Arnprior Nylon 6 Plant Recovery Processes
MetadataShow full item record
BASF's Arnprior site manufactures nylon 6 polymer and BCF products. Since 1966, millions of pounds of post-industrial and post-consumer nylon 6 waste has been depolymerized back to caprolactam. The recovered caprolactam has been used to manufacture polymers for a wide variety of end uses, including BCF yarn products. The Nylon 6 Recovery operation in Arnprior is an integral part of the recent innovations that BASF has brought to the market such as the 6ix Again program, and the lines of SAVANT and Enviro6ix BCF yarns. This paper will focus on the Nylon 6 Recovery operation and its many associated developments over the years.
