New Plant Generic Fiber Classification For PLA

New Plant, Generic FiberClassification For PLACargill Dow, Minnetonka, Minn., recently completed construction of a polylactide (PLA) polymer plant in Blair, Neb. The plant can produce 300 million pounds of PLA per year when running at full capacity.In related news, a new designation from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) now classifies PLA fibers as a generic fiber type. For a fiber to be classified as PLA, it must be a synthetic fiber manufactured from polylactic acid or a polylactate derived from naturally occurring sugars. Cargill Dow will continue to use the NatureWorks trade name for its proprietary fiber.March 2002
