Novamont invests in bio-FDCA pilot plant

November 7, 2019 |

In Italy, Novamont has now announced a 10 million-euro investment program as part of the expansion and diversification of its production plant in Terni, for the construction of a demonstration plant dedicated to a new monomer of vegetable origin derived from sugars (2.5 furandicarboxylic or FDCA).

FDCA is a platform for multiple applications and Novamont will use it as a raw material for the synthesis of polyesters and biodegradable and compostable biomaterials. This will enable the production of fifth-generation MATER-BI as well as a series of products with oxygen and carbon dioxide barrier properties for the food packaging sector.
