Nylon Recycling

Nylon Recycling in 2- According to Berners-Lee, the greenhouse gas footprint of nylon is the same carbon footprint as wool, but because of its greater durability a lower overall carbon footprint in total. Nylon use to be recycled by breaking it down in fire, but that released toxic fumes or ask which contained hydrogen cyanide, so the practice was stopped. Today you can recycle nylon, but it is formed into pellets for reuse in industry. When you recycle nylon in 2, it prevents pollution and reduces mining raw materials.
