Invista gets EIA approval for hexamethylene diamine plant in China

SHANGHAI, CHINA: Invista has received Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) approval from the Shanghai Environmental Protection Bureau for a 215,000 tonne per year hexamethylene diamine (HMD) plant at the Shanghai Chemical Industrial Park. Invista has fully authorized construction of the plant and expects to commence production in 2015. This marks a significant milestone for Invista’s planned investments to create an integrated nylon 6,6 intermediates and polymer asset in the region.

When production comes on line, Invista’s global HMD enterprise will be well-positioned to serve the rapidly growing Asia Pacific markets for a variety of nylon 6,6 applications, as well as high performance polyurethanes.

“This new plant will give Invista and its customers a significant competitive advantage. With new local production, the plant will facilitate the growing needs of our Asia businesses and strengthen our position in the region as supplier of choice,” said Steve Kromer, Senior Vice President, responsible for implementation of integrated nylon 6,6 intermediates investment strategy in Asia, Invista.
