Invista Nylon Chemicals has plans to double its current nylon 6,6 polymer production at the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park in China in order to meet the rising domestic demand. With this move, the plant’s capacity will reach 400,000 tons/year.
As part of the plant’s maintenance turnaround, Invista recently completed the technology upgrade of its Victoria plant in Texas, USA with the most advanced adiponitrile (ADN) technology. The move is expected to increase ADN production and further support growth in downstream nylon 6,6 applications.
Invista shared its views on the future growth of the nylon 6,6 value chain and also updated the audience on the company’s important Adiponitrile investments at the Wood Mackenzie American Nylon Conference that was recently held in Atlanta.
Invista und der Shanghai Chemical Industry Park (SCIP) haben eine Kooperationsvereinbarung unterzeichnet. Die Planung für eine 400.000 Tonnen schwere Adiponitril-(ADN)-Anlage umfasst eine geschätzte Investition von über 880 Millionen Euro.
Invista plans to add 40,000 tons of nylon 6,6 polymer capacity at its current 150,000-ton polymer plant at the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park (SCIP). Construction is targeted for mid-2019 and production would begin in 2020.
Invista hat angekündigt, bis 2023 in China eine Adiponitril-Großanlage erreichten zu wollen. Damit beabsichtigt der Hersteller die starke lokale Nachfrage nach der Nylon-6,6-Zwischenchemikalie zu befriedigen.
Invista announced that it is entering the final design phase for a $ 250 million project at its Victoria site to upgrade its manufacturing technology and increase production of adiponitrile (ADN), a key ingredient for nylon 6,6 fibers and plastics. Construction for the project is slated to get underway in the first quarter of 2019.
