"Sustainability is not a goal to be reached but a way of thinking, a way of being, a principle we must be guided by" — Guilio Bonazzi, Chairman, Aquafil Group


Giulio Bonazzi, Aquafil’s Chairman and CEO is a relentless innovator. In 2011, after four years of tireless research and development, Giulio’s dream of producing nylon 100% from waste became a reality with the ECONYL® regeneration system.

For more than 50 years, Aquafil has led the way for doing business with sustainability and circular economy at the core of its values and development strategy.
