DuPont™ Sorona® and Carpet Recycling
Knowing the important role carpet recycling plays in helping the environment, DuPont research has proven that face fiber made with DuPont™ Sorona® can be shaved from the carpet backing, turned into pellets, and spun into new fiber. In fact, there are even more potential ways to recycle carpet made with Sorona®.

Triexta, Generic in Name Only
Specific performance benefits, including stain resistance, are so unique to DuPont™ Sorona®, the U.S. FTC gave the generic name triexta to homo fibers made from PTT, the Sorona® renewably sourced polymer.
A Strong Legacy in Fiber Technology
Since the early 1900's, DuPont has been a world leader in polymer and fiber technology. DuPont™ Sorona® renewably sourced fiber is the latest innovation that delivers environmental benefits without sacrificing performance.
Sorona® contains up to 37% annually renewable plant based ingredients by weight (28% biobased carbon)
