Development of Fully Renewable Biomass PET Polymer

July 12, 2011 · Filed Under Clean Tech, Green Tech · Comments Off on Development of Fully Renewable Biomass PET Polymer 

In a joint effort by Toray Industry of Japan and Gevo of U.S, the company’s have successfully developed a fully renewable biomass based Polyethylene Tetraphthalate (PET) Polymer. Geno’s share of effort in developing this fully renewable PET was in converting isobutanol, which was produced from biomass using genetically modified microorganisms to para-xylene through use of conventional chemical process. To complete the development of this Biomass driven PET, Toray applied a new technology and PET polymerization as well as film production technology to terephthalic acid which was synthesized from Gevo’s biomass driven para-xylene and commercially available and renewable mono ethylene glycol (MEG) as raw materials.

Development of Industry Biggest Bio-Based Plastic to be used for Exterior of Office equipment

October 19, 2010 · Filed Under Clean Tech, Green Tech · 1 Comment 

Canon Inc. and Toray Industry made an announcement on successful development of world largest bio-based plastic part to be used in exterior of multifunction office equipment systems. Canon will be using the part in its multifunction office systems for production printing. Bio-based plastic usually suffers from moldibility and other flow characteristics, plus stiff requirements for mechanical strength and high level of flame retardant, making them difficult to be used in exterior parts.
