Solvay invests in adipic acid production in Chalampe, France

LYON, FRANCE: Solvay Polyamide & Intermediates is investing in the adipic acid production line at its industrial plant in Chalampe, France. The intended capital investment aims at reinforcing cost leadership by significantly reducing the site’s energy consumption. The investment will result in a further improvement of the adipic acid manufacturing process contributing to Polyamide & Intermediates’ strategic positioning.

“This new process will result in an 8MW reduction of energy consumption per year as well as 11,000 tonne reduction in CO2 emissions. The intervention, which will require a complete shutdown of the manufacturing process, will take place in the fourth quarter of 2013 and will last about one month,” said Christophe Bertrand, Industrial Director, Polyamide & Intermediates, Solvay.
