IMCD leverages BioAmber partnership at the Plant Based Summit, for the distribution of bio-succinic acid in synthesis, resins & coatings in Europe.

The Plant Based Summit that took place in Paris on November 19th-21st is a European conference and exhibition dedicated to bio-based solutions with over 100 international speakers from industry, Finance, the European Commission, and local authorities.

IMCD, one of the leading global distributors of specialty products, partnered with BioAmber for the distribution of bio-succinic acid in synthesis, resins & coatings in almost all western & central Europe, used this forum to promote BioAmber and their other partners for "green" solutions in a broad range of markets, including synthesis, coatings, food, and personal care.

IMCD is one of the few distributors able to propose a consistent bio based portfolio. It's a strong driver within IMCD's strategy to grow their bio based product range and propose more and more renewable alternatives to petro based products. Around BioAmber succinic acid, they have 7 synergistic suppliers for the resins & coating business (CVC, Akros, Dupont Tate & Lyle, Byk, Arizona Chemical and Geo).

The exhibition was a success for IMCD in term of contacts and image; an excellent opportunity to differentiate themselves, and BioAmber, on the basis of bio, as compared to other distributors.
