Corn is grown, harvested and the corn sugar extracted. The residual is used in feedstock.
The natural corn sugar is processed to produce Sorona® renewably sourced™ polymer.
Sorona® polymer is used to manufacture yarn, to tuft into Godfrey Hirst eco+ carpet.
Godfrey Hirst eco+ is distributed in New Zealand.
Available in the latest colours and styles to suit your decor.
The Journey - explore the icons below...
Godfrey Hirst Carpets has combined innovative carpet manufacturing with breakthrough polymer technology from DuPont™ to develop Godfrey Hirst eco+, the next generation carpet.
Made from natural corn sugar, the Sorona® polymer in Godfrey Hirst eco+ places less reliance on non-renewable resources and generates less greenhouse gases to produce than nylon.*
The Sorona® polymer in Godfrey Hirst eco+ is made by unlocking and harnessing the solar energy stored within corn and separating naturally occurring compounds.
The natural sugar component is then used to create the unique monomer that is joined with others to form the DuPont™ Sorona® polymer.
*Greenhouse gas emissions from the production of Sorona® are 63% lower than nylon 6 (CISO standard 14040).
~DuPont™ Sorona® contains 37% renewably sourced™ ingredients by weight.
