ADM, LG Chem Cooperating on Bioplastics (Ind. Report)
ADM, LG Chem
Date: 2021-09-15
Chicago-headquartered Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) is reporting a memorandum of understanding with Seoul, South Korea-based LG Chem to explore US-based production of lactic acid for a wide variety of plant-based products, including bioplastics.

Under the agreement, the partners plan to launch a joint venture in early 2022 that would build, own and operate a U.S commercial-scale facility to produce high-purity corn-based lactic acid , followed by a second joint venture that would use lactic acid produced by the first joint venture to produce and commercialize polylactic acid (PLA), a plant-based, biodegradable plastic with commercial applications. The two companies will also cooperate in the joint development of technology for other biomaterials that can be applied in the biochemical and sustainability sector.

SK Innovation Considers Ditching US Battery Plants (Ind. Report)
SK Innovation
Date: 2021-03-29
South Korean battery maker SK Innovation reports it is considering pulling the plug on its $2.7 billion electric vehicle battery manufacturing plant and halting construction of a second battery manufacturing plant in Commerce City, Georgia, as well as other U.S. operations. Combined, the two facilities would have a combined production capacity of 20 gigawatt-hours a year, enough for 250,000 electric vehicles and create 2,600 jobs.

The company's position is in response the US International Trade Commission's February finding that SK had "misappropriated" 22 trade secrets from its rival LG Chem. The two firms have as yet been unable to come to a mutually agreeable compensation settlement for SK's "misappropriation.

The ITC, while slapping the firm with a 10-year business ban, has allowed SK Innovation a grace period of up to four years for it to continue supplying Volkswagen and Ford. (Source: SK Innovation, Korea Herald, 28 Mar., 2021) Contact: SK innovation, www.eng.skinnovation.com
