Aquafil inaugurates US carpet recycling facilityItalian yarn company Aquafil officially opened its first carpet recycling facility in the US in December. The facility is located in Phoenix, Arizona.
The company has said the site will process 36 million pounds of used carpets destined for landfills each year. This will provide nylon 6 waste to feed into Aquafil’s regeneration process.
The fibres will be shipped to Aquafil’s depolymeristation facility in Slovenia to be converted into its Econyl yarn product.
