Solvay invests in bio-based PA 6,10

Last week, France-based chemical firm Solvay (through its Polyamide & Intermediates business) announced its plans to invest in a polyamide 6,10 production unit at the Saint-Fons Belle-Etoile site in Lyon in order to "better serve customers seeking for more eco-friendly solutions."

No other information was given such as how much PA 6,10 will be produced in the new unit.
