Synbra Receives European Polylactic Production Technology Innovation of the Year Award 2008

The 2008 European Polylactic Production Technology Innovation of the Year Award has been awarded to PURAC, Sulzer Chemtech and Synbra Technology for their joint development of a new polymerization process that can produce polylactic acid (PLA) from a biorenewable source which can then be converted into expanded PLA bead foam.

This new technology will soon be used in Synbra’s BioFoam® product, which will complement their already wide range of polystyrene foam products. The first parts are expected to be on the market by late 2009.
