Uhde Inventa-Fischer to construct a polyamide 6 plant in China  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Uhde Inventa-Fischer (Berlin, Germany and Domat/Ems, Switzerland; www.uhde-inventa-fischer.com) and Changle Highsun Synthetic Fiber Technology Co. have signed a contract for the supply of a polymerization plant to produce high-performance polyamide 6 for textile applications. The multi-line plant will have an overall production capacity of 180,000 metric tons per year and will be located at the customer’s headquarters in Binhai Industrial Zone, Changle City, Fujian Province, China. Operation of the plant will be based on Uhde Inventa-Fischer’s patented, state-of-the-art High-Performance Polyamide 6 technology (HPPA) for the production of full-dull, semi-dull and bright chips. A further technological highlight of the plant will be the cost-effective, feedstock-saving Overproportional Refeeding technology (OPRP) developed by Uhde Inventa-Fischer. This process allows the caprolactam extract generated by all production lines to be fed back to a single polymerization line. Uhde Inventa-Fischer’s scope of supplies includes the know-how license, the formulae for the high-performance additives, the basic engineering, the supply of all relevant equipment, supervision of the erection activities and the commissioning management.…
