Bemberg™ by Asahi Kasei announces the achievement of the OK biodegradable MARINE certification

A leading company in the development and production of high-tech yarns with sustainable DNA, Bemberg™ by Asahi Kasei joined Blue Friday, UNESCO's Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) Sea-friendly alternative to Black Friday with the mission to safeguard and regenerate the Mediterranean Sea through Ocean Education initiatives.

It is in this prestigious context that Bemberg™ announces that it has obtained the OK biodegradable MARINE certification, which guarantees the biodegradability of its products even in the marine environment, as certified by TÜV AUSTRIA. After confirming 100 percent biodegradability in soil without release of any toxic residue, the new certification is a real solution to the problem of microplastics in water.

Indeed, the fiber comes with a circular economy footprint obtained from cotton linters through a closed-loop process. Bemberg™ also ensures certified sustainability credentials through its transparent and traceable approach.
