RadiciGroup started off the new year with two new sustainability initiatives – the market launch of Renycle, a range of yarns obtained from recycled nylon, and the acquisition of Zeta Polimeri, an Italian company with thirty years’ experience in the recovery of synthetic fibre and thermoplastics.
Both concrete actions fall within the Italian group’s strategy aimed at environmental protection and meeting the requests of an increasingly demanding market, RadiciGroup says.
At Domotex 2020, RadiciGroup showed a number of innovative solutions for the recovered fibres sector targeted at fashion fabrics, furnishings and automotive applications.
These new products are the result of the group’s vertically integrated nylon production and the synergies among its various business areas, from chemicals to engineering polymers and synthetic yarns.
At RadiciGroup, all production scraps become resources. For some time, the Group has had the expertise to various reuse polymer scraps and select the most appropriate new use for each of them in the field of engineering polymers. Now, with Renycle, the group has the analogous capability to produce yarn for the segments of textile flooring, rugs and fitted carpet, not to mention the most precious ‘Made-in-Italy’ fashionwear.
“Renycle reduces the need for new raw materials of fossil origin, thus decreasing the overall environmental impact, while providing same the high-level technical characteristics the market is accustomed to. Moreover, it is 100% recyclable at the end of its life,” RadiciGroup concludes.
