Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM) and Metabolix will open a commercial plant for PHA natural plastics in Clinton, Iowa in mid 2008. The plant, which is currently under construction, will initially produce 50,000 tons per year of ADM and Metabolix’s PHA plastics, which are based on sustainable, renewable resources. The new plant will use corn grind starch from an adjacent ADM wet corn mill as raw material for its PHA production.
