Aquafil US, one of the leading manufacturers of Nylon 6, has bagged 2017 Green Good Design award for its Econyl fibres, made of 100 per cent regenerated nylon using the Econyl regeneration system. Waste containing high levels of Nylon 6, such as fishing nets and carpets, is transformed back into raw material without any loss of quality with this system.

From the regenerated raw material, Aquafil is able to make Econyl fibres with 100 per cent regenerated nylon. The Econyl regeneration system is an intelligent and sustainable way to create Nylon 6 fibers from waste in a continuous loop production cycle.

Green Good Design's goal is to bestow international recognition to those outstanding individuals, companies, organisations, governments, and institutions – together with their products, services, programmes, ideas, and concepts – that have forwarded exceptional thinking and inspired greater progress toward a healthier and more sustainable universe. The Green Good Design programme has been initiated by The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies and The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design.

"Aquafil US continues to invest valuable assets into creating high quality, sustainable products," said Franco Rossi, president of Aquafil USA. "We were thrilled our company was recognised by Green Good Design as an exceptional leader in sustainable manufacturing," added Rossi. (RR)
