Some see trash. Others see treasure.
Nylon waste from landfills and oceans around the world is transformed into ECONYL® regenerated nylon. It's exactly the same as brand new nylon and can be recycled, recreated and remoulded again and again.
01 Rescue The ECONYL® Regeneration System starts with rescuing waste, like fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpet flooring and industrial plastic from landfills and oceans all over the world. That waste is then sorted and cleaned to recover all of the nylon possible.
02 Regenerate Through a radical regeneration and purification process, the nylon waste is recycled right back to its original purity. That means ECONYL® regenerated nylon is exactly the same as virgin nylon.
03 Remake ECONYL® regenerated nylon is processed into carpet yarn and textile yarn for the fashion and interior industries.
04 Reimagine The beauty of ECONYL® regenerated nylon is that it has the potential to be recycled infinitely, without ever losing its quality. We believe circular design is the future and using ECONYL® is our first step on that journey.
ECONYL® global warming impact
For every 10,000 tons of ECONYL® raw material, we are able to:
- SAVE 70,000 barrels of crude oils
- AVOID 57,100 tonnes of CO2 eq. emissions
It reduces the global warming impact of nylon by up to 80% compared with the material from oil.
