Filature Miroglio was present at the World Textile Summit with Newlife, the exclusive platform dedicated to responsible innovation.
A long-standing division of Miroglio Textile and a leading exponent of state-of-the-art spinning, Filature Miroglio featured with the Newlife brand as a silver sponsor at the World Textile Summit in Barcelona on 21 September 2011, presenting the major innovation of a sustainable, hi-tech business.
The summit represents one of the most important events in the textile industry calendar, and this year saw speakers of international renown, including Kofi Annan, discussing key issues such as sustainability, innovation and the challenges expected by the sector over the years to come.
What is Newlife?
Newlife is a Filature Miroglio product platform offering a complete, unique, certified system of recycled polyester filament yarns sourced 100% from post-consumer plastic bottles which are entirely collected and processed in Italy.
Thanks to Filature Miroglio’s established know-how and strong research mission, Newlife is based on a complete, patented process. The 100% Made in Italy project stands out in terms of design, high performance and quality, and total respect for the environment. An extremely flexible platform, Newlife can be used in a vast number of applications with standards of quality which are at least equivalent to the performance delivered by virgin polyester yarns, while also offering considerable savings for the environment in terms of resources and costs.
