Plantic to make starch-based resins


Plantic Technologies and National Starch plan to work together to establish a site in the United States to make Plantic-brand starch-based resins and sheet

The companies said on 21 December that they would relocate one of Plantic's existing manufacturing lines from Australia to Indianapolis.
The firms said the agreement will shorten the supply chain by integrating National Starch's raw material production with Plantic's manufacturing process, which will reduce the cost of the resins and allow the companies to collaborate more closely on research and development.
"This project represents the next phase of Plantic’s long-term manufacturing strategy," Plantic said in a news release. "It will enable Plantic’s partners that produce rigid sheet, injection moulding, blow moulding resins and flexible packaging resin to distribute them more effectively and at a lower cost."
Altona-based Plantic and Bridgewater-based National Starch already have a working relationship. In 2007, they signed a deal for National Starch to supply Plantic with high amylase corn starch, and for the companies to work together to develop create new and enhanced Plantic materials, with a goal of replacing non-biodegradable polymers.
