Polypropiolactone is a biodegradable polymer that has attractive mechanical and physical properties that may make it suitable for packaging and thermoplastic applications. The polymer is stable and easily transportable.
Novomer Can Produce PPL at Different Molecular Weights
Novomer is exploring opportunities whereby the polymer will first be used in a packaging/thermoplastic application, collected and then “upcycled” into glacial acrylic acid. When polypropiolactone is produced from bio-based feedstocks, the opportunity exists to produce not only a carbon-negative diaper but possibly an “upcycled” carbon negative diaper.
