All Olyna's zeros

0%

emissions into the environment

Unlike the production cycle of wool and natural fibers, Olyna's production process does not consume water. Unlike nylon, polyester, viscose or triacetate, Olyna does not use solvents or acids. Furthermore, as it is mass-dyed, no bleaching processes are carried out.

0%

gas consumption

Essegomma can count on an advanced photovoltaic system that produces electricity and supplies 50% of the plants. Furthermore, the energy deriving from the cooling of the compressors is recovered to generate heat and heat the water which in turn heats the building and offices, reducing gas consumption to zero.

0%

water waste

To produce 1kg of cotton 6000 liters of water are needed, to produce 1kg of Olyna yarn, 0.4 liters are sufficient. A fact that amply demonstrates its green spirit.

0%

waste

The Essegomma production process has a waste production rate of 0%: all waste is in fact 100% recycled.

When you are so green your home can be a park

Olyna is produced in Italy by Essegomma. Italian company specialized in the production of yarns based in the Groane Natural Park in Misinto (MB). Since 1983.

The Essegomma plant operates through a dry production totally free of polluting emissions. Every kg of waste derived from the extrusion process is recycled and the electricity used comes from the photovoltaic system, without consuming even a cubic meter of gas. A stream flows a few steps from the plant and the whole area is a nice habitat for the wild animals. The perfect integration between industry and nature.

It's more eco-friendly Olyna or the cotton? There is no story.

An independent study carried out by the University of Barcelona has demonstrated, data in hand, an aspect already evident to all insiders. The production process of Essegomma yarns, of which Olyna is a part, is much greener than the production process of cotton yarns. In particular, the study compares the production of 1000 meters of fabric with a balance of the resources consumed and the waste generated.

From the graph it is evident how the Olyna system beats the cotton (CO) system on all the parameters considered:

  • Less water: Olyna consumes only 2% of the water used by the CO system
  • Less electricity: Olyna consumes 66% of the electricity used by the CO system
  • Less natural gas: Olyna consumes 23% of the natural gas used by the CO system
  • Less reagents: Olyna consumes only 5% of the reagents used by the CO system
  • Less raw materials: Olyna uses 65% of the raw materials employed by the CO system
  • Less waste: Olyna produces 62% of the waste produced by the CO system

In this second graphic we have a further comparison between the two systems with respect to different sustainability parameters. In 8 out of 11 parameters, the Olyna system is significantly greener.
