Wichita, Kan.-based Invista yesterday broke ground on its nylon 6/6 plant and nylon precursor hexamethylene diamine (HMD) plant in Shanghai.

The company said it’s a key milestone in its plans for integrated nylon 6,6 facilities in the China market.

The 150,000-ton polymer plant and the 215,000-ton HMD plant are expected to go on stream in 2015.

In addition, Invista plans to build a 300,000-ton nylon intermediate adiponitrile (ADN) facility.

Warren Primeaux, president of Invista Intermediates, added, “We believe that China is driving global nylon demand growth, and the use of nylon 6,6 intermediates and polymer in the region will be increasing
