Grodno Khimvolokno to use Uhde PA-6 technology
18
May '09
Uhde Inventa-Fischer and Grodno Khimvolokno signed a contract in October 2008 for the delivery of a polyamide-6 plant. The plant will have an annual capacity of 91,000 metric tons; it will produce polyamide-6 chips for tire cord, BCF and engineering plastics.

The plant will use Uhde Inventa-Fischer's proven PA-6 technology in combination with Overproportional Refeeding. These technologies optimize the yield of the raw material caprolactam.

The plant is state of the art and will be essentially emissions-free. This very modern plant operates using a combination of the refeeding technology with other energy-saving measures. It will produce a first-class product at minimum operating costs.

Uhde Inventa-Fischer's scope of supply and services includes the licence, the basic and detail engineering, supply of all equipment including all apparatuses and the complete piping, supervision of the erection and commissioning activities, the commissioning itself and the training of all operating personnel. Start-up of the plant is planned for 2010.

Grodno Khimvolokno is the leading producer of man-made fibers from polyamide-6 in Belarus. This new plant strengthens Grodno Khimvoloko's position in the market. At the same time Grodno Khimvoloko broadens its product portfolio to include chips for engineering plastics that will be produced in the new plant.

Grodno factory of synthetic fiber was put into operation in 1978. At that time production capacities of the enterprise allowed to produce 8 500 t of chemical fibers and yarns. Today production capacities of the enterprise allow producing more than 50 000 t of polyamide-6 and more than 35 000 t of chemical fibers and yarns.
