Using Econyl yarn as a constituent for the production of mats and carpet tiles does help in some way

Monday, October 22nd, 2018

 

Our seas are polluted with plastics from a variety of applications. The fishing industry is no stranger to contributing to this with a vast amount of fishing nets or torn parts of nets floating, rolling at the seabed catching a variety of marine life midwater, and smaller pieces being ingested by fish and marine birds.

Recently puffins off the Kerry coast were found to be slowly starving to death with their stomachs half full of plastic waste which they are unable to either pass or digest which in turn limits their stomach capacity preventing them from gaining weight and ultimately surviving.

This image of fragments of monofilament netting is typical of what kills marine life.

Using Econyl yarn as a constituent for the production of mats and carpet tiles does help in some way. Old recycled fishing nets collected at fishing ports throughout the World do work their way back into some of the recycling loops.

Milliken products produced from Econyl are: All standard solution dyedproducts, WOM Original, Quadrus, Forma HD tiles Tergo textile used in the HD tiles and Milliken carpet tiles.
