature gives environmentally conscious consumers a meaningful way to help reduce carbon footprint while keeping exactly the same comfort, performance, and longevity that they expect and get today from SENSIL®.
SENSIL® ByNature is produced through the Biomass Balance approach, which was pioneered by BASF for use of renewable materiais in the process. Compared to conventional Nylon yarn made from fossil feedstock, in this approach renewable resources such as bio-gas derived from organic waste is used as a feedstock in the very first steps of the production process. The bio feedstock amount is then allocated to specific products sold by means of the certified method.
The technology considerably improves a garment’s Product Carbon Footprint and takes the apparel industry closer to a more sustainable position.
Retains all the performance and appearance advantages of SENSIL® premium Nylon while lowering CO2 deposits in the atmosphere and reducing dependence on fossil feedstock.
Incredibly soft and remarkably strong for long-lasting fabrics that will remain like new for years.
Exceptionally durable and wear-resistant products can be repurposed and recycled for additional contributions to textile sustainability and circularity.
SENSIL® ByNature is ISCC+ certified. The ISCC+ system is a globally applicable independent sustainability certification program that confirms the controlled use of renewable feedstocks throughout a supply chain. The ISCC+ system verifies the origin of the renewable feedstocks in SENSIL® ByNature. to offer brands and retailers a high-quality foundation for more ecologically responsive apparel designs.
SENSIL® ByNature yarns are certified as not harmful to human health according to Oeko-Tex standards.
