Filature Miroglio to substitute virgin PET yarns to Newlife

On the occasion of the last edition of Expofil in Paris from February 8th – 10th 2011, Filature Miroglio has announced that it is switching all of its virgin polyester filament yarns to Newlife, a technologically innovative certified yarn platform whose comprehensive sourcing and production approach is based on exclusive horizontal partnerships and processes all made entirely in Italy and completely traceable.

“The switch to Newlife for all of our polyester filament yarn products is simply good business sense” says Dr. Stefano Cochis, Business Unit Director of Filature Miroglio and the creator of Newlife. “Newlife is an incredibly flexible platform that allows for a vast number of applications and performance with levels of quality at least equal to virgin polyester equivalents, but with considerable resource and cost savings for the environment.”

The exclusivity of the technology used in the creation of Newlife springs from a partnership approach which can be summarized as follows:

Newlife exclusive partnerships and production processes:

• DEMAP: Italian company whose role is to source selected postconsumer bottles from waste recycling bins located in the north of Italy.
• Dentis: Italian company that collects the selected material from DEMAP and through a mechanical (not chemical) process, converts it into a polyester polymer made entirely of recycled bottles, suitable for Filature Miroglio's spinning process.
• Filature Miroglio uses all its 30 years experience, technological know-how and research commitment to transform Dentis polymer into a range of ultra high quality and performance recycled polyester filament yarns – Newlife - suitable for a wide variety of applications and with the same level of performance and quality of yarns made with virgin polyester.
• The entire process is Oekotex certified and has also obtained the Plastica Seconda Vita trademark issued by the Istituto Italiano dei Plastici (I.I.P.)

Newlife offers tangible sustainable benefits. Thirty 1.5lt PET bottles are needed to produce 1kg of Newlife yarn, that saves 2.4 Tons of plastic from going to waste dumps for each ton of Newlife produced. Using current Filature Miroglio numbers and imagining the switch had already occurred, Newlife would avoid the waste of 72,000 tons of plastic, save 1,308,000.000 litres of water and 90,000 tons of Co2 over three years.

The Newlife range includes POY, flat, textured, microfibre and hollow section yarns for a wide variety of applications such as fashion, sportswear, outdoor, furnishing, contract and accident prevention textiles, to name but a few. Newlife also comes in a wide range of counts that reflect technical and environmental performance and always meet targeted application expectations.

Newlife is already making its first steps as an industry leading range for both its performance, sustainable credentials, and certified proprietary process, and a number ofdevelopment projects are underway with industry-leading fashion and design brands.
