NatureWorks LLC is a company dedicated to meeting the world’s needs today without compromising the earth’s ability to meet the needs of tomorrow. NatureWorks LLC is the first commercial scale manufacturer and global supplier of polylactide biopolymer, which it markets under the Ingeo™ brand name. Ingeo biopolymers are derived from 100 percent annually renewable resources with performance and economics that compete with oil-based plastics and fibers. By replacing petroleum with a renewable plant-based feedstock, NatureWorks production of Ingeo uses significantly less non-renewable energy, and generates significantly lower CO2 emissions than all traditional oil based polymers. Compared to PET for example, Ingeo reduces fossil fuel usage by 47 % and greenhouse gas emissions by 59%. The environmental credentials are backed by a rigorous, peer reviewed, published eco-profile. The full 24-page eco-profile, as published in Industrial Biotechnology, as well as the reviews, are available on NatureWorks LLC’s website.
