OUR VISION


“TO GO BEYOND OURSELVES MAKING THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE BY PIONEERING CLOSED LOOP REGENERATION PROCESSES AND DELIVERING 100% SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTS.”
GIULIO BONAZZI – CHAIRMAN, AQUAFIL GROUP
IT STARTED WITH A DREAM

The ECONYL® brand was inspired by Giulio Bonazzi, President and CEO of the Aquafil Group. He firmly believes in maximizing sustainability through closed-loop manufacturing systems.

 

What started as a sustainability initiative in 2007 soon became a milestone and commercial driver within Aquafil. This vision was brought to life with the determination, dedication and ingenuity of Aquafil employees. Four years of research and development and nearly €25 million were invested in order to make this dream a reality and create the ECONYL® Regeneration Process.
