Penford, Novomer ink pact for bio-based packaging R&D

January 25, 2012 |

In Colorado, Penford and Novomer have into a Joint Development Agreement to accelerate the development and commercialization of innovative Starch‐Polypropylene Carbonate polymer composites.

Unmodified starch use has been limited due to inherent performance characteristics but has long been targeted as a cost effective, renewable material for a broad range of packaging applications. When modified, specialty starches can be compatible with other polymers to extend the use and modify the properties of those polymers for targeted uses.
