Taskforce Circularity

Taskforce circularity propels Sioen sustainable garments.

Sustainable garments: design for

Six “Design For” guidelines as rules of thumb for designing and producing durable Sioen garments. Your guarantee for sustainability all the way.

Products for agriculture, seagriculture and fishing

Sioen produces fabrics and protective garments for farmers, seagriculture and fishing, thus contributing to the production of food for all.

Flexible eco systems: Green textile

Greentecstyle® is an innovative textile solution for vertical ecosystems that reduce heat stress in cities.

Sun protection products

Sioen is producing technical textiles that are used as sun protection in verandas, gazebos, pergolas, car park shadings and in vertical sunscreens, on windows and even facade scrims on whole buildings.

Anti-graffiti

Sioen's dirt-repellent and anti-graffiti lacquer can be applied on buildings and trailers.

Sustainable technical textiles aiming to reduce harm

Sustainable technical textiles aiming to reduce harm through the production process, extended lifespan and second- and end-of-life options.

Textiles for large scale sanitation

At the Sioen group, we produce all types of technical fabrics from wovens, scrims, geomembranes, films, sheets to coated textiles for large scale industrial sanitation. They protect against leakages of all types of spills.

Blue Rhino

The “Blue Rhino concept” of SIP Protection is the first 100% circular safety trousers for chainsaw users on the market.

Textiles for waste management

We produce coated textiles and geotextiles for all types of waste management to protect groundwater and surface water a.o. Our range consists of bottom liners, cover systems, side slope lining, liquid collection systems, cut-off wall systems.

Water bags

We manufacture technical textiles that can be used to manufacture dewatering bags. These bags can be used in flooding areas. The sludge runs into the bag or is pumped into it. The water flows out of the bag and the sludge remains in it.

Pond liners

We produce liners that are used in pond landscaping and to construct water bassins that enhance the character of parks and other recreational areas.

Ursuit eco bathing suit for training

"Extreme long lasting training suit made of a technologically advanced, sustainable fabric combining the an elastomeric fiber and a 100% recycled polyamide yarn derived from post consumer materials."

Ursuit Warm n' Cool range

Recycled materials are used when available, and we are exploring the possibilities to expand the usage of sustainable materials. For example, the elastic fleece and the carrying bag of the Warm n' Cool are using recycled plastic.

Sustainable PPC collection

Sioen PPC will launch a high visibility sustainable range. In the first phase, a rain jacket, a softshell and a polo shirt will be launched.

Geotextiles for water bassins, dams and canals

We produce geotextiles that are used in coastal and river erosion protection to construct large water basins, dams and canals among others. Geotextiles have the ability to separate, filter, protect, or drain and are indispensable in any construction.

Fabrics for sewer renovation

We produce nonwovens and scrims that are used for CIPP in sewer renovation. CIPP stands for Cured-In-Place-Pipe (CIPP) in pipeline repair. The principle consists of inserting a felt lining into a pre-existing pipe that is the subject of repair.

Fabrics for reef protection

There's care needed to preserve and protect coral reefs during dredging activities. We produce fabrics that are used to protect the reef from mud and blown sand. The first type of fabric serves as a curtain, the latter keeps these curtains affloat.

Textiles for desludging and dewatering

We produce coated textiles and geotextiles for removing fine sediments from sites and for dewatering of waste water and sludge water. Our range includes wovens, scrims, nonwovens, films, sheets and coated textiles for industrial sanitation.

Biobased and biodegradable

Sioen’s R&D team searches for biobased and biodegradable solutions and takes part in a range of EU projects.

Seaweed cultivation

Our R&D team is actively looking for sustainable aquaculture solutions. As part of the EU AT~SEA project, Sioen developed textile mats and nets on which seaweed can be cultivated. The fabric has been deployed and tested in Norway and Ireland.
