The Foundation’s initiative is designed to help businesses identify sustainable paths to plastics use and harness the full potential of plastics innovation.
Completion of front-end engineering and recent project approval from the Thailand Board of Investment put the new Ingeo biopolymer manufacturing complex on schedule to open in 2024
Global bioplastic production capacity is expected to increase to 4.8 billion lb by 2024, driven by OEMs and brand owners steadily converting applications to these “green” materials. If you’re looking to supply compounds to meet this demand, here are some key processing considerations you need to know.
KNOW HOW: EXPERT ADVICE
Though often criticized, MFR is a very good gauge of the relative average molecular weight of the polymer. Since molecular weight (MW) is the driving force behind performance in polymers, it turns out to be a very useful number.
