SINGAPORE (ICIS)--US INVISTA expects to start up a 215,000 tonne/year hexamethylene diamine (HMDA) plant at the Shanghai Chemical Industrial Park in China in 2015, a company source said on Monday.
The company has received the environmental impact assessment (EIA) approval from the Shanghai Environmental Protection Bureau and it has fully authorised the construction of the plant, according to a statement of the company released during the weekend.
This marks a significant milestone for INVISTA’s planned investments to create an integrated nylon 6,6 intermediates and polymer asset in the region.
However, the source did not provide the exact timeline of the construction and the financial details.
When plant comes on line, INVISTA’s global HMDA 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 (PU), the statement said.
INVISTA is a world leader in nylon intermediates and fibres.
