daily upated news at Novamont opened new Origo-Bi production site News The official inauguration of Mater-Biopolymer, Novamont’s newly refurbished site for the production of its biodegradable biopolyester Origo-Bi, took place on 19 October, in Patrica, Italy. At the end of the preceding "The Regeneration continues" conference, the guests, including representatives of institutions, local administrations, universities and research and industrial partners of the Group, were given a tour of the plant to have an opportunity to take a closer look at the production process. In line with Novamont’s strategy of revitalizing sites that have become old and obsolete, the new Mater-Biopolymer has been converted from a former PET production plant into a modern facility for the production of biopolyesters based on renewable raw materials, using a more sustainable and low-emission process. The highly efficient plant is equipped with a complex system of utilities to minimize costs and waste through the recovery and enhancement of waste. In 2016, the site started the construction of a waste water distillation section from the process that made it possible to recover the tetrahydrofuran (THF) that is generated during the polymerization reaction, which, once distilled, is destined for the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, among other things.
