NatureWorks pulls out the checkbook for biopolymer investment

July 13, 2011 |

In Nebraska, NatureWorks reported a major capital investment project at its Blair manufacturing facility for the production of new grades of high-performance Ingeo biopolymers as well as a new generation of lactide intermediates. Samples of the new polymers and lactide intermediates will be available next year with commercial sales commencing by 2013.

NatureWorks states their  new materials, such as a new Ingeo grade for injection molding will contribute to lower molded part cost through faster cycle times and higher production rates. Their fiber and nonwoven products made from the new Ingeo grade will have reduced shrinkage and improved dimensional stability.
