Commercializing Biopolymers

DaniMer Scientific
Meridian, GA

DaniMer Scientific focuses on the use of sustainably produced, renewable resources to improve people’s lives and work. One of the company’s goals is to reduce our planet’s dependence on petroleum, enabling people and communities to benefit from environmentally friendly products.

Challenge

Develop commercially viable biopolymers and then produce them economically at scale.

Solution

With ENTEK’s help in the extrusion lab, DaniMer has developed novel biopolymers such as RHMA, ReNew Film Resins, and Energy Stimulation Polymers for the oil service industry. ENTEK engineered the material handling and extrusion systems required to produce these products on an industrial scale.

Result

Since 2007, when DaniMer initially met with ENTEK and purchased their first twin-screw extruder for compounding biopolymers, the company has grown dramatically. In addition to building a new state-of-the-art processing facility in Bainbridge, DaniMer has increased production and purchased several high-output ENTEK machines for producing large volumes of biopolymers.

“We are very pleased with our ENTEK machines and the impeccable service from the ENTEK team,” stated Scott Tuten, Senior Vice President.
