SHANGHAI, CHINA: INVISTA recently said that it is moving forward on its plans to construct a manufacturing facility at the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park in China to meet the region’s demand for nylon 6,6 intermediates and polymer.

 

The company expects to begin construction of the plant in 2012 and commence production in phases beginning in 2014. “The construction of this plant had been temporarily delayed due to the global economic crisis, which slowed demand for nylon 6,6 intermediates and polymer. We are encouraged by the increasing demand for these products in China and the rest of Asia and are therefore moving forward with our plans,” said Warren Primeaux, President, INVISTA Intermediates.

 

The state-of-the-art plant will employ INVISTA’s latest advances in its proprietary butadiene-based technology to produce hexamethylene diamine (HMD) and adiponitrile (ADN), along with a variety of specialty chemicals and nylon 6,6 polymer. To leverage its global resources and experience, INVISTA has named Steve Kromer, an INVISTA senior vice president, as the leader of this core strategy for INVISTA. Kromer plans to establish his base of operations in China, pending residency approvals.
