As per Cordura, DuPont Tate & Lyle’s Susterra propanediol durable coatings and waterproof, breathable membranes are manufactured through a proprietary fermentation process using plant-derived glucose. Additionally, Susterra is manufactured using a sustainable process that produces 50 per cent less greenhouse gas emissions and consumes 42 per cent less non-renewable energy.

Cindy McNaull, Global Brand and Marketing Director of Cordura stated, “The collaboration reinforces Cordura’s message that sustainability begins with products that last,’ adding, “Products made with Cordura fabrics are long-lasting which need to be replaced less often, helping reduce waste. We constantly look at ways to increase the utility and durability of our products and ways we can benefit the environment.”

Cordura said the fabrics made with the help of this collaboration can be applied to apparel, footwear and gear. The first innovations will be on display at Techtextil, May 9-12, in Frankfurt, Germany.
