Aquafil USA was named Recycler of the Year for 2015 by Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE) for its historic and continuous efforts in carpet recycling through the ECONYL® Regeneration System.

AquafilUSA is in fact the main plant for processing Nylon 6 carpet waste coming from all across North America. Reclamation of used carpet fibers and other nylon waste is the first step in the ECONYL® Regeneration System, an intelligent and sustainable way to create Nylon 6 fibers from waste in a continuous loop production cycle.

“We are pleased to be given this prestigious award from our industry partners and colleagues, reinforcing our position as a leader in sustainable manufacturing and a circular economy,” says Franco Rossi, President Aquafil USA.

CARE’s mission is to advance market-based solutions that increase landfill diversion and recycling of post-consumer carpet and encourage design for recyclability.
