Rennovia produces 100% biobased nylon-6,6 polymer [Registered]

Rennovia recently announced that it has produced samples of what it believes to be the world’s first 100% biobased nylon-6,6 polymer, under Rennovia’s brand RENNLONTM. The biobased nylon was made from the combination of Rennovia’s RENNLONTM adipic acid and RENNLONTM hexamethylenediamine (HMD or HMDA). Rennovia uses glucose as a feedstock for the production of adipic acid (AA) and hexamethylenediamine (HMD) using its proprietary chemical catalytic process technology. .Bioadipic acid is produced by aerobic oxidation of glucose to produce glucaric acid, which then undergoes hydrodeoxygenation to yield adipic acid. BioHMDA is also produced by hydrodeoxygenation of glucose to yield a key…
