NatureWorks picks Jacobs for Asia plant project

Polylactic acid (PLA) producer NatureWorks has chosen engineering firm Jacobs to provide its services for NatureWorks' new Ingeo (tm) production plant in Southeast Asia.  Thailand is currently NatureWorks' preferred plant location for its second facility.

Under the terms of the contract, Jacobs is providing front-end engineering design including major equipment design.  The companies did not mention capacity for the Asia plant but it was expected that it will be the same scale as NatureWorks' 150 ktpa Ingeo(tm) capacity in its flagship Blair, Nebraska, facility.
