CJ Biomaterials, NatureWorks sign deal to commercialize novel biopolymer solutions

November 17, 2022 |

In Massachusetts, CJ Biomaterials and NatureWorks have signed an agreement to collaborate on the development of sustainable materials solutions based on CJ Biomaterials’ PHACT Biodegradable Polymers and NatureWorks’ Ingeo biopolymers.

CJ Biomaterials is a division of South Korea-based CJ CheilJedang and a producer of polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA)

The two companies will develop high-performance biopolymer solutions that will replace fossil-fuel based plastics in applications ranging from compostable food packaging and food serviceware to personal care, films, and other end products.

The initial focus of this joint agreement will be to develop biobased solutions that create new performance attributes for compostable rigid and flexible food packaging and food serviceware.

CJ Biomaterials and NatureWorks plan to expand their relationship beyond cooperative product development for packaging to create new applications in the films and nonwoven markets.
