Description from the production of polyamide from raw materials. Polyamide is made from caprolactam which can be derived with several processes. Here crude oil is processed via naphta to benzene, that to cyclohexane and finally to caprolactam. Caprolactam is polymerised at 250ï¾°C to PA. The required energy supply was assumed to come from oil.
