DuPont partners with Wools of New Zealand

DuPont Industrial Biosciences is partnering with Wools of New Zealand (WoNZ) to create a platform of yarns for home textiles that will offer enduring performance characteristics with a more sustainable, eco-friendly profile. The partnership brings together patented technology from WoNZ with DuPont’s leadership in bio-sustainable, high-performance materials.

Bringing together world-leading source traceability and patented technology from WoNZ with DuPont’s global leadership in bio-sustainable, high-performance materials inspired this collaboration of expertise and products, scheduled for release in 2018.

“Wools of New Zealand is truly a leader in responsible wool supply. This level of care, along with their devotion to innovation and quality control is exactly what we at DuPont seek in partners,” said DuPont Sorona global segment leader John Sagrati. “They occupy a premium position in their market and have a proven track record of performance and sustainability with the unique capability to deliver consistent, tailored fibres.”

“We are genuinely excited to partner with DuPont Industrial Biosciences, a business that has been able to bring biomaterials to market on a commercial-scale,” said WoNZ chief executive Rosstan Mazey. “Like us, DuPont is committed to delivering added value innovation without compromising the planet or its inhabitants. The combined resources and know-how in order to create this exciting, brand-new yarn is a perfect fit with our mission to change the game through innovation and to connect the people who grow our fibre with the end consumer.”

DuPont’s industry-leading excellence in the biomaterials industry has received a number of accolades over the past year, including the Platts Global Energy “Breakthrough Solution of the Year” award for a partnership with ADM on a novel process to produce FDME from fructose; Frost & Sullivan’s award for 2017 European Company of the Year Award for bio-based materials; and, most recently, PLASTICS’ 2017 Innovation in Bioplastics Award
