NatureWorks plans to sell a range of polymer-grade lactides

18-Mar-10
NatureWorks LLC will now offer for sale a range of polymer-grade lactides. Produced from lactic acid, these value added intermediates are used to produce Ingeo™ biopolymer, the first commercial-scale biopolymer that comes 100% from annually renewable resources instead of oil. Ingeo lactide intermediates will be sold for use in polymer applications to support rapidly growing global demand the company continues to see for biobased Ingeo plastics and fibers. “And, while we expect interest in our lactides primarily from specialty polymer producers, we welcome the opportunity to collaborate in partnerships where we can consider new and tailored grades that will meet the market needs of tomorrow.” “Our offer to supply polymer-grade lactides is a significant step forward in supporting the end market’s growing desire for products with authentic eco-credentials that meet or exceed performance expectations,” said Marc Verbruggen, President and Chief Executive Officer of NatureWorks. “And, while we expect interest in our lactides primarily from specialty polymer producers, we welcome the opportunity to collaborate in partnerships where we can consider new and tailored grades that will meet the market needs of tomorrow.” Lactide partners may also take advantage of a new Ingeo licensee package. Under select terms, NatureWorks will supply access to trademarks and application patents needed to support and enable the wider adoption of Ingeo biopolymers.
