recyclers now targeting higher-value engineered resins.

In other words, it is mainly engineering resin of high value, not commodity.
Carpet Recycling won two awards. CARE (
Carpet for US recovery efforts)
Four of the automotive industryyear-
Old programs that promote later reuse
Won the Dan Eberhart Memorial Environmental Management Award.
But the carpet industry\'s involvement in recycling has not started in 2002.
The industry has a long history of using materials in its own products, in the medium term
After 90 s, it began to cooperate with the United States. S.
National groups in the Environmental Protection Agency and the central and western Carpet Recycling working group.
Carpet manufacturers eventually spent hundreds of millions to build recycling infrastructure.
In 2002 care, a seemingly impossible goal was set, that is, 40% recovery.
Carpet consumption by 2012.
This record has been impressive so far.
The industry recovered 0. 225 billion pounds.
In 2005, the consumption carpet a10% increased by more than 2004 year on year.
2006 figures will be released this month.
However, in North America last year, about 5 billion of carpets were landfill, so the current recovery rate is only about 4 lbs. 5%--
From 40% all the way.
But with the increase in the number of collections, the confidence of CARE is also growing.
Cost of recycled carpet fibers--
About 75% of them are nylon. -
By using a more economical drying process and leaving them, it has been reduced-
Ball-making is done to composite materials and molding that reuse fibers.
Successful applications for recycled carpet fibers include

Even the early repolymerization plant for recycling nylon 6, which has been closed for the past five years, is now back in operation.
The original Honeywell/DSM deaggregate and reaggregate plant of evergreen nylon recycling in Augusta, Ga.
Due to the low price of hexamine and low process efficiency, it is hindered.
Evergreen now belongs to the carpet industry in Dalton, Georgia.
The recycling plant was restarted.
DSM operates the plant for Shaw and improves efficiency.
Nowadays, the price of hexamine is very high, and Shaw uses then repeatedly on his own carpet instead of selling yarn in the commercial market like Honeywell.
Shaw\'s more powerful collection system is expected to collect 100 million
The consumption nylon 6 of evergreen trees, as well as another 0. 2 billion of other carpet types for other purposes.
All these events support Evergreen\'s success this time.
Textile Recycling Company once again awarded the second large environmental award for recycled carpets.

Fiber, founded in 1983, was originally recycled from industrial textile waste into fiber products known as Cotton crude.
But with the emergence of the North American Free Trade Agreement, the largest Texas plant in North America began to close. A.

Fiber is now Handheldinfrared (NIR)
The detector separates the incoming carpet through surface fibers and then packs it through an aggregate type-
Nylon 66, nylon 6, PP and all other products.
Some of them are packed soldoff.
The company also processes one material at a time at Vernon recycling plant, usually for a few weeks at a time.
Its drying process begins by tearing the carpet to pieces, then separating the fibers and removing the backing.
This fiber is repackaged and sold to companies and other end users at home and abroad. L. A.
The fiber is the remaining material. -
