Morgan Impresores to distribute Ingeo™ biopolymer in Chile
Wednesday, July 28, 2010 NewsNatureWorks LLC and Morgan Impresores S.A. announced today that Morgan Impresores will begin distributing Ingeo biopolymer in Chile. Ingeo is an innovative plastic that is made from plants, not oil.
Since Morgan Impresores’ inception in 1987, it has been an innovator and leader in printing and packaging materials. This passion for innovation in addition to the company’s commitment to offer sustainable solutions to the Chilean market, moved the company to create Biologística, a business area focused on biopolymers.
“The broad distribution of Ingeo to Chilean manufacturers and brand owners will give companies new opportunities to develop more sustainable packaging, foodservice items, health and beauty aids, and semi-durable products,” say Biologística business managers Rodrigo Alfaro and Augusto Cubillos. “A number of these products will not only be for local consumption, but also for export to the United States, Mexico, the European Union, and China — major trading partners with Chile.
Biologística will be distributing the full Ingeo product family of resins. The company’s personnel will provide technical support to converters and enable them to seamlessly transition plastics made from non renewable petroleum to Ingeo.
The agreement with Morgan Impresores S.A. signals NatureWorks’ long-term commitment to supporting Latin American businesses as they move toward greater sustainability. Ingeo biopolymer made from renewable plant material, not oil, emits 60 percent less greenhouse gas and requires 48 percent less energy to manufacture into resin as compared to such plastics as PET.
