Uhde Inventa-Fischer: PA6 Plant for Western Belarus
The plant engineering specialist Uhde Inventa-Fischer GmbH, Berlin, Germany, and JSC Grodno Azot PTC Khimvolokno of Belarus have commissioned a plant for the production of polyamide 6. The multiline plant is located in Grodno, Western Belarus, has a capacity of 91,000t/a and replaces seven lines that have been closed down. The new plant has enabled the customer to almost double its production capacity at the site from 140 to 260t per day. The majority of the pellets produced at the plant are processed to high-quality tire cord and carpet yarn at the spinning mill attached to the plant. The rest is used in the production of engineering plastics and for various other applications in the global market. Use of the newly produced pellets has reduced the waste quota at the mill by 30%.
