US companies stepping up biopolymer production
from Plastics News
The future finally may be arriving for biopolymers — products that have been seen as long on potential, but short on results. "We're selling more than 100 million pounds [per year] right now, and we just doubled capacity," NatureWorks President and CEO Marc Verbruggen said March 10, at the Global Plastics Environmental Conference in Orlando. GPEC was hosted and organized by the Society of Plastics Engineers. Verbruggen added that NatureWorks' PLA biopolymers are used in more than 20 commercial applications that are available at 70,000 retail sites.
