Action against waste fishing nets

ECONYL® Regeneration System
From fishing nets to yarn
The waste nets are brought to the
Aquafil plant for transformation,
together with other discarded nylon,
into ECONYL® regenerated nylon
for the fashion and interior
Since 1969, the Aquafil Group has been a leading player, both in Italy and globally, in the production of Nylon 6. In 2011 Aquafil developed and launched the ECONYL® Regeneration System. Thanks to this groundbreaking process, the fishing nets recovered by the Healthy Seas initiative can be regenerated into ECONYL® nylon yarn. The yarn is used for the production of sustainable apparel and carpet products.
