Reverdia Certifies Biosuccinium™ Portfolio Useful for Paints, Coatings’s Resins & more

Published on 2014-10-08. Author : SpecialChem

In addition to its production capacity of about 10,000 tons/year out of the Cassano, Italy Biosuccinium™ plant, Reverdia announced at the European Forum for Industrial Biotechnology (EFIB) that it is now licensing Biosuccinium™. This is a clear advantage for companies who want to integrate bio-succinic acid production into their business offering, enabling competitive bio-based materials.

On making the announcement, Marcel Lubben, President of Reverdia said, "By licensing the Biosuccinium™ technology as well as selling product direct, we are ensuring that more customers can benefit from Reverdia’s experience in technology and application development. The licensing offering is essential to unlock the bio-based market and is the next logical step in our evolution."

Biosuccinium™ is a building block for the production of polymers and chemicals, including bioplastic polybutylene succinate (PBS), resins for paints and coatings, phthalate-free plasticizers and polyester polyols for polyurethanes. Reverdia’s low pH yeast fermentation process has best-in-class carbon performance as demonstrated by the published cradle-to-gate LCA by the University of Utrecht.

About Reverdia

In June 2010, Royal DSM N.V., the global Life Sciences and Materials Sciences company headquartered in the Netherlands, and Roquette Frères, the global starch and starch-derivatives company headquartered in France, announced the signing of a joint venture (JV) agreement, named Reverdia, for the production, commercialization and market development of Biosuccinium™, sustainable succinic acid. Biosuccinium™ is the first non-fossil feedstock derived chemical building block that allows customers in the chemical industry to choose a bio-based alternative with a lower eco-footprint for a broad range of applications, from packaging to footwear.
