Cathay to begin bio-based nylon production

Written by John Mowbray

SHANGHAI – Cathay Industrial Biotech Ltd is to break ground on the construction of a brand new facility in Xinjiang to manufacture bio-based nylon and has also signed an agreement to expand its capacity for bio-based intermediates for use in the textile and engineered composite sectors.

This technology reduces both dependence upon oil and environmental impact in the production of polyamides and has been ear-marked for rapid development by many governmental and technology associations including the China Ministry of Industry, the China Textile Association, the China Chemical Fiber Association, among others.
