We bet on more environmentally friendly processes and technologies in our sustainable line
Antex places great importance on the conservation of the environment. We are actively involved in efforts to ensure energy efficiency and water conservation as well as in ways to reduce contamination levels through the elimination of non-biodegradable waste. In line with our principles we are committed to the usage of environmentally friendly processes and technologies which:
Create products which help us comply with European Union environmental conservation regulations
Contribute towards a reduction in energy consumption and water conservation
Reduce greenhouse gas emissions
Preserve non-renewable natural resources
Reduce the ecological impact of non-biodegradable waste
We have developed a range of sustainable products which combined with our I+D allow us to obtain high performing and environmentally friendly yarns.
Biodegradation is one of the options being considered to combat the great quantity of plastic waste which ends up in landfills. Backed by laboratory testing and scientific evidence, Yarnaway yarns offer a unique solution to landfill contamination by increasing biodegradation in biologically active landfills.
The Seaqual Initiative fights plastic contamination and collaborates in the removal of marine waste from our oceans and thereby helps our society to progress towards a circular economy. As part of this initiative we have developed a wide range of Seaqual yarns for different sectors and applications which are 100% recycled and contain marine waste.
The recycling process
Our recycled product line commences with textile chain post-industrial waste and material from the selective collection of PET containers.
This origin diversity covers a wide range of products and closes the textile chain’s recycling circle. The Ecoantex process includes filtration and polymer treatment systems which help to prevent product deterioration and allow us to produce identical properties to those of yarn originating from virgin polymer.
The waste is shredded and extruded in order to re-process and convert it into polymer chips which are then re-used in a wide range of products.
