PrimaLoft Inc., developer of high performance insulations and fabrics has announced developments to its PrimaLoft® P.U.R.E.™ manufacturing platform. P.U.R.E. (Produced Using Reduced Emissions), a proprietary, renewable manufacturing technology, now achieves up to 70 percent reduction in carbon emissions.
“We looked at the whole manufacturing process and focused on where all the dirty emissions are coming from,” says Tara Maurer-Mackay, senior vice president – product strategy.
PrimaLoft completed a comprehensive environmental assessment of the insulation manufacturing processes and identified the most impactful opportunities to reduce carbon emissions. From there, its engineers focused on increasing energy efficiency by making changes around the fiber recipe, introducing new thermal equipment and optimizing the source of energy to reduce carbon emissions.
