23 september 2014 -RadiciGroup companies Noyfil SA and Noyfil SpA – among the European leaders in the manufacture of a wide range of polyester yarn – have chosen the highest level of transparency and clarity by adopting the UNI 11505:2013 standard for measuring and declaring the recycled material content of their r-Radyarn® and r‑Starlight® reduced environmental impact yarn made from post-consumer recycled polyester bottles. This standard refers to the recycled material content in man-made fibres.
Now that r-Radyarn® and r-Starlight® yarns are certified to UNI 11505, Noyfil SA and Noyfil SpA are in a position to provide more information with more detail on recyclate content. For each of the certified yarns, the companies will now indicate the exact percentage of recycled polymer together with the percentage of additives.
“The value added for our customers is the greater transparency in communication afforded by this certification process,” said Maurizio Vedovati, general manager of Noyfil SpA and sales manager of the RadiciGroup PET YARN Business Unit. “By disclosing the precise content of recycled materials, we are giving our customers all the data they need to calculate the exact composition of their own finished products and provide the end user with more information directly on the labels.”
“The growth trends for our r-Radyarn® and r-Starlight® product lines from 2012 to the present have been positive, and we are optimistic about the future,” Mr. Vedovati continued. “This new standard has contributed – and will continue to contribute – to decreasing the confusion on the market by increasing the credibility of products made from recycled materials.”
