DuPont™ Sorona® Nets Oeko-Tex® 100 Certification

DuPont™ Sorona® partially bio-based polymer, developed by DuPont Industrial Biosciences, Wilmington, Del., has received Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 Class 1 certification that it is free of dangerous levels of harmful substances.

"Sorona is one of the first bio-based textile polymers to demonstrate highly desirable technical and life cycle advantages for a wide range of products from apparel to carpets," said Dr. Sam Moore, who represents Oeko-Tex in North America.
