Polypropylene is a synthetic man-made fibre obtained from propylene, an olefinic hydrocarbon. Its invention has been an Italian scientific and technical success, which earnt Giulio Natta, professor at Politecnico di Milano, the Nobel Prize for chemistry in 1963. Industrialised with the Moplen brand, this new material quickly established itself, turned into plastic objects and accessories used in the most varied applications.
From the textile point of view, polypropylene has good dynamometric characteristics; it is hydrophobic, abrasion- chemical- and dirt-resistant.
Every year, around 50 million tons of polypropylene are produced, destined to different applications: from packaging to car components, technical textiles to accessories for fashion products.
Many may think that only natural fibres are environmental-friendly – since they are produced by nature, but it is not so. Cotton, for example, has a big environmental impact. Its cultivation requires a huge quantity of water and chemical products (fertilisers, herbicides and insecticides), which persist in the ground and atmosphere.
In order to evaluate the sustainability of a material, many aspects have to be taken into account and the whole cycle has to be considered.
Synthetic fibres are mainly contested from the ecological point of you for two factors: dependency from fossil fuels and non-biodegradability of the materials produced. In order to reduce these issues, manufacturers are investing in research to increase recyclability and produce polymers from renewable sources (bio-based).
Among the man-made fibres, polypropylene is the most sustainable: thanks to its physical and chemical properties, its production requires lower temperature than other synthetic polymers, therefore it has a lower environmental impact in terms of energy consumption and CO2 emissions. In addition, it can be easily recycled, allowing the regeneration of waste in printable material (plastics) which can be re-recycled.
