TOKYO - A demonstration project to chemically recycle nylon using microwave-based technology has been launched by Japanese chemical companies Asahi Kasei and Microwave Chemical.

The two companies say they expect the project will lead to the commercial chemical recycling of polyamide 66 - also called nylon 66 - at high yield with low energy consumption.

The process utilises microwaves to depolymerise PA66 and directly obtain the monomers hexamethylenediamine (HMD) and adipic acid (ADA) to manufacture new PA66.
