NatureWorks Announces Availability of New ABS Replacement Formulations
Apr 28 15
NatureWorks announced the availability of new ABS replacement formulations clearly demonstrating that its naturally advanced Ingeo resins have evolved into a practical and safe alternative for a broad range of styrenics in terms of performance, price, and eco profile. Three new formulated Ingeo injection molding offerings built on NatureWorks heat-stable technology platform offer a range of impact and modulus performance features in tandem with excellent chemical resistance. Two
formulations offer medium and high impact performance with high bio content. This makes them ideal for injection molding applications particularly those currently utilizing ABS. Additionally, a high modulus Ingeo formulation for profile extrusion applications maintains excellent impact performance and, just as with the injection molding offerings, this formulation's high stiffness (up to 50% higher flex modulus) offers opportunities for downgauging and materials savings.
NatureWorks and Natur-Tec Begin Sales of Ingeo in India
Dec 2 14
NatureWorks and Northern Technologies International Corporation announced the companies are collaborating on marketing and sales of Ingeo in India and surrounding countries, including Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. This is the first major sales initiative on the Indian subcontinent for Ingeo, a naturally advanced bio-plastic with a host of commercial uses including rigid and flexible packaging, foodservice ware, personal care products, textiles, in-home durable products, appliances and electronics, and the latest innovations in 3D printing. Initial sales and market development emphasis are focused on flexible films for packaging such items as food and branded consumer goods, paper-based packaging where a thin film of Ingeo provides barrier properties, rigid containers for such products as yogurt, and foodservice ware. Natur-Tec and NatureWorks will also be working with regulatory agencies on waste reduction demonstration projects.
DOE Awards $2.5 Million to NatureWorks to Transform Biogas into the Lactic Acid Building Block for Ingeo
Oct 30 14
The U.S. Energy Department's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Bioenergy Technologies Office announced a grant of up to $2.5 million to NatureWorks in support of an ongoing program that aims to sequester and use methane, a potent greenhouse gas, as a feedstock for the company's Ingeo(TM) biopolymers and intermediates. The grant supports an ongoing multi-year joint development program between NatureWorks and Calysta, with the specific goal of transforming, via a fermentation process, renewable biomethane into lactic acid, the building block for Ingeo. Ingeo naturally advanced bioplastics and intermediates are used worldwide in a host of consumer and industrial products. The research and development (R&D) collaboration with Calysta addresses NatureWorks' strategic interests in feedstock diversification and a structurally simplified, lower cost Ingeo production platform and leverages Calysta's Biological Gas-to-Chemicals(R) platform for biological conversion of methane to high value chemicals. For NatureWorks, methane could be an additional feedstock several generations removed from the simple plant sugars used in a lactic acid fermentation process at the NatureWorks Blair, Nebraska, Ingeo production facility.
