KARÜN EYEWEAR unveils Celion®

Eyewear company Karün has announced the launch of eyewear frames  made from a repurposed celluose acetate material recovered from cigarette butts.

The new material – called  Celion®  – has been created using advanced technology from  MEKO, a Chilean cleantech company that collects, processes and recovers the cellulose acetate found in cigarette butts. According to the company, this distinctive chemical process does more than repurpose a discarded substance; it makes a significant contribution to the preservation of the planet’s crucial ecosystems.

Karün states that Celion® has a variety of excellent properties for producing eyewear including mechanical physical advantages, while offering a 40% reduction in carbon footprint compared to virgin acetate, they say.

It is also formulated with no toxic additives and offers versatility in colours and a high level of transparency, among other features. The new frames produced in the material are described as “beautiful high quality products that generate a positive impact on our planet”.
