Invista announced the deployment of their latest ADN technology at the Butachimie joint venture in France. The facility is owned by Invista, Solvay, Butachimie and is the largest ADN plant in the world.

Wichita/USA — The new technology will be implemented by retrofitting the existing facilities during a planned turnaround in the second quarter of 2019.

According to the company, the implementation of the technology at their plant in Orange, USA, has exceeded their expectations. “Since beginning commercial operation of this technology in 2014, we’ve demonstrated improved yield, reliability and record production rates at Orange,” said Bill Greenfield, president, Invista Intermediates.

The company will also implement its latest-generation ADN technology at its nylon intermediates facility in Victoria, Texas, pending final internal and regulatory approvals. Implementation is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2020.

In China, the company has received strong interest from customers and others in the value chain seeking to participate in building a new ADN plant at the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park, where the manufacturer opened a 215,000-ton hexamethylene diamine (HMD) plant and a 150,000-ton polymer plant in 2016. The company is assessing this approach.
