The effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions has become a worldwide preocupation. Today, more and more consumers are aware of their own individual responsibility, and choose products that respect natural resources. As part of our policy on sustainability, ADVANSA now offers consumers
eco-responsible product options without compromising on comfort nor on purchasing power. ADVANSA ´s environmentally friendly bedding product range with a reduced carbon footprint brings us one step closer to building a sustainable future.


Sophisticated recycling technology and state-of-the-art industrial processes allow us to transform PET polymer into polyester fibres while preserving the high quality of DACRON® filling fibres. The lower carbon footprint does not compromise comfort.

Life Cycle Analysis

An independent peer reviewed LCA study showed ADVANSA’s low carbon footprint fibre gives a reduction in Global Warming Potential (GWP) of 80% and a 77% reduction in Non-renewable Energy Use (NRU). Global Warming Potential (GWP) is a characterisation model developed by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate change (IPCC) aimed at measuring the greenhouse effect caused by CO2, emissions, also known as carbon footprint. Non Renewable Energy Use is the sum of all the energy used during the entire life cycle of the product, based on non-renewable resources. A non-renewable resource is a natural resource, such as fossil fuels, that cannot be produced, grown, or used on a scale which can sustain its consumption rate.

(1) PET: polyethylene terephthalate (polyester)
(2) PLA: Polylactic acid

* Life Cycle assessment conducted by the independent Dutch research organization TNO Utrecht Institute , December 2010. Assessment available upon request.

During LCA of our fibres, we use a cradle-to-grave approach where the energy produced by the incineration of the product´s end-of-life waste is recovered. The use phase of the finished product (duvets/pillows) is excluded from the analysis.
