Corn and potato). The bio-based PET is useful for making a bio-based container for packaging food products, soft drinks, alcoholic beverages, detergents, cosmetics, pharmaceutical products, and edible oils. Coca-Cola’s current renewable bottle, named PlantBottle™, is made by converting sugarcane into ethylene glycol, which represents 30 wt% of the total composition of PET [68]. But deriving terephthalic acid from nature has been much more difficult. 27 Poly(ethylene terephthalate). 28 Poly(ethylene furanoate).

Commercializes QPAC® 25, a PEC, which is used as binder or sacrificial material. Novomer also commercializes also PEC in two application markets: as a traditional polymer for packaging and as a clean burning sacrificial material for high-end processing, including ceramic and electronic processing. 32). PPC is a biodegradable 31 amorphous polymer because of the APC ester structure on its backbone [79]. High molecular weight PPC has been predominantly synthesized using zinc carboxylate catalysts to copolymerize propylene oxide and CO2.

High molecular weight PPC has been predominantly synthesized using zinc carboxylate catalysts to copolymerize propylene oxide and CO2. Transition metal complexes have been developed for the copolymerization of carbon dioxide and epoxides (2002, US2002082363 A1, CHANGCHUN INSTITUTE OF APPLIED CHEMISTRY CHINESE ACADEMY OF SCIENCES; 2003, CN1436803 A, CHANGCHUN APPLIED CHEMISTRY), but such complexes have not been fully exploited and/or optimized in the preparation of improved PPC materials. PPC was the focus of intense investigation and several companies have explored applications for the material as a commodity thermoplastic.
