THE ECONYL® REGENERATION SYSTEM: MAKING ECONYL® YARN

 

 

THOSE SEEN DANCING partners with Aquafil to bring you quality sustainable garments made from their ECONYL® fiber.

FACTS

ECONYL® is 100% regenerated nylon fiber from fishnets and other nylon waste.

The ECONYL® regeneration system can be endlessly repeated without any loss in material quality.

Aquafil strives to rewrite the rules for producing man-made fibers. Their goal is to manufacture products that are not only entirely made of regenerated material, but are fully and endlessly regenerable. It is a process that forms a closed-loop production cycle in the truest sense.

ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS

For every 10,000 tons of ECONYL® caprolactam (raw material) produced*:

  • We save 70,000 barrels of crude oil by avoiding extraction of raw fossil material
  • We avoid 57,000 tons of CO2 equivalent emissions into the atmosphere
  • We save 1,012 GJ on total primary energy demand from nature (1 Gigajoule = 1,000,000 Kilojoules)

 

In 2015, the production of ECONYL® caprolactam saved*:

  • More than 100,000 tons of CO2 equivalent emissions, equal to a car circumnavigating the equator more than 15,000 times.
  • More than 2 million GJ of energy, equal to the energy demand of citizens of Rome for approximately 10 days.
