TOKYO - Japanese chemical companies Asahi Kasei and Microwave Chemical have launched a joint demonstration project to chemically recycle nylon using microwave-based technology.

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.
