Genomatica to scale bio-nylon 50-fold with Acquafil

Demonstration scale facility

Clean manufacturing leader Genomatica signed a deal with Aquafil to build a demonstration scale facility to produce 100% renewable nylon-6. Responding to surging consumer interest in sustainable products, the material will go to leading global brands eager to explore and develop renewable products. The deal is a 50-fold expansion over previous production levels and represents significant acceleration toward commercializing renewably-sourced nylon-6 — a material that is poised to reshape a $960 billion textile industry, Genomatica CEO Christophe Shilling says.
