Understanding Bio-Based Sustainable Commercial Carpets

Synthetic carpet fibers like Nylon, PET (polyester), and polypropylene are almost exclusively petroleum based. Today, new technology has enabled a bio-based PTT (triexta) commercial carpet fiber that helps reduce dependence on fossil fuels. This learning unit will provide a general overview of the new and existing materials and technologies used in commercial carpet fibers including the use of rapidly renewable bio-based materials.
