Textile Industry is One of Most Polluting in World

DUBLIN (Ireland)Nov. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — ResearchAndMarkets.com published a new article on the sustainable textiles industry The $960 Billion Textile Industry is One of the Most Polluting in the World

Biomaterial manufacturer Genomatica and nylon material manufacturer Aquafil have partnered on a new demonstration facility to manufacture the largest quantity of 100% renewable nylon-6 ever available. There has been a surge in interest in sustainable textiles in recent years as more companies look to clean up their supply chains. The $960 billion textile industry is one of the most polluting in the world in terms of chemical treatments and greenhouse gas emissions with nylon production alone responsible for about 60 million tons of emissions per year.

The multi year agreement expands on the companies‘ existing relationship. Earlier this year, the companies produced the first ton of bio nylon-6 precursor material at a pilot scale. The move to a demonstration scale plant will now give Genomatica the ability to supply renewable nylon to brands who wish to explore developing renewable products. The first production runs are expected to create 50 tons of bio-nylon for pre-commercial use by Genomatica’s brand partners with plans for the demonstration plant to continue supplying bio-nylon until commercial scale plants are in operation.
