Sorona® Fiber


Sorona® is a renewably sourced biopolymer for carpet and apparel produced from a glucose fermentation process.

A breakthrough addition to biopolymer solutions, Sorona® allows mills and designers to combine the benefits of renewability without sacrificing the need for a versatile material that offers high performance and design freedom across applications.

Sorona is produced from a glucose (sugar) fermentation process which yields a bio-based PDO(1,3-Propanediol). This biopolymer is used in residential and commercial carpets, apparel and automotive mats and carpets.

Example Applications:

  • Residential and commercial carpets
  • Apparel
