INVISTA to build new AND, HMD & nylon 6,6 facility in China

May '07
INVISTA has signed a letter of intent for investment and transfer of land use rights to build a production complex at the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park that could serve the region's demand for nylon 6,6 intermediates and polymer.

The agreement is the next step for INVISTA as it proceeds with the project it announced in September to construct state-of-the-art facilities in Asia to meet the region's growing demand for adiponitrile (ADN), hexamethylene diamine (HMD), nylon 6,6 polymer, and a variety of specialty intermediate chemicals.

The new, world-scale production complex will deploy INVISTA's advanced, proprietary butadiene-based ADN technology. It would be the first facility of its kind to be built in Asia and would help fulfill the region's demand growth, especially the emerging needs of Chinese consumers.

“Building this new facility is part of our strategy to quickly expand INVISTA's nylon 6,6 intermediates and polymer capabilities globally to serve our growing markets' needs,” said Warren Primeaux, president of INVISTA Intermediates.

“This is a significant and unique project; it will be not only the first plant of its kind in Asia but also the first brand-new facility built worldwide in 25 years.”

Engineering and design work has begun for the new complex, which is expected to start up beginning in 2010. Together with existing INVISTA operations around the world, the facility would comprise two-thirds of the world's production capacity of ADN and HMD, the chemical precursors to nylon 6,6 polymer .
