Ineos Nitriles to re-start 4th ACN reactor at Green Lake

Nov '15
In view of growing demand globally and other factors, Ineos Nitriles is going to re-start production on its 4th reactor at its Green Lake, Texas based Acrylonitrile (ACN) facility, it said in a press release.
 
The re-instatement of 4th reactor with 100,000 tonnes capacity will increase the company's total nameplate capacity to 545,000 tonnes per annum.
 
Despite extremely tough market conditions, Ineos Nitriles is convinced that a combination of long term advantaged US propylene, world leading technology and economies of scale will ensure that Green Lake will be able to compete globally, the release said.
 
At the recent IHS Conference in Singapore, Ineos Nitriles commercial director Gordon Adams, said, “The addition of significant production capacity in China has forced worldwide ACN operating rates down to less than 80 per cent, the lowest level since 2008. However, with its feedstock advantage, scale and leading technology, the Ineos Nitriles, Green Lake facility will be able to compete in the global market and as such we have decided to restart our 4th reactor to support the long term growth of our global customer base.” 
 
Ineos Nitriles operates four plants worldwide—two in North America (Texas and Ohio) and two in Europe (Germany and UK). Green Lake, based in Calhoun County, Texas is one of the largest and most efficient plants in the world. With the re-establishment of the 4th reactor, this plant will once again be capable of producing 545,000 tonnes of ACN per year. 
 
Acrylonitrile is used as a raw material for the production of synthetic fibres, carbon fibre, etc, which are used in a very diverse range of end use markets, including textiles. (RKS)
