Lanxess Customers Show Sample Parts

Published October 18, 2013
Genomatica announced that additional companies have made sample parts that use BDO made with
its bio-based process technology. In June, Lanxess announced that it
had converted 20 tons of BDO made with Genomatica's process at their
world-scale PBT plant. Now, some of Lanxess' customers have used that
PBT to make sample parts, and two are showcasing samples at Lanxess'
booth (#C76/78 in hall 06) at the international K Trade Fair, which is
focused on the plastics and rubber industries.

Mennekes, a leading maker of electrical products, has made electrical
junction boxes; Trevira, a leading maker of high-tech polyester fibers
and filaments, has made a non-woven technical textile, which is often
used in protective clothing.

"These materials are the latest examples of the application usability
of bio-based BDO made with Genomatica's commercial process technology,"
said Christophe Schilling, Ph.D., CEO of Genomatica. "These proof
points follow announcements by Lanxess, DSM, Toray, and Far Eastern New
Century -- along with detailed technical support -- validating
Genomatica's process. We believe that licensees of our technology will
find ever-increasing application demand for the renewable and proven
version of BDO that they are bringing to the market."
