Sustainability  

HERON leads the way in minimizing carbon footprint.

Raw Materials

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

Manufacturing HERON fiber from polypropylene is a process with a low impact on the environment 

No Toxic waste

No Toxic emissions

No fluorocarbons

No halogens

Converting

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

Disposal

PP staple fiber has a very high calorific value when incinerated as part of a mixed waste stream, providing a high energy value 

for the amount of CO2 emitted.

It's also clean-burning, with no toxic emissions
