Amann: closed recycling management thanks to new PA sewing thread

With the recycled sewing thread Lifecycle Polyamide, made from polyamide 6.0 (PA 6) continuous filaments, the manufacturer of sewing threads and embroidery threads Amann & Söhne GmbH & Co. KG, Bönnigheim/Germany, offers Cradle to Cradle threads.
Lifecycle Polyamide was developed in cooperation with the internationally active consulting institute EPEA GmbH - Part of Drees & Sommer, Hamburg/Germany. The raw material for Lifecycle Polyamide is obtained from recycled fishing nets and other textile waste. Amann does not use any silicones, since no materials that are harmful to health and/or the environment may be used during production. Only compostable dyes are used. Lifecycle Polyamide is therefore certified according to Cradle to Cradle and optimized for recycling as a raw material in the technical cycle. It allows for a consistently closed recycling management without any further waste.
Cradle to Cradle, stands for products that are either used as biological nutrients in biological cycles, or that are continuously kept in technical cycles as technical nutrients. It evaluates the 5 categories material health, material reuse, use of renewable energies, water management and social responsibility.
