Invista, a leading producer of chemical intermediates, polymers, and fibres, and its partner will deploy Invista’s most advanced ADN technology at the Butachimie joint venture in France. Owned by Invista and Solvay, Butachimie is the largest ADN facility in the world. ADN is a key intermediate for hexamethylenediamine, used by Invista to produce nylon 6,6.

The new technology will be implemented by retrofitting the existing facilities during a planned turnaround in the second quarter of 2019.

The new technology, already deployed and proven at Invista’s facility in Orange, Texas, extends Invista’s market-leading ADN technology in several aspects, including improved product yields, reduced energy consumption, lower greenhouse gas emissions, enhanced process stability and reduced capital intensity, compared to existing technologies.

Bill Greenfield, president, Invista Intermediates said, “The performance of this technology at Orange has exceeded our expectations and we look forward to the benefits that deployment at additional facilities will bring to the marketplace. Since beginning commercial operation of this technology in 2014, we’ve demonstrated improved yield, reliability and record production rates at Orange.”

Invista will also implement its latest-generation ADN technology at its nylon intermediates facility in Victoria, Texas, pending final internal and regulatory approvals. Implementation is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2020.

As the preferred supplier for ADN, Invista supports growth and innovation in the nylon industry by continually investing in research and development, including the continued improvement of its ADN technology. The new ADN technology is the result of more than $40 million in research and development spanning four years on two continents. (GK)
