ADVA®terra - ADVANSA's latest innovation - is a biodegradable polyester fibre made from 100% recycled raw materials. The fibres are engineered by a special process to provide biodegradation capabilities without compromising the favourable mechanical properties of PET. ADVA®terra is available as water dispersible short cut fibre for the paper and wet laid nonwoven industry as well as staple fibre for dry laid nonwovens and tow for the floc industry in various fineness and cut length combinations. Thus, ADVA®terra can be used in production across diverse end-use applications, even for applications with food contact.
Polyester is known to be the most suitable material for mechanical recycling through regranulation and extrusion into new fibers. ADVANSA has been using this option for more than a decade. With the circular economy goals defined in the EU, the topic of "Design for Recycling" will gain more and more importance in many areas. ADVA® MegaBond stands for “Made in Germany” quality and is intended to encourage recipes and concepts to be rethought in order to create better recycling options.
