RADICI
Polyamide recycler Zeta Polimeri acquired / Reprocessing of fibres and pellets
At the beginning of 2020, polyamide producer Radici (Bergamo / Italy; www.radicigroup.com) acquired Italian recycling company Zeta Polimeri (Buronzo / Italy; www.zetapolimeri.it). President Angelo Radici announced this during the recent textile trade fair “Domotex” (www.domotex.de/en) in Hannover / Germany. The exhibition also saw the market launch of the group’s recycled fibre “Renycle”.

Radici and Zeta Polimeri have been working together for many years. The small company, based between Turin and Milan in Buronzo, specialises in recycling PA 6 fibres from industrial waste and post-consumer materials. Radici has expressed a deep respect for the experience in processing used fibres that has been gained under managing director Domenico Zulato. On an area of around 8,000 m², Zeta Polimeri not only processes fibre waste but also offers PA 6 and PA 6.6 pellets and flakes. At press time, the company had not yet responded to an enquiry from Plasteurope.com as to whether there are plans to integrate the company, which was founded in 1992, into one of the Radici units.

According to Radici, the “fully recyclable” Renycle fibre can be used for carpets, rugs and clothing. The company states that in-house research has shown major advantages in terms of environmentally relevant properties compared to fibres made from virgin PA 6.
