In this week's episode of Material Insights, Dow Chemical Co. has won almost $62 million in damages from Nova Chemicals Corp. in a lawsuit over polyethylene technology. Color concentrates maker Prime Colorants Inc. will increase production and hire more employees by the end of the year. Also, South Korea's SK Chemicals believes the key to surviving is to become much more efficient with existing fossil-fuel feedstocks and develop non-fossil fuel alternatives -- like making plastics from carbon dioxide. Plastics News senior reporter Frank Esposito leads you through this week in materials news.
