INVISTA continues advancement in China's ADN plant

Feb '20
Invista continues to make progress on its planned 400,000-ton adiponitrile (ADN) plant at the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park (SCIP). The $1.2 billion investment will help meet the growing demand for nylon 6,6 chemical intermediates in China and the Asia Pacific region. Invista is a major integrated fibre, resin, and intermediates company, based in the US.

In January 2020, the project obtained Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) approval and Safety Condition Review approval. Detailed engineering and procurement on the project are well underway, with awards already made for more than 90 per cent of process equipment. Invista plans to begin construction on the project this year and start production in 2022, according to a media statement by Invista.

When complete, Invista’s new ADN plant will integrate with its existing HMD and polymer facilities to directly supply domestic customers with the key building blocks to produce nylon 6,6 and other high-value products in China and throughout the Asia Pacific region. These products are used for the automobile industry, electrical, and electronic industry and many other consumer and industrial applications—contributing to the overall quality of life by enabling lightweight, heat-resistant, and durable designs.

Invista’s latest ADN technology brings improved product yields, reduced energy consumption, lower greenhouse gas emissions, enhanced process stability, and reduced capital intensity compared to existing technologies.

“We are confident about China’s demand growth and continue to advance our investment at SCIP. By our estimates, China could be the world’s largest consumer of nylon 6,6 in the next few years, and we believe it’s important to serve China from China to realise the full growth potential. We will continue our efforts to satisfy the strong local and regional demand for high-quality nylon products,” Kyle Redinger, vice president Invista Intermediates Asia Pacific said.
