The “Born R2R by Aquafil” initiative aims at engaging Aquafil’s clients in eco-designing the carpets of the future, given that products need to be conceived from the beginning to be fully recyclable at the end of their life. More specifically, Aquafil has been working closely with its clients to produce fully disassemble carpets (some IMO certified) with materials and fibres that are compatible with the ECONYL® regeneration system. This way, at the end of their useful life, carpets can be recycled instead of being disposed to a landfill or sent to incineration. More precisely, the parts made of ECONYL® regenerated nylon will be recovered and recycled into new ECONYL® nylon fibres by Aquafil. This closes the loop and allows the industry to take a step forward toward circularity.

Revolutionary Recycled Leather by Foglizzo Sustainable Lab
The most sustainable alternative to leather, is revolutionizing the industry with its innovative approach. Made from pre/post-consumer leather scraps, it utilizes 85% leather fibres, offering a customizable experience akin to genuine leather. The top colour can be personalized to any desired shade, providing designers with a creative playground within Foglizzo Custom range.
What sets it apart is its commitment to full circularity. It comprises only two components: leather fibres and polyester fibres, eliminating the need for glue or resin. Unlike many vegan alternatives, it does not employ PVC or PU coating, ensuring breathability. Furthermore, it boasts an impressive sustainability profile. With up to 85% recycled leather fibre, surpasses the 45% maximum of existing alternatives. Additionally, 50% of the polyester fibre is recycled. This translates to a remarkable 60-85% reduction in carbon footprint compared to natural leather. And it’s already certified by GRS.
Founded in 2015, nexgentec was launched because of a lack of interfaces existing, that were suitable to allow the high-end marine and residential markets, to fully work with Dante audio over IP solutions. The MCP4K, the very first product launched by nexgentec, was warmly welcomed, and soon designated ‘the last missing link’, taking audio over IP now truly to the next level. Since then, nexgentec continues to engineer solutions that are always more efficient in terms of application, system design, size, and energy consumption. It guarantees not only the best digital sound quality, but also the coolest user experience in terms of features and functions, that can be fully controlled and customized in the proprietary software modules, so it can be used for any equipment in every zone. Today, nexgentec has made itself indispensable in this niche market, where it is being specified by most shipyards and technology advisers and installed by all the main integrators in Europe.

Morbern’s total commitment to greener living and eco-friendly solutions makes it a leader in the supply of sustainable vegan leather.
Morbern was one of the first manufacturers to introduce durable FR-free coated fabrics to meet the growing demand for materials without flame-retardant (FR) additive in North America. As the FR-free revolution gained momentum around the world, Morbern expanded its FR-free product range and launched MorGreen™: a collection of coated fabrics without any chemical FR additives, still achieving CAL117, the European Fire Norm EN1021 (Part 1&2) and the much coveted OekoTex Label. The most recent addition to the MorGreen™ FR-free collection, EvoHide™, combines high bio-content ingredients and a 100% recycled polyester backing fabric to reach 75% sustainable content.
As a pioneer of durable, eco-friendly surface solutions, Morbern Europe also opted this January (2023) to switch the backing of its 8 best-selling IMO MED certified product ranges to a 100% recycled fabric, knitted in-house with Repreve™ yarn, derived from used PET plastic bottles. Morbern Europe is part of the global ISO9001:2015 & ISO14001:2015 certified company, headquartered in Ontario, Canada with a central European distribution hub in Belgium.
