NatureWorks Partners With CL Chemical Fibers

NatureWorks LLC, Minnetonka, Minn., has signed an Ingeo™ Master License Agreement this year with China-based CL Chemical Fibers — the first licensed Ingeo spunbond producer offering a full range of 100-percent Ingeo spunbond fabrics.

Ingeo biopolymer is made entirely from renewable plant resources. Its production uses 65-percent fewer fossil fuel resources than traditional polymers and reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 80 to 90 percent, according to NatureWorks.

“Now, with Ingeo, we can offer the reality of distinctive products that can deliver more relevant attributes as well as high performance to our customers who are looking for ways to help protect the environment,” said Sammy Chen, global sales director, CL Chemical Fibers, which will manufacture Ingeo spunbond roll goods for end-use applications ranging from hygiene and medical to those that require heavier-weight fabrics, such as agriculture and landscaping.
