Aquafil, an Italy-based company specialised in the production of Nylon 6, has announced that it has again joined the Ellen MacArthur Foundation Network. As a network member of the world’s leading circular economy network, Aquafil will work with the Foundation and other members to share ideas and drive the global transition to a more circular economy.
The Foundation is a collaborative network of businesses, innovators, cities and governments, universities and thought leaders who work together to accelerate the adoption of circular economy practices and processes that maximise the use of resources. The Ellen MacArthur Foundation is an organisation that leads in transitioning to a circular economy model built on three principles: design out waste and pollution, keep products and materials in use and natural systems.
“It’s an amazing honour for Aquafil to join, again, Ellen’s MacArthur Foundation diverse and dynamic innovators among the Network. Aquafil has committed itself to circular economy and is invested in making it a reality across key industries across the globe. We produce Econyl nylon from waste materials such as fishing nets (ghost nets from the ocean and nets from fish farming) and used carpets because we know that we need to find innovative ways to reduce and reuse waste that is filling our oceans and landfills. It is our hope that through this network we are able to accelerate the transition to a circular economy,” Giulio Bonazzi, chairman and chief executive officer at Aquafil, said in a press release.
“We’re delighted to have Aquafil join the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Network. Aquafil is already designing, developing, and scaling circular business models and products. As part of this Network, Aquafil will work with other organisations to share ideas and drive the global transition to a circular economy,” Joe Murphy, Network Lead at Ellen MacArthur Foundation, said.
