Dinamica®, a product heading to innovation and responsibility

The manufacturing process used by Dinamica® makes it possible to use fewer virgin raw materials since it uses a part of recycled fibres of waste products which would otherwise be sent to landfill sites or incinerated. This enables to reduce CO2 emissions and other environmental impacts associated with these processes.

To ensure circularity of the entire life cycle of the microfibre, Miko is exploring ways of recycling Dinamica®: a project is being developed for the automotive sector, so that at the end of its useful life, Dinamica® can be turned into thermal and sound insulation panels.
