Invista’s introduction of bio-derived Lycra spandex represents a major development for one of its core products and a larger commitment to sustainability throughout its manufacturing processes and product mix.
Invista, one of the world’s largest integrated producers of polymers and fibers, spent about 18 months developing the new spandex fiber that now includes a renewable source made from dextrose derived from corn that makes up 70 percent of the weight of the fiber, explained Arnaud Tandonnet, Invista Apparel’s global sustainability director.
