Nilit, the leader in premium Nylon 6.6, has announced that the company has completed its conversion to cleaner energy from a new, on-site cogeneration power plant using natural gas at its main manufacturing facility. Nilit, headquartered in Israel, specialises in the polymerisation, spinning, and texturing of nylon 6.6 yarns for textile applications.

The move, which will reduce the company’s CO2 emissions by 40 per cent, and emissions of toxic gases such as sulfur dioxide to zero, is the latest in a series of ongoing sustainability and corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives announced in 2019 that will have a significant positive influence on the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) measurements of Nilit products, the company said in a press release.

The new on-site cogeneration plant, which also serves other businesses in the area, required a significant investment, the size of which makes it the largest and most cost-effective conversion in the industry.

The move is another milestone in the Nilit Total Product Sustainability (TPS) programme designed to provide the apparel market with more eco-friendly products. Other Nilit environmental initiatives recently announced include: an increase in capacity of its Sensil EcoCare recycled Nylon product line; exciting new product collaborations with leading sustainable apparel brands; and R&D programmes to develop high-quality, premium, sustainable performance, and fashion fibres to meet the needs of today’s environmentally-conscious consumer.

“Throughout its fifty one-year history, Nilit has undertaken efforts in water conservation, energy usage and materials and waste management. The move to more sustainable, greener energy at the heart of our manufacturing infrastructure accelerates this effort in a game-changing way,” Ilan Melamed, Nilit general manager said.
