Every Haibang Product
Haibang New Materials is committed to safe operations and responsible stewardship of the environment. We believe that our business must be a safe place to work, our facilities must be good neighbors in their communities, and our operations and products should be continuously improved to reduce their impact on the environment. Our concern for sustainable development has led us to examine and manage the environmental impact of our products throughout their entire life cycle—from raw materials through final use and disposal.
Sustainability Throughout Our Product Lifecycle
Of the major synthetic fibers, polypropylene (PP) is the only one that is created as a by-product—with lower greenhouse gas emissions and lower energy use than other fiber resins.
Manufacturing PP fiber from polypropylene is a process with low impact on the environment—no toxic waste, no toxic emissions and no fluorocarbons.
The manufacture of products from PP staple fiber has low environmental impact:
- Low melting point reduces the amount of energy needed to create products
- Low moisture pickup requires less energy to dry products (if needed)
- Scrap/waste from converting operations is recyclable/reusable in manufacturing operations
- No toxic emissions or wastes
Use in Product Manufacturing
PP fiber has many properties that contribute to sustainable use. PP fiber is:
- Chemically inert, so it doesn’t break down with harmful effects on health or the environment
- Low in density, so less of it is needed than other fibers to make products
- Durable, so products using it can last longer and don’t need rapid replacement
- Easily cleaned without high energy or environmentally unfriendly methods
PP staple fiber has a very high calorific value when incinerated as part of a mixed waste stream, providing a high energy value for the amount of CO2 emitted. It’s also clean burning, with no toxic emissions.
