Contents on the CD Rom

  • The applications of fibers belong to one of three broad categories:
    apparel, home furnishings, and industrial
  • Much of the fibrous waste is composed of synthetic and natural materials such as polypropylene, nylon, polyester and cotton.
  • Nylon 6 and nylon 6,6 account for 65% of the face fiber used in carpet
  • The complexities involved are to be considered in the logistics of carpet and other wastes collection and transport to the recycling facilities
  • The many collection schemes and recycling technologies should work in a concerted fashion to have an impact on waste recycling
  • Recycled nylon comes from 
    post‐industrial waste fiber  and 
    yarn collected from spinning and 
    processed into reusable nylon fiber.
  • The benefits of recycling nylon come
     from the reduced energy needed 
    to produce the final fiber, reduced dependence on oil, and the 
    diversion of waste from landfills. 
  • The final product can be recycled 
    again at the end of its life.
