Aquafil USA moves extrusion operation to 100% renewable energy

Home Press Release Aquafil USA moves extrusion operation to 100% renewable energy

Cartersville, Ga.—Aquafil USA is moving its extrusion operation to 100% renewable energy. After March 21, the new, fully-dedicated electric substation will be activated to provide the company with energy coming entirely from green renewable sources—mostly wind and solar.

The extrusion plant on 1 Aquafil Drive was inaugurated in 2006. Eleven years later, thanks to an agreement signed with the City of Cartersville electric department, Aquafil USA is just weeks away from no longer using fossil fuels to power the facility.

Once the new supply system is implemented, the combination of the production of Econyl 100% regenerated nylon along with the green energy flow will allow Aquafil yarn manufactured in Cartersville to score an extremely low carbon footprint.
