In line with the rising demand for caprolactam, Aquafil has been working to deliver efficient caprolactam products for various applications. The Aquafil Group is one of the leading manufacturers of polyamide 6 (PA6) fibers and polymers and nylon. The fibers produced by the company mainly targets two sectors; textile flooring (carpets and rugs) and clothing (underwear, hosiery, and technical sports clothing). The polymers are mainly sold on the engineering plastics market. The company operates through three product/business areas - bulk continuous filament (BCF), nylon textile fibers (NTF), and polymers. In May 2018, Aquafil and Genomatica announced the formation of Project EFFECTIVE, a multi-company collaboration to produce more sustainable fibers and plastics for commercial use by using renewable feedstocks and bio-based technologies. One of the key objectives of Project EFFECTIVE is to develop a more sustainable nylon, made from bio-based caprolactam produced using renewable feedstocks.
