Nylon Recycling Validation has been completed, and construction is underway for an industrial-scale facility that will recycle technical textile waste when it starts up in 2016 at a site in Gorzów, Poland. The facility is part of Solvay S.A.’s (Brussels, Belgium; www.solvay.com) Move4Earth project, which is supported by the European Commission’s LIFE+ program. The project aims to develop a recycling process to “revalue” technical textile waste into high-quality polyamide 6.6 (PA6.6) grades. Initially the effort is focused on automobile airbags. More than 70% of these products are made of silicone-coated nylon fabrics, mostly based on PA6.6. Solvay has developed a proprietary process for separating the fabric from the coating, and producing PA6.6 with “no significant loss in material properties,” says Solvay.
