Victoria, Texas -- Invista recently entered the final design phase of its $250 million plan to update its Victoria, Texas, production facility, which will help the company increase production of adiponitrile (ADN), a key ingredient in nylon 6,6 fibers and plastics. This technology upgrade will not only help increase product yield, but reduce energy consumption while lowering greenhouse gas emissions. Construction is slated to begin in first quarter of 2019.

“We are excited about the technology upgrades for several reasons, including the opportunity for a positive impact on our Antron fiber life cycle analysis, while improving our ability to meet the needs of our customers,” said Maggie Bidlingmaier, vice president of surfaces for Invista.
