• Arnprior Nylon 6 Plant Recovery Processes 

      Guindon, Frank (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2003-05-12)
      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 ...
    • Integrated Caprolactam and Hydrogen Production from Post-Consumer Nylon 6 Carpet 

      Evans, Robert J.; Scahill, John; Looker, Michael; Elam, Carolyn C.; Bash, Thomas; Czernik, Stefan (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2002-05-13)
      This talk discusses a thermocatalytic process performed in an extruder to first convert nylon 6 into caprolactam. The organic residue can be subsequently converted to hydrogen in a catalytic fluid bed reformer. The hydrogen ...
