DSM and Fibrant significantly reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions for Akulon® PA6 with EcoLactam®

DSM and Fibrant reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions for Akulon® PA6 by 50% with EcoLactam®.
(Photo: DSM Engineering Materials: DSMPR528)In view of the current tightening of greenhouse gas (GHG) emission ambitions in Europe, it is with great pride that DSM and Fibrant announce the accomplishment of a major reduction in the GHG emission of Caprolactam and thus subsequently also of PA6 as produced in Europe by July 2021. The GHG emission saved is estimated to be around 800 million kg CO2 on annual basis. This significant reduction has been achieved by implementing several technology improvements amongst which an advanced N2O abatement program in Fibrant’s Caprolactam production process.
