Progress continues on China ADN project as piling nears completion
In the weeks since the groundbreaking ceremony in June, progress continues for the INVISTA Nylon Chemicals (China) Co., Ltd., adiponitrile (ADN) project at the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park (SCIP). As shown in the photos, construction of roads and temporary facilities continues at the worksite. Additionally, piling is nearing completion, which will be soon followed by excavation for foundations and the concrete foundations being poured.
Once complete, the more than $1 billion USD (more than 7 billion RMB) 400,000-ton/year ADN plant will help meet the growing demand for nylon 6,6 chemical intermediates in China and the Asia Pacific region.
