In Europe, only 1-3% of carpets are recycled. The rest finds space in landfill sites or goes up in smoke. Ege CircleBack is a take-back programme that aims to minimise waste by recycling and reusing used carpet.

All Ege CircleBack carpets are made from a unique combination of recyclable materials, allowing the company to recycle 98-100% of the used carpet’s components. At end-of-life, an advanced separation plant shreds the carpet into smaller pieces, which are sorted into different material components. The components are transformed into high-quality resources or utilised in other useful ways to create new products and thus contributing to a circular economy. For instance, the yarn fibres are reborn into new ECONYL® yarn of which some is turned into new carpet.
