Brand companies in bioplastic feedstock alliance

Brand companies such as the Coca-Cola Company, Danone, Ford, Heinz, Nestle, Nike, Procter & Gamble and Unilever have joined the World Wildlife Fund to launch the Bioplastic Feedstock Alliance (BFA). Many of these companies, by the way, are here at Ecochem conference talking about their experience in the bioplastic area. I have already heard presentations from Nestle, Nike and Coca-Cola. I have yet to hear from Procter & Gamble.

According to the press release announced yesterday, the primary focus of BFA is to guide the responsible selection and harvesting of feedstocks such as sugarcane, corn, bulrush (? I am not familiar with this one), and switchgrass that are used to make plastics. BFA intends to bring together leading experts across various industries and organizations to help guide the evaluation and sustainable development of bioplastic feedstocks.
