INVISTA completes technology upgrade in Victoria, Texas

March 24/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- INVISTA has completed its project to bring the companys most advanced adiponitrile (ADN) technology to its site in Victoria, Texas, on schedule, as part of the sites regularly planned maintenance turnaround, said the company.

The site will manage a controlled start-up and ramp-up of ADN production.

ADN is a key ingredient for nylon 6,6 fibers and plastics used in industries like automotive production, electronics and electrical connectors. Applications also include automotive airbag fiber, specialty apparel fibers and high-performance coatings.

INVISTA's latest ADN technology has also been deployed at its site in Orange, Texas; at Butachimie in France (owned 50 percent by INVISTA and 50 percent by BASF), and will be deployed at its ADN plant at the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park in China, which is targeted to begin production in 2022. This technology brings improved product yields, reduced energy consumption, lower greenhouse gas emissions, enhanced process stability and reduced capital intensity, compared to existing technologies.

As per MRC, INVISTA Performance Technologies (IPT), a technology and licensing group of INVISTA, and Hengli Petrochemical (Huizhou) Co., Ltd, a subsidiary of the Hengli Group (Hengli), reached a licensing agreement for INVISTA's P8 technology for two purified terephthalic acid (TPA) production lines. ). These two lines will be built in Xiachun, Dai Bay, Huizhou City, Guangdong Province, China. Hengli operates five more TPA lines on Changxing Island, Dalian, each using INVISTA TPA technology with a total capacity of 12 million tonnes per year.

PTA is one of the main raw materials for the production of polyethylene terephthalate (PET).

According to MRC's ScanPlast, the estimated PET consumption in Russia increased by 3% in January 2021 compared to the same indicator a year earlier. In total, according to the results of the first month of this year in Russia, the total estimated consumption of PET amounted to 57,420 tonnes. 

INVISTA is one of the world's largest producers of polymer fibers, resins and intermediate raw materials for the production of synthetic polymer materials. The head office is located in Wichita (Wichita, Kansas, USA). The company is currently part of the Koch Industries concern.
