  1. 1. Dutch Grown Polymers2nd Generation GMO Free PLA
  2. 2. Polymer market NW Europe 2
  3. 3. NW European market polymer market size• Benelux, France, Germany, Uk & Italy use 25 million ton 8000 7000 6000 Italy 5000 France 4000 UK 3000 Germany Benelux 2000 1000 0 g on on g on on a ng iln in ffi si si si si si ld ld /ra tr u tr u ru tru es ou ou re t ex ex ex ex c m m fi b ro lm ire et n ow ile p PP tio e Fi er f w Bl ro Sh c th / je le /p O In ab pe C Pi• Source AMI Injection Moulding Industry March 2011
  4. 4. NW Europe Sheet Extrusion Market overview 2009• Addressable Extrusion & Thermoforming market high heat PLA is 1,8 million ton – Replace part of PS & PET applications• Addressable IM market of high heat PLA is 1,0 million ton – Replace part of PS & ABS applications• Source Publication AMI Guide Thermoforming edition 4 , 2011
  5. 5. Synterra® PLA
  6. 6. Synbra has the possibility to attain a pull role for Dutch biopolymer chain• NG PLA Biopolymers can outperform oilbased polymers • PLLA ,PDLA sc Blends , • Synterra IM; HDT 123oC Vicat A 1 kg load 160 °C• With non-GMO Dutch PLA production – Feedstock for foam, film , fibre and injection moulding.• But: Valorisation of biomass needed vision 35/70 kt• BioFoam subject to seperate business case. 6
  7. 7. Synbra PLA Production• Due to availability problems of PLA in 2007 and no dedicated quality for BioFoam : new investment for PLA polymerisation unit approved• Partners found : – Purac (NL) for raw materials : GMO free lactide – Sulzer (CH) for polymerisation technology• Possibility to produce 2nd Generation PLA : better performance & improved Carbon Footprint• Integrated raw material supply for BioFoam development• Spinoff Biofoam grade : Injection moulding grades – film grades- fiber grades – etc.• Broad range possible from amophous to stereo complex PLA : Synterra® is born 7
  8. 8. 8 C2C Validation• Awarded March 2011 Synterra Silver due to GMO free 8
  9. 9. Current situation• Synbra – Has a working PLA polymerisation plant of 5 kt – Used for • BioFoam • GMO free PLLA feedstock for biobased recipes • High heat thermoforming HDT A 100oC, HDT B 160oC – Coffee cups supplier ( under NDA) • High heat Injection moulding HDT A 100oC, HDT B 160oC – Haval high heat injection moulding Synterra IM – BIO-ABS
  10. 10. Biobased economy 1
  11. 11. Vision for the Netherlands• By concentrating on the bio-based economy• The Netherlands are on the threshold of a new golden age• All conditions are present – Excellent knowledge in universities and industry, chemical industry – Main Ports, harbors and suficient farming land – Active support by the gouvernment, Ministry of ELI. – R&D programs • BPM, Catch-Bio, BE-Basic – New Biobased hubs proposed in (SW) Netherlands. Nieuw Prinsenland – All European feedstocks are non GMO
  12. 12. Sustainability in the Netherlands • PLA most sustainable polymer • Sugar beat almost unbeatable • Bio-PE much less efficient than PLA
  13. 13. SW Netherlands Hub Observations • R&D and know-how is key. BPM a prime example . – WUR has right economy of scale • Can we grow crops in the current EU agropolicy? • Biggest challenge lies in valorisation • Growth is capital intensive, a new value chain model is needed – Topchemie revolving fund, MIA , partnerships Source: Vision for SW Netherlands 2011 ;Provincie Noord Brabant
  14. 14. Dutch Grown Biopolymers initaitive• Suikerunie, Purac and Synbra are exporing the creation of a 100% Dutch biopolymer production• Striving to green deal status with Economic affairs – Gvmnt will facilitate the development• Step by step back integration, 35/70 kt PLA, lactide, lactic acid , thick juice
