Commitment to Sustainability
Aquafil’s focus on environmental responsibility is more than an initiative, it’s our passion. We have developed an Engineering Plastics product called ECONYL®, which is based on reclaimed Nylon 6 and Nylon 66. We also utilize a patented "Lactam Direct Recycling (LDR®) system" to breakdown Nylon scrapt to its basic raw materials for polymerization into prime resin. Every year we review our operations and generate a sustainability report and environmental balance sheet that reflects our commitment to "zero-waste."
