NatureWorks new facility in Thailand NatureWorks (Plymouth, MN, USA) the world’s leading manufacturer of low-carbon polylactic acid (PLA) biopolymers made from renewable resources, has selected TTCL Public Company Limited (Bangkok, Thailand) as the general contractor for procurement, construction, commissioning, and startup support services for their new Ingeo PLA manufacturing complex in Thailand. The new facility is designed to be fully integrated and will include production of lactic acid, lactide, and polymer. Located on the Nakhon Sawan Biocomplex (NBC) in Nakhon Sawan Province, the manufacturing site will have an annual capacity of 75,000 tonnes of Ingeo biopolymer and will produce the full portfolio of Ingeo grades. In June 2022, site preparation for the new manufacturing facility at the NBC was completed and NatureWorks signed an agreement with Sino Thai Engineering and Construction PCL (Bangkok, Thailand) to begin early-works construction for piling, underground piping, stormwater management, and tank foundations. Currently underway, the early-works construction progress keeps the completion of the facility on schedule for the second half of 2024. “We are pleased to see the continued progress on the construction of our second Ingeo manufacturing complex that will help us address the increasing global market demand for sustainable materials”, said Steve Bray, VP of Operations at NatureWorks. “With the selection of TTCL as our general contractor, we are looking forward to leveraging their expertise in executing large, highly technical capital projects in Thailand”. NatureWorks expects to hold a cornerstone laying ceremony to honour the progress of site construction in February 2023. MT Neste, Idemitsu Kosan, CHIMEI Corporation, and Mitsubishi Corporation join forces Neste (Espoo, Finland) Idemitsu Kosan (Tokyo, Japan), CHIMEI (Tainan City, Taiwan), and Mitsubishi Corporation (Tokyo, Japan) have agreed to build a renewable plastics supply chain utilizing biobased hydrocarbons (Neste RE ) for the production of styrene monomer (i.e. bio-SM), and its mass balanced renewable plastics derivatives including acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (i.e. bio- ABS*). The bio-SM production in Japan and the renewable plastics production in Taiwan will mark the first of such production in each country, and they are planned to take place in the first half of 2023. Neste, the world’s leading producer of renewable and circular feedstock for the polymers and chemicals industry uses, will provide Neste RE to Idemitsu Kosan, the biggest SM manufacturer in Japan. For this collaboration, Neste RE is produced from 100 % biobased raw materials such as waste and residues and its use can significantly reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions compared with conventional fossil feedstock use. Idemitsu Kosan will then produce bio-SM based on the mass balance method and supply it to Chimei, the biggest ABS manufacturer in the world for its renewable plastics production. Mitsubishi Corporation will be coordinating the collaboration between the value chain partners to develop the renewable products’ market. Through developing an even stronger partnership and closer collaboration than conventionally seen in plastics value chains, the companies are introducing new renewable contents into the value chain to enable plastic production where fossil feedstock has been replaced with renewable feedstock. With this, the companies are contributing to the plastics industry GHG emission reduction targets and the transition towards a low-carbon emission society. MT *) ABS resin is a thermoplastic polymer made from acrylonitrile, butadiene, and styrene monomer, and given its properties of impact resistance, toughness, and rigidity, it is used across different sectors which include automobile, electronics, and toys. | | 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.
