Asahi Kasei and Microwave Chemical launched a joint demonstration project for the chemical recycling of Polyamide 66
Asahi Kasei, the multinational Japanese chemical company, and Microwave Chemical, a Japan-based company engaged in microwave chemistry-related businesses, launched a joint demonstration project to commercialize a chemical recycling process for PA 66 using PlaWave™ microwave technology. The method uses microwaves to depolymerize scraps from manufacturing and post-use waste of PA66 and obtain the monomers of hexamethylenediamine and adipic acid. The monomers obtained are anticipated to be achieved at a high yield with low energy consumption and can be used to manufacture new PA66.
PA66 is used in various items like plastic parts for automobiles and electronics and yarn for airbag fabric, and its demand is predicted to rise globally. The company currently produces fossil-derived intermediates for manufacturing engineering plastics, contributing to increased greenhouse gas emissions. To reduce greenhouse gas emissions from chemical products made from fossil fuels, industrial processes are receiving more attention as the world works towards carbon neutrality. With this partnership, the two companies aim to commercialize a method of producing PA66 that reduces greenhouse gases more than conventional manufacturing processes.
