Milestones

1: Nylon from Waste

2006: The R&D process begins to create nylon from waste instead of oil. After five years of intense research, in 2011 ECONYL® nylon was launched and hundreds of textiles manufacturers adopted the material to create beautiful carpets and textiles. 

2: Healthy Seas in Action

2013: The Healthy Seas initiative was founded by Aquafil in partnership with an NGO. The organization recovers abandoned fishing nets with volunteer divers. Since then, it has collected more than 510 tons of nets which are regenerated into ECONYL® yarn.

3: An Inside Look

2018: Aquafil established its first U.S. carpet recycling facility in Arizona, and a second plant in California. Each carpet recycling facility has the capacity to process up to 35 million pounds of carpet each year.
