Caprolactam with the lowest carbon footprint

As a leading global manufacturer of Caprolactam, we produce the key building block for high end grades polyamide 6 (nylon 6). Our new generation low carbon footprint (CFP) Caprolactam which sets a new benchmark in ultra-low CFP products is called EcoLactam®. This product family includes EcoLactam®, EcoLactam® Bio and EcoLactam® Circular.

Our history starts today. The production of EcoLactam® is a breakthrough which is again a starting point for more to come. With EcoLactam® we make history for future generations.


EcoLactam®

EcoLactamEcoLactam ® is Fibrant’s Caprolactam with a world class carbon footprint (CFP) of only 3.3 (expressed in kg CO 2-eq/kg Caprolactam) achieved by continuous process improvement. With this new and extraordinary generation of products, we reduced our CFP by over 50%. This is accomplished via significant N 2O emission and energy consumption reductions and by applying our proprietary HPO ® and Hydranone ® technology, while keeping the excellent performance and quality at the same high level.

EcoLactam® Bio

EcoLactam BioEcoLactam® Bio is Fibrant’s biomass balanced Caprolactam where the carbon is verifiably replaced by renewable resources, as certified by ISCC PLUS. EcoLactam® Bio is high quality Caprolactam produced using an oil-like product derived from bio-based waste streams. This bio-based precursor is for this reason not infringing the food chain. Using this bio-based feedstock in our Caprolactam production leads also to a similar product compared to the traditional fossil fuel based Caprolactam. Keeping the quality and performance at the same high level but with an ultra-low carbon footprint of 1,5 (expressed in kg CO2-eq/kg CPL).

EcoLactam® Circular

EcoLactam CircularEcoLactam® Circular is Fibrant’s circular Caprolactam where the carbon is verifiably replaced by recycled resources, as certified by ISCC PLUS.

EcoLactam® Circular is based on post-consumer and post-industrial waste being converted back to its original based molecules via a process called pyrolysis. This true circular process results in a feedstock that is similar to the fossil fuel based product: keeping the quality and performance at the same high level and a true upcycled circular product.
