SCS Recycling Program Certification

As part of Nylene’s commitment to providing environmentally sensible and sustainable products, we recycle pre-consumer and post-consumer Nylon 6 sources for use in the production of specific Nylon 6 products. Nylene Canada has obtained certification through an extensive audit process for its recycling program from SCS Global Services (SCS). This certification acknowledges our sustainable practices and recycling process.

Nylene Canada operates North America’s longest continuously running depolymerization process for Nylon 6. Through this process we convert Nylon 6 back to its monomer, caprolactam. The recycled caprolactam is then processed on-site to make specific nylon 6 polymers with recycle content. Our depolymerization recycling process has been in operation since 1966 and was first certified by SCS in 2007.

The recycling program meets all of the necessary qualifications to be certified for the following claims:

SCS Recycling Program Certified:
Nylene Canada’s (Arnprior site) Nylon-6 Depolymerization Unit

  • Conforms to the SCS Recycling Program Standard V4-0.
  • Has demonstrated 77% yield of caprolactam from processed waste
  • Capable of processing post-consumer and pre-consumer nylon 6
  • Is capable of processing post-consumer and pre-consumer nylon 6 material
