Hyosung Gets GRS Certified

(Filed Under Textiles News). South Korean textile maker Hyosung recently obtained Global Recycled Standard (GRS) certification for its recycled nylon and polyester yarns. These are marketed under the brand names MIPAN, Regen nylon and Regen polyester.

According to the company, Hyosung is the first synthetic fiber company to obtain this certification. It was introduced by the Control Union Worldwide Group’s certifications program to provide validation for claims surrounding recycled products for textiles and clothing.

“We are very pleased to add more credibility to our recycled fibers with this third part certification,” Hyosung’s vice president, B.K. Cho, said. “Now our mill customers and retailers/brands can use them with more confidence.”

MIPAN and Regen are made from 50 percent nylon, which is made from 100 percent post-consumer materials. Regen polyester is made from 100 percent recycled post-consumer polyester. According to the company, during production they reduce CO2 emissions “significantly,” and use a reduced amount of petroleum.
