Invista’s site in Orange, Texas, has set a 12-month production record for adiponitrile (ADN), a key ingredient for nylon 6,6 plastics and fibres. Invista is a producer of chemical intermediates, polymers, and fibres. The company’s advantaged technologies for nylon, spandex, and polyester are used to produce clothing, carpet, air bags, and other products.

“Since deployment of our most advanced ADN technology at the Orange site in 2014, the facility has consistently set production volume records. In today’s market, every pound is really important to our customers and the industry. I’m proud the team has continued this production trend through the third quarter of 2018 with another 12-month record,” Bill Greenfield, president, Invista Intermediates said in a press release.

The performance increases can be attributed to the company’s latest ADN technology, which was developed at Invista’s global R&D facilities and piloted at the Orange site where it has been deployed for nearly five years. The technology brings improved product yields, reduced energy consumption, lower greenhouse gas emissions, enhanced process stability, and reduced capital intensity, compared to existing technologies.

Invista is deploying its latest ADN technology in existing facilities and working to optimise production to increase yield even further. Since deployment in 2014, improvements in performance have enabled the Orange facility to set numerous production volume records. Butachimie, Invista’s joint venture with Solvay in France, has announced approval to deploy the latest technology in 2017. The project is scheduled to come online in 2019. Invista Victoria has announced a $250 million project at Victoria site to upgrade its manufacturing technology and increase production of ADN.

The company recently announced a new world-scale ADN plant that will be located in China. Engineering is underway for a minimum 300,000-ton plant at an estimated investment in excess of $1 billion. Construction is targeted for 2020 and production would begin in 2023. (GK)
