Hyosung Mipan® Regen™ Yarns Net GRS Certification

South Korea-based Hyosung Corp., manufacturer of creora® spandex, has received Global Recycle Standard (GRS) certification from the Netherlands-based Control Union Certifications for its Mipan® regen™ nylon and regen polyester recycled yarns.

Mipan regen nylon — a 50-percent recycled nylon made from 100-percent post-consumer materials — is the first and only recycled nylon filament yarn constructed from post-consumer material for textile applications, according to Hyosung. Mipan regen polyester is a 100-percent recycled polyester manufactured from 100-percent post-consumer materials. Yarn production using recycled materials significantly reduces carbon dioxide emissions and petroleum use.

Hyosung is the first man-made fiber manufacturer to meet GRS certification requirements. Control Union audited the manufacturing process in Hyosung’s plants — from raw material collection to spinning and texturing — to certify production as well as the resulting materials.

“We are very pleased to add more creditability to our recycled fibers with this third-party certification,” said B.K. Cho, vice president, Hyosung. “Now our mill customers and retailers/brands can use them with more confidence.”
