ORANGE, Texas (Nov. 7, 2018) – INVISTA’s site in Orange, Texas, set a 12-month production record for adiponitrile (ADN), a key ingredient for nylon 6,6 plastics and fibers.

“Since deployment of our most advanced ADN technology at the Orange site in 2014, the facility has consistently set production volume records,” said Bill Greenfield, president, INVISTA Intermediates. “In today’s market, every pound is really important to our customers and the industry. I’m proud the team has continued this production trend through the third quarter of 2018 with another 12-month record.”

The performance increases can be attributed to the company’s latest ADN technology, which was developed at INVISTA’s global R&D facilities and piloted at the Orange site where it has been deployed for nearly five years. The technology brings improved product yields, reduced energy consumption, lower greenhouse gas emissions, enhanced process stability and reduced capital intensity, compared to existing technologies.
