ERJ staff report (DS)
Shanghai, China --Invista said it has revived 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 is currently engaged in project engineering, which will include an environmental impact assessment to be completed by the end of 2011. Invista expects to begin construction of the plant in 2012 and commence production in phases beginning in 2014.
â€œThe 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 very encouraged by the increasing demand for these products in China and the rest of Asia and are therefore moving forward with our plans,â€ said Warren Primeaux, president, Invista Intermediates. â€œIn fact, the changes in timing have given us an opportunity to make significant advances in our technology, and we will be incorporating these into the new plant.â€
