Polypropylene is a plastic fibre invented by Giulio Natta which also won him the Nobel Prize in 1963.
This component, with its very light structure, has many uses and although it may be a synthetic fibre, it pollutes less than some natural fibres.
This fibre has many uses in addition to textiles, and is intended for various applications: from packaging to automotive components, from technical textiles to fashion accessories.
Many people believe that only natural fibres – because they are produced by nature – are green, but assessing the sustainability of a material requires evaluating many aspects and going through its entire life cycle.
For example, the intensive cultivation of cotton can cause droughts and the excessive use of pesticides heavily pollutes the environment.
Compared to other synthetic fibres, polypropylene fibre requires very low temperatures for production and the materials obtained from it are totally recyclable and can therefore be re-introduced into the production circuit.
