You need to know about
HERON leads the way in minimizing carbon footprint.
Of the major synthetic fibers, Heron's fiber is the only one that is created as a by-product
with lower greenhouse gas emissions and lower energy use than other fiber resins.
Manufacturing HERON fiber from polypropylene is a process with a low impact on the environment
No Toxic waste
No Toxic emissions
The manufacture of products from PP staple fiber has low environmental impact
- Low melting point reduces the amount of energy needed to create products
- Low moisture pickup requires less energy to dry products
- No Toxic emissions or wastes
Use in Product Manufacturing
PP fiber has many properties that contribute to sustainable use. PP fiber is
- Chemically inert, so it doesn't break down with harmful effects on health or the environment
- Low in density, so less of it is needed than other fibers to make products
- Durable, so products using it can last longer and don't need rapid replacement
- Easily cleaned without high energy or environmentally unfriendly methods
PP staple fiber has a very low calorific value when incinerated as part of a mixed waste stream, providing a low energy value
for the amount of CO2 emitted.
It's also clean-burning, with no toxic emissions
