Novamont to Double Biopolyester Production

On completing the acquisition of 100% of Mater-Biopolymer from the Mossi & Ghisolfi group in 2016, Novamont launched the second phase of the project to redevelop the Mater-Biopolymer plant in Patrica, Italy, doubling the production capacity of the Origo-Bi family of biopolyesters, used to improve the technical, economic and environmental properties of Mater-Bi biodegradable and compostable bioplastics.

In 2009, the Mater-Biopolymer plant in Patrica belonged to M&G, had two PET production lines and had stopped production on one line. From 2009, a partnership enabled Novamont to start working on gradually converting this line to its technology. In 2011, the first continuous plant for production of Origo-Bi – biodegradable polyesters obtained from monomers from vegetable oils – was inaugurated. It has since become a flagship plant and a link to the Novamont biorefinery. By the end of the first quarter of 2018, when the process to convert the second line will be completed, and taking full advantage of the technological advances made possible by the experience gained from the first line, Novamont will double production capacity of the Origo-Bi biopolyester range, from 50,000 to 100,000 tonnes per year and achieving a higher content of renewable raw materials.
