Those are the key words...
This is the 3D connection - MBLX doesn't make the filament -but it makes the material that makes the best filament ... Just need to hear news on who is selling it.
Normey - I certainly hope so... but what I am coming to realize is that the mind plays tricks on us to help us stay sane and so it finds needles in haystacks and silver lining in dark clouds. I've come to realize the true heartache of depression is not the sadness but the fact that the mind's ability to trick you into beleiving yuor happy even for just a short while has been irreparably damaged. We are not clinically depressed hence we continue to see a future in this company that will bring us happiness.
But to continue to expect a certain result even though time and time agian it fails to occur is the defintiion of insanity.
So while we are not yet depressed we are insane and when our insanity converts to depression we will sell ... until then we all will hold on with insane hope that this Mirace Plastic is the basis for a Miraculous turnaround in the stock price.
I used to look forward to seeing this back at 3, I can only hope that we have a chance to see 1.50... But in my mind's eye I see miracles abound.
Reddy seems like you are a short termer - you're here for the spike if any and then you're gone - so are you any better than Stockspot/Lebed
All we need is a little something and we can easily double
Brand companies in bioplastic feedstock alliance

Brand companies such as the Coca-Cola Company, Danone, Ford, Heinz, Nestle, Nike, Procter & Gamble and Unilever have joined the World Wildlife Fund to launch the Bioplastic Feedstock Alliance (BFA). Many of these companies, by the way, are here at Ecochem conference talking about their experience in the bioplastic area. I have already heard presentations from Nestle, Nike and Coca-Cola. I have yet to hear from Procter & Gamble.
According to the press release announced yesterday, the primary focus of BFA is to guide the responsible selection and harvesting of feedstocks such as sugarcane, corn, bulrush (? I am not familiar with this one), and switchgrass that are used to make plastics. BFA intends to bring together leading experts across various industries and organizations to help guide the evaluation and sustainable development of bioplastic feedstocks.
The Alliance’s eight founding companies, along with the WWF, are supported by academic experts, supply chain partners, suppliers, and technology development companies.
Nestle said it is particularly interested in second generation bioplastics such as those made from byproducts of forestry, agriculture or in the food chain such as molasses or cane residue, as well as non-food sources such as algae, cellulose and waste products.
“Joining the alliance means we will be able to help build a more sustainable future for the bioplastics industry whilst addressing issues such as land use, food security and biodiversity,” said Nestlé’s Global Research and Development Sustainability Manager, Anne Roulin.
Nestle is already using bioplastics such as PLA (in Purina One pet food packaging), bio-PE (in beverage caps) and bio-PET (in Vittel bottled water). At the Ecochem conference, Nestle’s packaging environmental sustainability expert Lars Lundquist noted the difficulty of using composta
Not sure why this guy is working so hard to scare away MBLX investors.... My guess is that he is short or supporting the shorts,,,,, or is part of the near trap scenario....
3/4 unions on Pucci side makes this a hard win but it appears that the tide may be turning as receivers are giving Pucci a put up or shut up ultimatum.. The idea here I beleive is to have pucci show them the money so basically they are calling his bluff either her has a true investor with funds or he his just bluffing,.. Hopefully by thanksgivig this turkey will be done....
The plant receivers Antibiotic Leon have asked the trial liquidation of the company, a move that the Pucci family-owned-can be avoided by proving the payment of various amounts totaling 548,000 euros. Specifically, these amounts would target the safety commissioning of facilities and people-168.000-and partial monthly expenses recognized.
If no such accreditation, calls for the dissolution of the company, "because you should not steal the possibility that the bankruptcy process is a tool or legal channel to maintain the activity of the plant, with its new scale and investment contributing to preserve a very important company in the industrial world of Leon ". It also calls for a commitment of monthly cover sufficient funds to meet the expenses incurred until the adoption of a hypothetical agreement.
The UGT union section in Antibiotics, which holds the presidency of the council, said the matter has reached "the moment of truth, for the owners, solely responsible for this situation, for this union that defends the settlement not to USO, which supports for technicians 'rebels' who work in the shadows to produce the settlement and to the Board and Mr. Villanueva, who needs no comment ".
Gadea Group issued an ultimatum for weeks on his proposal to take over the company, an approach that has the support of part of the staff-nearly 300 workers, and any trade union. Just days ago, about a hundred employees of Antibiotics started a petition to force the convening of a meeting to know the actual status of the company.
Would be interesting if MBLX does have an ace up it;s sleeve,,,
Occupy The Market: Turning Food Waste To Plastic, 3D Printing, and Urban Farming
By lucas@endneoliberalism On 11 Apr, 2013 At 10:49 AM | Categorized As Green Business | With 0 Comments
The global demand for plastic continues to grow at an average annual rate of 4%. Creating plastics from food waste is an alternative that reduces both our oil dependency and gives Earth a breather with biodegradable plastics.
Metabolix is a company based in Massachusetts that has seen its ups and downs since it was founded in 1992. Its stock went from $15 in 2008 to $1.62 today.
The main challenge it faces is that oil-based plastics are much more price competitive than green alternatives due to the hundreds of billions of dollars that profitable oil corporations receive in subsidies. This challenge could easily be met with progressive politics, something that will not happen within this decade given the high level of corruption in our government (End Neoliberalism, Tax & Regulate The One Percent)
This challenge can also be met by producing premium products that justify the higher cost of materials. Plastic bags and packaging material may not be the perfect market to be for Metabolix, and perhaps for this reason the company recently expanded its brand portfolio with SoilWrap, a PHA biopolymer-based pot for planting plants in your backyard (See video below).
The current price equilibrium may favor prehistoric industries over green innovators; however, given the high demand for green products, the general perception of higher quality, and people’s willingness to pay premium prices, companies like Metabolix should double their commitment to sustainability by extending their brand using other revolutionary technologies and methods of production. In Occupy The Market ($2.99), we discuss the prospects of Urban Farming and 3D technologies. What we build next is up to all of us.
seems to be an internet hypster who made a connection between MBLX and 3D printing ,,,,, even though there's never been any indication from management that they are even considering that business,
How Sad .. Was having a good day till I read this is all pump and dump
Do we still own prefererred shares or a per cent of the company to we still receive royalties ... seems that our royalty stream is 1/4 of our income yet we don't have muxh detail behind it,, And it may be our savior. Likewuse what is happenning with Camelina - why is there so little focu on this effort since it too might be one of the few salvagble items of value,... Still looking to add at these levels and praying for new leadership.
Normey... Your opinion please on the wording around the following statements by Engle ......
Mvera B5010 is the first commercial product release following the announcement of our collaboration with Samsung Fine Chemicals and it delivers on Metabolix's aim to extend our product range to meet customer needs in the marketplace, offering a robust balance of toughness and load-bearing capability.... Is this MBLX-speak and simply want to make us think that there is some sort of combined effort between MBLX and SFC ... or are they simply indicating that this just happens to be a product announced post the SFC anouncement but in reality has nothing at all to doi with SFC.... MBLX is a master at double speak Just read the Coyne vs MBLX to see how well they negotiate through the English Language
Hopefully this is fundamental but it might be a simple dead cat bounce or a technical short selling close out as the stock trades above 1.17 and confirme the Bullish two rabbits reversal from Short to Long... Let's see how this day progresses
