In Georgia, Meredian Holdings Group (MHG) and BASF met last week to discuss next steps in a series of initiatives as MHG produces its biodegradable plastic. BASF is the world’s leading chemical company. MHG expects their facility, which produces 100% biodegradable plastic, to be completed by mid-2015, in time for the next canola harvest.

“The meeting with BASF was very productive,” stated Dr. Paul Pereira. “Sustainability is crucial for the future and BASF is looking to develop more sustainable solutions to meet the demands of society. The biopolymers we produce can provide them with materials that will help them achieve their goals of developing more sustainable products that meet economic, environmental and social needs.”
