ecodear® – Partially plant based Polyester

Bergans lives for the great outdoors. To enable future generations to enjoy the outdoors as we do today we must end dependency of fossil resources such as oil.­ Being innovative and trying new paths has always been part of Bergans success

In 2016 we are together with our partner TORAY introducing products made of ecodear®; a partially plant-based polyester.­ Polyester is conventionally made from 100 % crude oil. In ecodear®, the ethylene glycol needed in the polymerization is instead made from molasses, a bi-product of sugar production. Chemically ecodear® is just like conventional polyester and is therefore fully recyclable.­
