In addition, eucalyptus can be grown on areas of marginal yield that cannot be used for the production of food. It follows that the productivity of the fibers is 10 times higher than that of cotton. From 6 squared meters of land 10 t-shirts in eucalyptus fiber are obtained against 1 in cotton.
But what makes the eucalyptus fiber production process revolutionary is the complete recycling of the solvent used which is recovered almost 100%, while the remaining emissions, very limited, are degraded in biological purification plants. For this reason, the production process has been awarded by the European Union with the “European Award for the Environment” award. In addition, the solvent used belongs to the amino acid family and is also used in body care products. The absence of solvent risks is proven in the dermatological and toxicological fields.
There is a bit of nature in every eucalyptus fiber garment. Soft as silk but resistant as polyester, this natural fiber is also extraordinarily breathable. By means of the nano-fibrils, the eucalyptus fiber stores moisture and then quickly releases it into the environment. This function provides a very pleasant thermal compensation on the skin which makes the fabric warm in winter and cool in summer.
