Total Corbion PLA 100kT milestone Total Corbion PLA’s plant in Rayong Thailand has, since its grand opening in 2019, earlier this summer reached a cumulative production volume of 100kT of Luminy PLA. The plant is now running at nameplate capacity in order to meet the ever-growing demand for PLA bioplastics. At the end of their useful life, PLA products can be mechanically or chemically recycled. The biodegradable and compostable functionalities of PLA make it the material of choice for a wide range of markets and applications, including fresh fruit packaging, food service ware, durable consumer goods, toys, and 3D printing. Total Corbion PLA opened their first PLA plant, with 75kTpa capacity, in Rayong, Thailand in 2019. Since that time, they have also announced their intention to build a second PLA plant with 100kTpa capacity in Grandpuits, France which will be the first of its kind in Europe. Simon Goldney, Plant Director at Total Corbion PLA, is proud of the achievement: “As with any new plant, the ramp-up phase is critical to reaching full capacity production, and we are extremely proud that our dedicated and passionate team in Thailand have reached this important milestone of 100kT cumulative PLA production.” François de Bie, Senior Marketing & Supply Chain Director at Total Corbion PLA recognizes the need for PLA bioplastics in the market: “We see a rapidly increasing demand from our customers and partners, whether that be supplying existing supply chains or seeding and supporting new development projects. We’ll be striving towards achieving the next 100kT in an even shorter timeframe and continuing to enable the circular economy even further.” MT Twelve and LanzaTech to produce polypropylene from CO 2 emissions Twelve’s carbon transformation technology converts CO 2 into materials that have up until now, mainly been made from fossil fuels. The company (headquartered in Berkely, California, USA) helps brands eliminate emissions by replacing the petrochemicals in their products and supply chains with CO 2 made carbon-negative chemicals and materials, as well as carbon-neutral fuels. LanzaTech’s (headquartered in Skokie, Illinois, USA) carbon recycling Pollution To Products technology uses nature-based solutions to produce ethanol and other materials from waste carbon sources. The partnership will bring together the two platform technologies to enable additional product development from CO 2 streams, representing just one of many pathways to scale carbon transformation solutions. “Polypropylene is a key material for essential medical supplies and for many products we rely on in our daily lives. Today, 100 % of new polypropylene in use worldwide is made from petrochemicals. We now have a way to produce this critical material from CO 2 and water instead of from fossil fuels, with no tradeoffs in quality, efficacy, or performance. Replacing all of the world’s fossil polypropylene production with CO 2 made polypropylene would reduce carbon emissions by an estimated 700 million tonnes per year or more,” said Twelve Chief Science Officer, Etosha Cave. “By harnessing biology, we can leverage the power of nature to solve a very modern problem. The overabundance of CO 2 in our atmosphere has pushed our planet into a state of emergency. We need all carbon transformation solutions to turn this liability into an opportunity, keeping fossil resources in the ground, and our climate safe for everyone,” said LanzaTech CEO, Jennifer Holmgren. To pursue the partnership, Twelve and LanzaTech have been awarded a USD 200,000 grant from Impact Squared, a USD 1.1 million fund that was designed and launched by British universal bank Barclays and Unreasonable, a catalytic platform for entrepreneurs tackling some of the world’s most pressing challenges. With the Impact Squared grant, Twelve and LanzaTech are taking a collaborative approach to reduce the fossil fuel impact of essential products.” MT News daily updated News at Picks & clicks Most frequently clicked news Here’s a look at our most popular online content of the past two months.

Using Archer Daniels Midland’s rigid starch-based molecule called isoide, they are developing a new generation of polymer materials that can be used not only in BPA(Bisphenol A)-free packaging but also in engineering applications such as automotive and electronics. bioplastics MAGAZINE [05/21] Vol. 16 5
