Metabolix, Inc. (NASDAQ: MBLX), a bioscience company focused on developing clean, sustainable solutions for plastics, chemicals and energy, today announced that it has appointed Stephen J. Large to its board of directors. Mr. Large brings more than 25 years of experience in the global chemicals industry to the Company’s board. The appointment is effective as of Monday, March 26, 2012.

“As a veteran of the global chemicals industry, Steve brings both operational expertise and deep market knowledge to the board,” said Richard P. Eno, President and CEO of Metabolix. “We look forward to Steve’s insight as we execute our business strategy around the delivery of sustainable, differentiated alternatives to conventional plastics and chemicals.”

Since 2008, Mr. Large has served as president and chief executive officer of Schenectady, New York-based SI Group, Inc., a private global company specializing in the development and manufacturing of chemical intermediates. Mr. Large also previously served SI Group as president and chief operating officer. Prior to joining SI Group, Mr. Large spent 15 years with Minnesota-based H.B. Fuller, an adhesives, sealants and coatings company, in numerous global roles, including his most recent position as president of the specialty group. Mr. Large also served as general manager and director of South African chemical manufacturer T&C Chemical Industries PTY Ltd. He holds a bachelor’s degree in polymer science and technology from the Plastics and Rubber Institute at Manchester Polytechnic in the United Kingdom.

“A transformation of the global chemicals industry will gain momentum over the coming years as brand owners and consumers increasingly seek ‘green’ alternatives to conventional plastics and chemicals from fossil fuels. Metabolix’s technology platforms and product offerings are industry leading and uniquely suited to the trends emerging in the market for biobased plastics and chemicals,” said Mr. Large. “I look forward to working with the board of directors and Metabolix to capture the commercial potential of this growing market.”
