The way back to lifeHealthy Seas doesn't just remove the waste, it gives it a brand new, beautiful purpose.
We make sure that the recovered nets are regenerated into ECONYL® nylon yarn.
From fishing nets to yarn
The nylon recovered from fishing nets is transformed into virgin raw material, which, together with other waste materials, is turned into ECONYL® regenerated nylon yarn.
ECONYL® yarn can be used for a wide range of products and can be recycled endlessly without any loss of material quality.
The ECONYL® Regeneration System
The ECONYL® Regeneration System is an innovative process invented by Aquafil. It allows the transformation of nylon waste such as fishing nets and other discarded materials into first grade nylon for the production of apparel and other textile products. The regenerated nylon yarn is called ECONYL® and has the same qualities as virgin nylon from fossil raw material. If you want to find out more about the process visit the ECONYL® website.
