Migdal Haemek - Nylon 6.6 manufacturer Nilit has earned the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification Plus system (ISCC+) accreditation for its primary Sensil ByNature facility in Israel with other facilities around the world expected to follow suit soon.

The ISCC+ system is a globally applicable, independent sustainability certification program that confirms the controlled use of renewable feedstocks throughout a supply chain. The ISCC+ system verifies the origin of the renewable feedstocks in Sensil ByNature, the new sustainable nylon 6.6 with lower environmental impact that offers brands and retailers a high-quality foundation for more ecologically responsive apparel designs.

“The ISCC+ system accreditation for Sensil ByNature is an important achievement in Nilit’s mission to enable a more sustainable apparel industry,” said Ilan Melamed, Nilit General Manager. “The ISCC+ certification independently validates the substantial environmental benefits of Sensil ByNature so that apparel brands and retailers can incorporate these sustainable premium performance fabrics into their collections with complete confidence.”

Launched in April 2022, Sensil ByNature is said to be the first nylon 6.6 for apparel made by replacing a portion of the yarn’s raw materials derived from fossil fuel with renewable bio-gas feedstock. With the bio-gas substitution, Sensil ByNature decreases the consumption of scarce fossil feedstocks while also reducing the associated greenhouse gases that threaten the atmosphere.

According to Nilit, Sensil ByNature also gives apparel brands and retailers a verifiable tool for creating high-quality apparel with all the performance benefits of nylon 6.6 but with reduced environmental impact and improved Life Cycle Analysis.
