On Tuesday, The 33rd use of the Defense Production Act will provide a $765 million loan to support the launch of Kodak Pharmaceuticals. Kodak will now produce generic active pharmaceutical ingredients, which Trump underlines as being “A big deal”.  Using advanced manufacturing techniques, Kodak will also make the key starting materials that are the building blocks for many drugs in a manner that is both cost-competitive and environmentally safe.
