THE ECONYL REGENERATION SYSTEM
An international network for the recovery of waste and discarded materials has been promoted, that, once selected and appropriately treated, can be reused as raw materials in the production cycle and transformed into new caprolactam (the raw material for the production of nylon 6). The production process allows almost infinite recycling and it is therefore the intention to gradually decrease on raw materials of fossil origin for the greater good of the planet.
ECONYL® Regeneration System is the world's most efficient industrial system for the production of nylon 6 from 100% regenerated materials. It is an innovative industrial regeneration system introduced in order to produce the nylon 6 polymer from:
post consumer waste, i.e. end-of-life products made from polyamide 6 including fishing nets, fluff (the top of carpets and rugs) and rigid textiles
|pre-consumer waste such as oligomers, scraps and others, generated from the pro-duction of nylon 6|
