Invista will seine 150.000-Tonnen-Nylon-6,6-Polymeranlage im Shanghai Chemical Industry Park (SCIP) um 40.000 t aufstocken. Das Unternehmen erwartet eine steigende Nachfrage in Asien. Der Bau ist für Mitte 2019 geplant, die erweiterte Produktion soll 2020 beginnen.
Invista Technologies and Ariha Chemicals have agreed upon licensing of Invista’s R²R Technology. “Ariha is excited to be embarking on this new venture that could benefit its environmental and variable cost performance by using the R²R Technology from Invista.”
When the world’s first nylon manufacturing plant started production in Seaford in 1939, there were only a few applications for the new “miracle fiber.” As the site celebrates its 75th anniversary this year, nylon-based products—from fabric for military uniforms and other clothing, to engineered polymers for automotive applications, to fibers in carpet and air bags—are now integrated into daily life for people around the world.
Invista plans to invest more than US $100 in a new Lycra Fibre production facility in Paulínia in the Brazilian state of São Paulo. The new production plant is expected to open in late 2012 with construction work beginning immediately.
