Evolon nonwovens provide sustainability benefits over the packaging entire life cycle. By using a high share of recycled content in these materials, Freudenberg offers technical packaging textiles with a carbon footprint decreased by 35%. An independent LCA study showed additional benefits such as energy resource savings and lower water use.  
By replacing virgin polyethylene terephthalate (PET) with recycled PET (rPET), the cradle-to-gate carbon footprint of Evolon packaging textile materials decreased by 35%. A Cradle-to-Gate assessment of several Evolon products was made using virgin PET or rPET.
The study highlighted additional significant benefits on other criteria such as lower water use, reduced emissions into water, lower ozone formation, as well as important savings of minerals, metals and energy carrier resources. Freudenberg Performance Materials Holding SE & Co. KG (Freudenberg PM), Weinheim/Germany, has identified the highest priority areas of work to decrease the material’s CO2 emissions further on.
Evolon microfilament textiles are lightweight and can be reused throughout entire production programs, e.g. of a car model in the automotive industry. Furthermore, the new Evolon RE fabrics contain up to 85% of rPET which is produced in-house out of post-consumer PET bottles.
Evolon textiles are suitable for reusable technical packaging, which eliminate the use of thousands of disposable packaging materials. The fabrics offer scratch-free, lint-free, high-end surface protection for molded plastic parts, painted parts and other sensitive industrial and automotive parts during transport. This contributes to lower the scrap rate of parts and provide both financial and ecological benefits.
