Q-Cycle by Fulgar appeared in collections from some of the most important players in the textile supply chain, including Borgini, Brugnoli, Gipitex, Lemar, Luxury Jersey, Olmetex and Serates, at the Milano Unica show in Italy from January 31 to February 2nd.

Fulgar reports that the new yarn is proving a resounding success in an increasingly sustainable, circular and 100% European supply chain.

The result of  a unique chemical recycling technology in which the raw material for the yarn is replaced by pyrolysis oil from waste end-of-life tyres, Q-Cycle offers the same functional and aesthetic benefits as a virgin polyamide, being light weight, durable and resistant.

Q-Cycle has also now received ISCC PLUS certification which guarantees sustainability, traceability and mass balance standards for its entire production system.

This is complemented by an LCA (life cycle assessment) supply chain environmental impact study that indicates a significant reduction in CO2 emissions compared to conventional synthetic yarns. The yarn also conforms to Oeko-Tex Std Class Il Standard 100.
