NatureWorks Doubles Capacity

July 8, 2009

Blair, NE site can now make 140,000 metric tons of Ingeo.

NatureWorks, a maker of broad portfolio Ingeo biopolymers made from plants, not oil, has doubled production to 140,000 metric tons at its Blair, NE manufacturing plant. The investment was the second improvement at the site in less than a year. In late 2008, the plant started a new manufacturing supply process to further lower carbon dioxide emissions and reducing the amount of energy needed to make Ingeo bioresins. As a result, the production of Ingeo emits less carbon dioxide and consumes less energy from courcing through manufacturing than the most commonly used petroleum-based plastics, including PET, PVC, polystyrene, polypropylene, low density polypropylene and polycarbonate.
