249: Nylon from ocean and landfill waste

Problem:

Luxury-car interiors usually feature exotic hardwoods and animal-sourced leather

Solution:

The British automaker Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) is using Econyl nylon made by nylon manufacturer Aquafil in Ljubljana, Slovenia, employing depolymerisation from recycled industrial plastic, clothing offcuts, and fishing nets, to develop high-quality interiors such as floor mats and trim pieces from ocean and landfill waste.
