A new life for nylon from textile wastes

Working for a more sustainable textile industry

At all stages of our products’ life cycle, we strive to use resources efficiently and sustainably, focusing on reducing waste to zero.

Thanks to our advanced recycling technology, NUREL revalorizes the nylon waste generated during the manufacturing process, converting it into a sustainable, high-performance yarn.

Reco Nylon® is a 100% recycled PA6 yarn made from pre-consumer waste.

  • Reco Nylon reduces dependence on non-renewable resources
  • Reduces the amount of textile waste
  • Contributes to lower environmental impact
NUREL favorece a la transformación sostenible de la industria textil gracias a sus hilos reciclados, fabricados a partir de residuos preconsumo.

recycled nylon with less environmental impact

At NUREL we are involved in the study of the impact of our products through Life Cycle Analysis, with the objective of promoting sustainability in all our processes. These LCAs have allowed us to prove that Reco Nylon’s production considerably reduces the consumption of resources and minimizes its environmental impact.

The production process debold, strong,  Reco Nylon  is carried out entirely in our facilities, thus avoiding CO2 emissions produced during the manufacture and transportation of raw materials. Reco Nylon’s production generates approximately 9 times less CO2  pemissions than standard production. 

The production of Reco Nylon 6 generates almost 9 times less CO2 emissions than standard nylon 6.

Therefore, a production of 1 ton of Reco Nylon reduces emissions of an equivalent to:

CO2 produced by 265,451 cell phones being charged

CO2 produced by a car driving 8,191 km

CO2 absorbed by 101,000 m of forest in one year

We select and condition the textile waste generated at our facilities.


Thanks to our state-of-the-art facilities, the waste is processed through mechanical recycling.


A 100% recycled polyamide 6 polymer suitable for textile use is obtained.


The recycled polymer is extruded and converted into Reco Nylon fibers in our spinning mill.


Like any conventional yarn, our Reco Nylon follows the same processing routes as a conventional yarn.


Final garments made from Reco Nylon are GRS certified.
