Macron is partnering with RadiciGroup to develop and produce technical sportswear that combines high performance with sustainability. RadiciGroup, headquartered in Bergamo, specializes in the production and sale of polyamide, chemical intermediates, high-performance polymers and other advanced textile solutions. The first result of this collaboration is a sports sock created with Renycle, a yarn that RadiciGroup produces by recycling nylon 6. RadiciGroup recovers and recycles production scraps to convert them into polymers and later produce sustainable yarns that maintain technical features comparable to the yarn made of fossil-source materials, but with a lighter environmental impact. The Renycle yarn is said to reduce CO2 emissions by almost 90 percent and to generate savings of more than 87 percent in energy and 90 percent in terms of water consumption.
