Apeos – new analysis in collaboration with Confindustria

One of the cornerstones of our company is recycling.
Perhaps the most recycled material of all is wool, a natural fiber with numerous uses, warm and welcoming.
But every time you get to the final check, a problem arises: the levels of Apeos.

The levels of Apeos, elements capable of strongly disturbing the aquatic fauna, must remain within well-defined limits, but in the case of the recycled it is practically impossible.

The wool used to create new products is old-fashioned, therefore it does not comply with the new regulations in force, and consequently not approved.
To overcome this difficulty, Fil-3 and other companies have asked Confindustria for help: our yarns, and others, will be analyzed again in order to demonstrate that, at the time of washing, the Apeos are not released into the water, but remain firmly in place. to the tissue itself, thus avoiding the sex change of the fish caused by the normal release of these alkiphenols.

This analysis has the purpose of avoiding the limits currently imposed on recycled materials, and greatly facilitate their production.

We hope to get positive feedback.
