MINNETONKA, US/ MINNEAPOLIS, US: NatureWorks and BioAmber have announced the creation of AmberWorks, a joint venture to bring new performance bio-based polymer compositions to market. BioAmber owns polylactic acid and polybutylenes succinate (PLA/PBS) compound intellectual property and applies award-winning biotechnology and chemical processing to produce renewable chemicals that are cost competitive with their petrochemical equivalents. With the formation of the joint venture, NatureWorks plans to commercialize a new family of compounded Ingeo resin grades, and is immediately offering samples of developmental grades aimed at thermoforming and injection-moulding processes.

“The new product range being developed by the joint venture enables NatureWorks to broaden its existing product portfolio, allowing for bio-based product solutions in applications that were previously difficult to address. The properties of PLA and PBS are complementary and making Ingeo compounds using both materials will result in a broad and attractive property profile for a number of different applications,” said Marc Verbruggen, President and Chief Executive Officer, NatureWorks.
