INVISTA Victoria achieves one million safe work hours on ADN retrofit project
INVISTA’s site in Victoria, Texas, has surpassed one million work hours on the adiponitrile (ADN) retrofit project with no Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recordable injuries. This milestone underscores INVISTA’s ongoing commitment and dedication to compliance and environmental health & safety.
The pre-startup equipment testing has started on schedule for this major capital investment, and INVISTA anticipates all pre-turnaround construction will be completed later this year with additional ADN capacity coming online in early 2021 following a regularly scheduled maintenance outage.
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.
