I am seeing a lot of consortiums being formed these days and I think that’s a great thing in the renewable chemicals sector.
Corbion is inviting users of PLA to join a consortium to accelerate the market introduction of PLA bioplastic resin from second generation feedstock. Second generation feedstocks are those which are not suitable for human consumption, and include plant-based materials like bagasse, corn stover, wheat straw and wood chips.
- Primary goal is to connect parties throughout the value chain to promote the commercialization of PLA bioplastics made from second generation feedstocks.
- Secondary goal is to investigate second generation feedstocks for other applications.
- Consortium meetings will take the format of an informal meet & greet
- To be held twice per year
- Members can inform each other on progress, plans and ambitions in the field of 2nd generation sugars, conversions, PLA, applications, markets,
- Provides a platform for parties to connect and develop projects under separate agreements between selected consortium members.
- Participation is free of charge and all participants bear their own costs,
- Your membership can be stopped at any time,
- Our member list will be public (no sharing of confidential information required, there will be no NDA required).
