ECONYL® is our most exciting innovation as an engineered plastics product made with post industrial reclaim (PIR). The ECONYL® process creates a "closed-loop system" of waste recovering by using our BCF yarn as our primary raw material for the finished product.  This "circle of life" for ECONYL® is what creates amazing benefits for the environment while maintaining high quality and performance. In fact, ECONYL® grades can match the mechanical and physical performance of similar commercial grades. Compare the properties for yourself. You will see that ECONYL® is the most environmentally friendly, cost-effective solution for your application. Aquafil also provides an ECONYL® "Co-Branding" option so you can create your own certified green product.



ECONYL® is the first product to pass the demanding
requirements for ULE sustainability certification!
