As part of Sustainable Industry Challenge – Chemport Edition and Teijin Aramid are looking for innovative solutions that can increase recycling opportunities for aramid yarns. Teijin Aramid is working actively on reducing her C02-footprint and already utilizes 3 para-aramid recycling facilities in the Netherlands for multiple materials. We are looking for new separation techniques that can separate aramid yarns from its original application and thereby recycle the material to use for new purposes.
Teijin Aramid is, with its 1800 employees worldwide, the market leader in the production of high performance materials with a focus on the automotive, marine, protective and defense market. Teijin Aramid was established in 1918 and has 100 years of experience in the development of lighter, stronger and more resistant materials. With sales offices in 8 countries and activities across the globe, they aim to make a positive contribution to the CO2 reduction in the chain by recycling their aramid products, Twaron being their main armid product.
