Move 4earth® pioneers technical textile transformation into high performance polyamides

Move 4earth® is a patented process, developed by Solvay, transforming stable sources of post-industrial technical textiles, such as automotive airbags, into premium quality engineering plastics. Industrialized in Poland, this unique technology offers novel eco-friendly products with similar performance when compared to our traditional Technyl®.

These materials, newly launched under the brandname Technyl® 4earth®, are a good substitute to high performance technical plastics used in automotive, construction, household appliance and leisure industries.

Move 4earth® project is supported by the European Commission (LIFE+ program) and recently awarded the Pierre Potier Prize for sustainable and eco-responsible developments.
