Carnegie Introduces Revolutionary Biobased Xorel

Carnegie announced a revolutionary breakthrough with its Xorel product line. After seven years of research and development, Carnegie introduces the innovative Biobased Xorel--the first high-performance interior textile in the world with a majority of plant-based content. This major breakthrough boasts an impressive 60 to 85% bio content, depending on pattern, though the U.S. government standard requires only 25% to carry the biobased label. Moreover, the derivation of these polyethylene yarns from plant-based sources as opposed to fossil fuels ensures that the product has a significantly reduced carbon footprint. Fully vetted through third-party certifiers, Biobased Xorel has achieved Gold Level Cradle-to-Cradle certification and contributes toward LEED points in multiple categories including renewable materials and indoor air quality. Biobased Xorel Fact Sheet Environmental; Constructed of 60 to 85% (depending on pattern) bio content derived from sugar cane plant; Sugar cane production has lower carbon emission rates, compared even with beet or corn production and many other biobased sources; For each ton of sugar cane used to produce Biobased Xorel, 2.5 tons of carbon is captured and sequestered; Has attained Cradle-to-Cradle Gold certification and SCS Indoor Advantage Gold rating; All environmental claims are third-party certified and verified through more than 60 independent tests; Product contributes to LEED-CI (Commercial Interiors) categories: Rapidly Renewable Content, Indoor Air Quality, Material Transparency, and Material Optimization; Product can be returned to Carnegie at end of useful life for recycling or waste to energy conversion. General: Six Biobased Xorel designs in 91 colorways are currently offered: the classic Strie, Nexus, and Dash, new embroideries Abacus and Topiary, and new emboss pattern Veneer; No tradeoff in appearance or performance for the enhanced sustainability; Just as with the original Xorel, Biobased Xorel products can be applied for wallcovering, panel or upholstery use; Proprietary X-Protect backing enables end user to clean the product aggressively and with a wide range of cleaners including diluted bleach.
