November 6, 2001
Nylon carpet reclamation effort expanded.

DuPont has expanded its nylon carpet reclamation center in Calhoun, Ga. In addition to receiving, sorting, baling, and packaging used carpet, the company has added equipment to recover nylon at the facility.

Recently, the facility reached its full operational potential of producing 1,000 pounds of recovered nylon per hour. The facility is capable of sorting up to 50,000,000 pounds of used carpet per year.

Since 1991, the DuPont Carpet Reclamation Program has reclaimed more than 60 million pounds of carpet.
