MOSCOW (MRC) -- AdvanSix, a diversified chemistry company, announced on 7 Jun 2023 a new nylon offering with 100% post-consumer recycled content, providing a circular solution to help customers meet sustainability goals and create a variety of products, from home office furniture and durable packaging to fast, fuel-efficient cars, said the company.
AdvanSix will premiere this latest nylon solution at the upcoming Global Pouch Forum in Rosemont, IL, US from 6-8 Jun 2023. AdvanSix post-industrial (PIR) and post-consumer recycled (PCR) grades Aegis Resins and post-industrial Capran BOPA Films use 100% recycled content to produce nylon 6 products that are every bit as processable, formable, and durable as virgin nylon.
They offer the same excellent physical and mechanical properties as conventional nylon products. As one of the top five fully integrated manufacturers of nylon 6 globally and one of the largest single-site global producers of caprolactam, AdvanSix offers industry-leading quality, consistency and reliability of supply.
Designed to meet customer needs with ease, PIR/PCR usage does not require any change in product processability, avoiding tradeoffs with alternative recycled sources and improving carbon footprint without costly re-qualifications or sacrificing performance. Certified by an independent third-party organization for recycled content using a mass balance and allocation approach, AdvanSix's PCR and PIR is confirmed recycled content that meets food contact materials regulations. AdvanSix will be presenting its 100% recycled content nylon at Booth 5 at the Global Pouch Forum 6-8 Jun 2023. Event attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about the product from AdvanSix representatives as well as see it in action.
We remind, AdvanSix’s Q4 adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) rose 28.1% year on year, to USD66.6m, on higher market-based pricing and the favourable year-on-year impact of planned turnarounds, said the company. These positive drivers were partially offset by a 15% decline in sales volume due to soft end-market demand and customer destocking, as well a lower operational performance, the company said.
