NYU professor wins award for research into sustainable clothing manufacturing
An NYU Tandon researcher was honored for a nylon production method that would eliminate the use of oil and bind greenhouse gases into the fabric. The method employs water, plant waste, and solar energy to deliver a material identical to nylon (produced at an estimated 6 million tons annually). Photovoltaic arrays drive the electrochemical process to synthesize hexanediamine, a precursor to nylon. Only sun, water, and carbon dioxide will be required as inputs.
