The future of incinerators has been called into question because of a traditional failure to adequately separate materials, leading to failures in recycling. This has resulted in unnecessary and costly environmental damage, and sometimes harm to the human health of facility workers. However, these issues have been reversed.

However, another product is beginning to make inroads into the nylon market share – that product is polyester.
