Expanding bioplastic collaboration

The chemical/plastic industry seems to be opening more and more to bioplastics collaboration as seen with the recent news from Gevo and Toray on bio-PET (polyethylene terephthalate) and today with Avantium and Solvay's announcement to jointly develop green engineering plastics.

Gevo announced on June 27 that it has successfully produced 100% renewable-based PET using its isobutanol to make paraxylene (PX) in collaboration with Toray Industries. For more about the chemical chain to produce bio-PET, see the blog's post on June 15.
