ADM joins with CIC Holdings and Chemanex to produce bio-based superabsorbent polymers

August 28, 2013 |

In Sri Lanka, Archer Daniels Midland Company has joined with CIC Holdings and Chemanex PLC in a joint venture to build and operate a processing facility near Colombo, Sri Lanka, to manufacture bio-based superabsorbent polymers. These products are commonly used in food packaging, personal-care products and various industrial applications.

ADM will be the majority owner of the venture and will market the plant’s production of ADM’s BioSAP brand superabsorbents.  The BioSAP produced at the plant will be derived from starches obtained from agricultural feedstocks. Superabsorbent polymers, or SAPs, are traditionally produced from petroleum derivatives.
