Principal Scientist, NatureWorks LLC
Aman Kulshrestha has a synthetic chemist background from PhD and postdoctoral work. She worked on impurity profiling in a pharmaceutical industry for 2 years and has been with NatureWorks for over 5 years. Aman enjoys leading project teams with focus on both process and product related developments. She is interested in evaluating alternative chemistries to improve polymer manufacturing process and diversify product portfolio. She actively seeks training on polymer processing and rheology to assist her role in developing new processes to improve polymer properties such as melt strength, adhesion, and surface energy.
Sustainability benefits of Ingeo are well known and have been commercially leveraged in a range of applications. NatureWorks has shown that surface energy of Ingeo can be tuned to provide hydrophobic as well as hydrophilic properties. Hydrophilic fabrics have been designed to provide superior fluid management and enhanced durability over typical incumbents. Combination of hydrophilic performance and other unique features of Ingeo delivers skin health benefits desired in Absorbent Hygiene Products (AHP). Our latest findings show that finally it is possible to integrate sustainability into high performance disposable solutions.
