Asahi Kasei Exhibits At Ispo Munich 2023


Asahi Kasei Exhibits At Ispo Munich 2023 

Asahi Kasei will exhibit its solutions for a more  sustainable material life cycle in the sportswear industry at ISPO Munich 2023, the leading  international sports trade fair, from November 28 to November 30 in Munich, Germany. Dis plays include a novel manufacturing technology for synthetic fibers and textiles from bio mass feedstock, the ECOSENSOR fabric collection by Asahi Kasei Advance, ROICA premium stretch fiber, and RespiGard, a PFAS and solvent-free waterproof membrane. 

A sustainable material life cycle starts with the production of raw materials. For the first time at ISPO,  Asahi Kasei will showcase its novel process technology to produce biobased basic chemicals from  bioethanol. This breakthrough technology makes it possible to manufacture most synthetic fibers and  plastics from biomass feedstock, including those that had been considered difficult to manufacture  from raw materials other than petroleum. This technology enables reduced CO2 emissions and  petroleum usage.

Grades from the ROICA Eco-Smart family will also be displayed in a designated area of the booth.  ROICA EF is a recycled stretch fiber which features 58% pre-consumer recycled content, and is  certified to OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 in the product class 1 category. ROICA V550 is a  degradable yarn which decomposes into CO2 and water, and has obtained a C2C (cradle-to-cradle)  Certified Material Health Certificate.  

RespiGard is a unique lightweight membrane designed for apparel with the optimal combination of  waterproofness and breathability. The membrane is produced using a solvent-free manufacturing  process with a low carbon footprint. The polypropylene material is recyclable and PFAS-free*. Outdoor  sportswear and coats utilizing RespiGard have won numerous awards, including the 2021  Performance Days Performance Award and the 2019 and 2020 Outdoor Retailer’s Innovation Awards. 

To contribute to closing the material life cycle in the sportswear and apparel industry, Asahi Kasei and  partner company Microwave Chemical are currently developing a new chemical recycling process for  polyamide 66. The process utilizes microwaves to depolymerize polyamide 66 and directly obtain the  monomers, which can then be used to manufacture new polyamide 66 for apparel. Asahi Kasei will  describe this process at a presentation on November 29 from 11:30–12:00 at Munich Trade Fair  Center, Hall B1, Pink Stage. 

Be sure to visit Asahi Kasei’s ISPO exhibit in Hall B1, Future Lab Brand New Area: Booth 104.
