Invista Nylon Chemicals (China) held a ceremony to inaugurate the construction on its 400,000-ton/year adiponitrile (ADN) plant at the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park (SCIP). The more than seven billion RMB (more than $1 billion) investment will help meet the growing demand for nylon 6,6 chemical intermediates in China and the Asia Pacific region.

Wu Qing, the member of the standing committee of Shanghai municipal committee and vice mayor of Shanghai municipal government, congratulated Invista to reach this stage of development of the ADN project, and stated that Shanghai municipal government would continue to support the project and look forward to 2022 when the ADN facility would come into use.

The plant will deploy Invista’s most-advanced, energy-efficient ADN technology in China to satisfy the strong, local demand for ADN, an intermediate ingredient used in the production of nylon 6,6. When complete, the new ADN plant will integrate with Invista’s 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.

In addition, this ADN project will also help to cultivate local talents, bring more employment opportunities, and promote the development of relevant collaborative industries, to further enhance the economic strength of the local community.

“With support from all parties, Invista has successfully initiated the construction of ADN facility within ten months. The ADN project enriches the value chain of SCIP while accelerating the industrial upgrade of Shanghai chemical industry. SCIP will provide continuous services to ensure that the project will be completed as soon as possible, and the production will be started as soon as possible, to yield tangible benefits for the market,” Ma Jing, director general of Shanghai Chemical Industry Park administrative committee said.

“The growing demand for high-quality nylon products in China and the Asia-Pacific region, and the continued optimisation of the business environment in Shanghai have given us the confidence to continue investment here,” Gentry, Invista chairman and CEO said.

“We truly appreciate all the support from the government, our trusted partners and customers throughout the process, which has led to today’s important start of construction, and we are proud to say we are well on track to start ADN production in 2022. Once the ADN plant is completed, Shanghai will be home to the largest integrated nylon production facility in the world, from ADN through to high-performance polymers,” Redinger, vice president, Invista Nylon Intermediates Asia Pacific said.
