YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2021-01-29 16:14:22 – United Kingdom

For manufacturers, it's difficult to keep with the recycling practices and they are using cheap and accessible plastic in their manufacturing. Although some like JLR are investing in sustainable and renewable solutions. Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has come up with its new conceptualization in which it uses ECONYL Nylon derived from ocean waste to design its high-quality interiors. Their next-gen collection will feature trims and other parts made from this fabric. This fabric is sourced from waste fishing nets in the oceans and post-industrial waste.

The fabric is created by a synthetic fiber industry, AQUAFIL, this fabric has already been used by many designer brands in backpacks, watches, sportswear, etc. The waste is analyzed and chemically treated by depolymerization. The by-products were segregated and reused accordingly. The chemical composition of the regenerated nylon is the same as the mainstream material which is used for making carpet flooring and textiles.

Range Rover Evoque already used Eucalyptus textile for its interior, and now Jaguar’s all-electric I-PACE and Range Rover Velar is coming up with a Kvadrat interior, which is a high-quality fabric made from robust wool and suede from recycled plastic bottles.

They are focusing on reducing waste and carbon emissions and reusing materials. They are following a Destination Zero futuristic strategy that aims at zero accidents, zero emissions and congestions. The company will settle carbon-neutral zero-emission powertrains along with other safety features for their ultra-modern next generation of Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles.
