Highsun invests in new nylon-6 line in China

December 28/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- HSCC, also known as Highsun, is installing a polyamide 6 (PA6) film grade polymer line with a nameplate capacity of more than 70,000 tonnes/year at its site in Fuzhou, Fujian province, said Chemweek.

The line will include an integrated dry-blending system, enabling HSCC to produce a full range of differentiated PA6 polymers targeted at the film market, it said in a statement.

70,000-metric tons/year PA6 production line in Fuzhou will start operations in March 2021.

German chemical engineer Uhde Inventa-Fischer is the projects technology partner. Financial details were not disclosed.

As it was written earlier, in accordance with the agreement initially announced on June 10, 2019, Air Liquide has closed the sale of its subsidiary Air Liquide Fuzhou to Highsun Holding Group, the parent company of Fujian Shenyuan New Materials Co., Ltd.

Ethylene and propylene are feedstocks for producing PE and polypropylene (PP).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 1,760,950 tonnes in the first ten months of 2020, up by 3% year on year. Only high density polyethylene (HDPE) and linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) shipments increased. At the same time, PP shipments to the Russian market reached 978,870 tonnes in  January-October 2020 (calculated using the formula: production minus exports plus imports minus producers' inventories as of 1 January, 2020). Supply of exclusively of PP random copolymer increased.
