MMF are committed to reducing environmental impact by reducing its use of natural resources.
However, some waste is unavoidable. As said, recovery, recycling and reuse of this waste is saving on resources and saving on money. Process or factory waste can be sold and recycled into other polymer products, but several MMF producers are now recycling their own process waste. A typical example is practiced in the polyamide carpet production where up to 70% of material originating from process waste and 30% from virgin polymer is used to make carpet yarn.
