Meredian Holdings Group Inc., “MHG”, a leading biopolymer manufacturer, today announced it will do business as Danimer Scientific, effective immediately. MHG’s updated corporate identity is a visual salute to their solid, steadfast origins as a biotechnology company committed to sustainability and the development of innovative bioplastic products that do not contribute to global pollution.
Danimer Scientific was originally formed in 2004 and provided sustainable polymer solutions by developing compostable and biodegradable plastic alternatives. Following many years of successful R & D, relationship building, and B-to-B launches of bioplastic products for use in consumer and business applications, the Company has decided to reenergize and emphasize the original corporate identity.
“The adoption of our founding name and logo marks a significant milestone as we dedicate ourselves to future product innovation and the development of global-scale solutions to plastic pollution,” stated CEO Stephen Croskrey. “The renewal of our corporate identity signals an exciting time for the company as we intensify our dedication to the development of dynamic biopolymer solutions, like our completely biodegradable PHA plastic for widespread commercial use.”
In 2007, the founders of Danimer Scientific acquired the intellectual property from Procter & Gamble, “P&G”, for NodaxTM PHA. NodaxTM PHA was created by the distinguished Dr. Isao Noda while at P&G and he is now a Member of the Board of Directors at Danimer Scientific. NodaxTM PHA possesses a full spectrum of physical properties that have been proven capable of replacing many short-term use petroleum-based plastics, for both performance and price.
Danimer Scientific’s NodaxTM PHA received OK Marine Biodegradable certification from Vinçotte International, the first such validation awarded to a biopolymer. The exciting biopolymer also has a total of six Vinçotte certifications and statements of aerobic and anaerobic compostability and biodegradability in soil, fresh water, salt water, and industrial and home compost.
Danimer Scientific currently operates two facilities with well over 200,000 square feet of state-of-the-art laboratory and manufacturing/testing space. Recently, the Company announced the appointment of their new Chief Executive Officer, Stephen Croskrey, who is pioneering the Company’s planned eightfold expansion of the current PHA biorefinery.
