Nilit recently launched several nylon products from the Sensil portfolio. According to the company, Senil BioCare is specially formulated to rapidly decompose under anaerobic conditions in water and landfills, positively impacting the persistence of textile waste, particularly in the oceans. Sensil WaterCare eliminates 100 percent of the water, chemical, energy and pollution risks associated with traditional wet textile dyeing.
