Aquafil develops Econyl70 yarn, symbol of green policy

May '08
Aquafil Environmental Research Team has developed Econyl70: a BCF recycled polyamide yarn manufactured from a polymer containing at least 70% post-industrial waste, available in the standard count dtex 1000/42f and in 10 different colours.

Wear resistance and top colour performance make Econyl70 suitable for heavy contract applications providing unique opportunities for a "green" design.

The post-industrial waste used for the production of Econyl70 is coming both from internal (production scrap) and various external sources (carpet manufacturers) and therefore represents the result of a coordinated effort to "close the loop".

Actually, the new Econyl70 yarn is part of a more global approach of Aquafil environmental commitment. Aquafil is strongly focused to create links in the carpet supply chain, to maximize results from a global perspective for a cradle-to-cradle approach to sustainability.

Recognizing its responsibility as major polyamide BCF producer, Aquafil is involved to develop methods and tools to identify, measure and control the impact of its Supply Chain on a global scale.

This process implies a multi-step program:
- organizing the whole Supply Chain of the Group according to the aim;
- investing in the research and development for the Environment;
- developing eco-friendly products (like Econyl70)
- promoting the diffusion of a responsible Environmental policy;
- by mid 2008, issuing the first Aquafil's Sustainability Report

The activities of our Environmental Research Team rely on global environmental KPI (Key Performance Index) data, collected from all Aquafil production plants to support Aquafil decisions.
