Recycling Non-Wovens, 1995 Nonwovens Conference Proceedings

Glenn K. Wallace


The recycling of non-woven materials is difficult due to several factors. Single resin systems have more potential to be utilized in producing products. Typical markets for non-woven materials based on their characteristics will be identified. Recycling of non-wovens by chemical and thermal decomposition processes are being developed by numerous companies. Early trials with thermal decomposition indicate that they will also apply to non-woven materials. Based on our recycling experiences, guidelines for successful recycling programs will be discussed. Environmental management standards being pursued in Europe could become a de facto requirement for being able to do business there.
