Is a bio based fiber for the textile industry.
A new way of producing fibers to interpret the needs and values of today’s society, creating a perfect synthesis of performance and environmental awareness.
Years of research into the highest engineering standards in a manufacturing, environmental and social context have led to the development of VEGLON®, a unique product, bio-based innovative fiper that’s set to revolutionize.
VEGLON® is a yarn made of 45% cornstalk (rather than the crude oil-derived materials traditionally used by the nylon industry),totally renewable resource that comes from agricultural waste.
Corn is the world’s most produced cereal in terms of quantity, what entails the generation of large quantities of waste.
Nowadays agricultural wastes represent an alternative source of renewable raw materials.
Different processes can be applied to these alternative materials to separate their components and obtain chemical products with high added value, such as, monomers, and biopolymers.

Saco Green has examined the environmental impact of its products through the analysis of their life cycle (LCA).
The results of the analysis provided a broad overview of the environmental impact of nylon yarn, with specific indications of how the impact is associated with each stage of the nylon life cycle. In particular, the extraction phase of raw materials has proved to be the most impactfuland therefore this is where we concentrated our improvement efforts.
Research and innovation led SacoGreen to launch the VEGLON® generation System project: a highly innovative industrial system that allows turning disused nylon into a secondary raw material for new products, therefore avoiding new waste entering the environment.
