Last month might be a holiday season but there are definitely lots of green chemicals that were still launched.

1. Arkema's additive for biopolymers - Arkema has added a new metal release additive to its Biostrength® line of additives for biopolymers. The additive enables more consistent processing of polylactic acid plastic.
