Nilit, the Israel-headquartered leader in nylon 6.6 for apparel, is to sponsor a pioneering German-Israeli partnership to advance textile circularity.

The initiative will officially launch with the Circular Textiles Business Matchmaking Showroom, organised by Re-Fresh Global, opening on June 17th at Expo Tel Aviv.

The showroom kicks off a year-long exchange programme between German and Israeli experts in sustainability, circularity and textile waste management and is supported by the German-Israeli Future Forum Foundation.

“This partnership aligns perfectly with Nilit’s goal to positively influence the textile and apparel industry to use more sustainable products in more responsible ways,” says Ilan Melamed, Nilit general manager. “Nilit has been recognised for improving its manufacturing footprint by increasing its use of clean energy, reducing emissions and waste, and introducing responsible new products that target specific ecological challenges. We look forward to connecting with other sustainability-minded companies to further advance our environmental initiatives.”

“Israel’s image as the start-up nation has been the key to creating tremendous impact on various industries,” adds Viktoria Kanar for Re-Fresh. “It’s about time to show our excellence in sustainability and circular economy innovation. This showroom, and the German-Israeli expert exchange programme it’s based on, is a first step towards developing new solutions and technologies that will create a new cleaner and circular global fashion and textile industry.”

Under its Total Product Sustainability programme, Nilit manufactures the largest portfolio of sustainable premium nylon 6.6 performance and fashion fibres and yarns in the industry. The company recently launched several new products in its Sensil consumer brand portfolio that are specifically targeted at the industry’s most pressing environmental challenges.

Sensil WaterCare eliminates 100% of the water used in the typical wet dyeing process and Sensil BioCare contains technology that reduces any impact on oceans caused by microfibre shedding.
