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.

Victoria/USA — The new technology, developed and in use at the facility in Orange, Texas, brings improved product yields, reduced energy consumption, lower greenhouse gas emissions, enhanced process stability and reduced capital intensity, compared to existing technologies, the company claims. According to the manufacturer, these improvements in performance have enabled the Orange facility to set production volume records since deployment in 2014.

This investment in Victoria comes on the heels of an announcement last September, where the company and its joint venture partner, Solvay, decided to deploy this technology at the Butachimie joint venture in France. Invista annpounced that it has also received strong interest from customers and others in the value chain seeking to participate in building a new ADN plant in China. The new ADN technology is the result of more than $ 40 million in research and development spanning four years on two continents.
