Product Details

The Aquafil Group is a leading manufacturer of synthetic fibers for the textiles industry, headquartered in Trento, Italy. Over the past decade, Aquafil invested significant resources in the research and development of sustainable materials, which resulted in the creation of the ECONYL® regenerated nylon in 2011. Aquafil recycles fishing nets, old carpets and textile scraps into regenerated and regenerable nylon called ECONYL®. As well as being a solution for waste, ECONYL® regenerated nylon is also better for mitigating climate change. It reduces the global warming impact of nylon by up to 80% compared with the material from oil.

Aquafil has 16 plants around the world. In the US, there are two yarn production plants in Cartersville, GA, and two carpet recycling plants - one in Phoenix, AZ and one in Woodland, CA.
