Nyleen™ is the nylon film with a lower carbon footprint. Thanks to our Nylon 6 chain unique vertical integration and to its finely tuned and monitored production process, this major innovation is a nylon film of the highest quality with CO2 emissions of up to 28% less than standard nylon film production.
The most sustainable nylon film
Why Nyleen™ has lower CO2 emissions
In collaboration with a leading international sustainability consulting company (Quantis - https://quantis-intl.com), we have investigated the opportunity to add value to our product based on credible environmental metrics. We have used a life cycle assessment to map out a synergic strategic environmental journey aimed at designing a continuous-improvement action plan to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.
The biggest single influence on our carbon footprint is the nylon resin. As part of DOMO Chemicals Group, we benefit from a fully integrated supply chain, enabling us to reduce this impact by taking control of each step in the production process.
Our energy mix just gets greener
The second-biggest influence on our carbon footprint is our energy consumption. We are responding, by hiking the proportion of renewable sources used in our Cesano Maderno plant from 25% to 38%, to slash the CO2 impact by some 30%. Our target: an energy mix entirely derived from renewable sources by the end of 2020.
Being close to our customers
Our strategy to cut the carbon footprint of our production processes also draws on the benefits of our multi-plant framework. With plants in northern and southern Europe, not only are we closer to our customers but we also optimize the efficiency of our logistical processes.
