Rennovia produces RENNLON nylon, a 100% bio-based nylon-6,6 polymer

October 3, 2013 |

In California, Rennovia announced that it has produced, and shipped to a prospective partner, samples of what it believes to be the world’s first 100% bio-based nylon-6,6 polymer, under Rennovia’s RENNLON brand, made from Rennovia’s renewable monomers, RENNLON adipic acid and RENNLON hexamethylenediamine.

Production costs for Rennovia’s bio-based AA and HMD are projected to be 20-25% below that of conventional petroleum-based AA and HMD, with a significantly lower per-pound capital cost. Additional projected benefits include an 85% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared to conventional petroleum-derived AA, and a 50% reduction in GHG emissions compared to conventional petroleum-derived HMD.
