DSM, Niaga Collaborate On Recyclable Carpet Technologies

The Netherlands-based life sciences and materials sciences company Royal DSM and Niaga, a Netherlands-based sustainable carpet solutions provider, have created a joint venture company called DSM-Niaga to perfect and commercialize recyclable carpet technologies. The sustainable carpet systems, featuring Niaga’s carpet fiber binding technology and DSM’s engineered polyester lamination adhesives, will help carpet manufacturers close the carpet materials loop and reduce the amount of carpet sent to landfills or incinerators. The fully recyclable DSM-Niaga carpet systems are mono-material featuring polyester, or duo-material featuring polyester and polyamide.
“In DSM we found a strong and reliable partner to speed up the development — currently commercial scale — and market this technology globally,” said Norbert can der Nap, cofounder, Niaga. “The DSM-Niaga technology is latex-free, and provides a carpet manufacturing company with the possibility of creating and recreating raw materials from waste.”
“Next to this important sustainability aspect, the final product and production process provide many benefits for the different players in the carpet value chain, and can easily be integrated into current production processes,” added Chris Reutelingsperger, inventor and co-founder, Niaga.
